YMMV: American Country Countdown

  • Replacement Scrappy: Many longtime fans of the show dislike Kix Brooks for his high, whiny voice and "chummy" attitude towards artists, not to mention the corporate decision to cut the show from 40 to 30 because program directors were "uncomfortable" with the newness of the 31-40 songs. Meanwhile, many professional deejays hate Kix for quickly rising in the ranks of professional radio hosts despite a lack of experience.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Late in the Kingsley era, the commercial bumpers were often sound-alikes of country songs. But this was also twisted and had similar applications through the years:
    • One of the musical cues in the 1977 jingle package featured backup vocalist J.D. Sumner, known best for singing backup on several of Olivia Newton John's mid-1970s hits ("Let Me Be There" and "If You Love Me Let Me Know") and on Elvis Presley's "Way Down."
    • The new 2015 jingle package is heavily styled after the current bro-country craze.
