First off, thank you all for voting. Round one of this bracket saw something like 50 people vote per poll, and by the end, over 80 people had voted per poll. Listen, 80 isn’t a lot, and I understand that, but it’s a start, and I truly am thankful for everyone who takes time out of their busy day just to vote. With that being said, here is how each round went. Who do you think has the best mullet in country music?
Ricky Skaggs 56% vs. Hardy 44%
Riley Green 81% vs. Justin Moore 19%
Joe Dirt 42% vs. Tracey Lawrence 58%
Joe Diffie 75% vs. Billy Ray Cyrus 25%
Travis Tritt 62% vs. Blake Shelton 38%
Marty Stuart 53% vs. Jade Eagleson 47%
Alan Jackson 92% vs. Theo Von 8%
Ernest 8% vs. Morgan Wallen 92%
Takeaway: I would say that six of them went how I expected out of the eight matchups, and one of them I wasn’t really surprised by. I agreed with and voted for Joe Diffie to beat Billy Ray Cyrus, but I expected Billy Ray to make it more interesting than he did. When I asked people for opinions, Billy Ray and Morgan Wallen were the two most popular names I got. Maybe it’s just a result of my following that people picked the true country singer over the pop-country cross-over, but the 75-25 breakdown shocked me.
Also, shout out to Ernest for voting on the poll. If you noticed, he only got 8% of the votes over his boy Morgan Wallen, but he voted for himself over Morgan Wallen, which he was one of only three to do that. He also voted for Theo Von over Alan Jackson, which might be a homer vote because the two are friends but put him on the wrong end of the two worst votes in the round. Despite that, I appreciate the effort and attention from Ernest.
Alan Jackson 70% vs. Riley Green 30%
Morgan Wallen 85% vs. Ricky Skaggs 15%
Joe Diffie 87% vs. Marty Stuart 13%
Travis Tritt 53% vs. Tracey Lawrence 47%
Another round of minimal surprises, in my opinion. Riley Green getting 30% of the vote was a pleasant surprise since I figured Alan Jackson would totally dismantle him. Also, Tracey Lawrence was ahead of Travis Tritt for probably 20 out of the 24 hours possible, but in the end, Tritt was able to take the lead and move on.
Morgan Wallen 61% vs Joe Diffie 39%
Travis Tritt 23% vs. Alan Jackson 77%
I’m not really surprised by either of these, but I will say that I thought that Joe Diffie would’ve beat Morgan Wallen out. Personally, I voted for Wallen; if we are talking mullet for mullet, he is famous for it and deserves to go rounds due to that. That brings us to an exciting finale, between the biggest name in country music of the 2020s and the biggest artist of the 1990s (in my opinion.)
Morgan Wallen 29% vs. Alan Jackson 71%
Is anyone shocked by this result? I expected it to be a little closer of a result, but overall I would’ve bet money on Alan Jackson winning. That will unfortunately wrap up the end of the mullet bracket. IF you want to read something else like this, HERE is the barfight bracket I did last month. What should be next?
