Were Country Artist a Bad Luck Charm for The Bachelor?
Last night was the season finale of the Bachelor. You know I'm a big fan of the show, but if I'm being honest this season was a snooze fest.
Don't get me wrong Colton Underwood seems like a great guy and he's obviously very attractive, but all they focused on this season was his virginity and the joke got old quick.
I'm happy Colton found love with Cassie, even though I think it's a complete sham and Cassie is playing him like a fiddle. But if he's happy right now, good for him.
While I hated a majority of the season, it did open my eyes to some great new country artist.
It's no secret that The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise loves a good country song. Chris Lane, Dan + Shay, Russell Dickerson, Billy Currington, LANCO, The Eli Young band have all performed at some point in their career.
This season Tenille Arts and Brett Young helped Colton fall in love. Tenille performed her song "I Hate This" after Colton and Elyse's one on one date. Elyse later left on her own time, because she wasn't trying to share Colton with 20 other girls. So maybe it didn't bring the best luck, at least it was a great song.
Brett Young provided the music on Colton and Caelynn's PRIVATE concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater (that's my dream date!). Brett sang his latest "Here Tonight" while the two danced the night away.
Caelynn also didn't make it to the finale, so I guess country artist didn't have a great track record this season.
ABC also missed out on a huge opportunity to bring Morgan Wallen to the show.
During the finale while Colton and Cassie reunited (insert a heavy eye roll here) Colton mentioned that one of his favorite songs was "If I Know Me." Country twitter blew up and Morgan took notice:
You would think that during After The Final Rose ABC would introduce Morgan to play for the happy couple, but no. We were treated to a performance by... Air Supply.
Maybe they saw how things went after Tenille and Brett so they decided to play it safe. Oh well, it worked out for me. Tenille Arts is probably one of my favorite artist right now.
