If It's #3 On The Country Chart, It's "Country"

Snarky "Quotable Country" questions the country cred of Love & Theft:
"We think we fit perfectly in the country music format. We don’t sound like Waylon or Hank, but we’re not trying to! We’re not trying to do what anyone else has done.  We tried to hone in on that Crosby, Stills and Nash and Eagles vibe."  – Eric Gunderson explains how Love & Theft isn’t like anyone else in country music, but IS like Crosby, Stills and Nash and the Eagles. Which makes them country because, uh… I don’t know.
As A&O recalls, country radio played plenty of CSNY and Eagles back in their day too. 

Our rule of thumb has always been:  if country music fans love it, it's COUNTRY.

Anyone old enough to remember "Hank Wilson?"
