I've said this before and the intro to this song made me think of it again...most good country songs are self deprecating IMO. I think artists today are too concerned about selling their image to release many songs that don't promote how "awesome" they are. ...

Interesting responses for far. For those of you (buyers) who value the relationship, would you describe your sale as transactional vs a complex sales cycle?
