How is country music in 2022 treating everyone?

As of now, its not comparing to the amazing year of 2021. Both Tyler Childers and Jon Pardi's new albums have been a bit of a disappointment for me. I wouldnt call them bad, just disappointing since Im a huge fan of both. 

On the bright side, there are a good number of great songs out right now that I cant get enough of.

Lainey Wilson-Live Off
Ian Munsick-Horeses & Weed
The Panhandlers-Where Cotton is King
Parker McCollum-Handle on You
Muscadine Bloodline-Evinrudin'
Cody Jinks, Ward Davis, Clint Black-Nothing's News
Megan Moroney-Tennessee Orange

Just a few of the songs Im loving right now

In total, I listened to about 50 albums multiple listens and about another 10 albums that I gave one listen or less and decided to give up. Im not listening to music I dont like anymore. If I listed my total numbers, Id only have a few albums under 50 because I am refusing to waste my time on albums I know I will hate before even listening.

Not the greatest of years for country music. The top is not great. Some very good music but I dont think there were any albums that I will look back and have at the top for the decade. Still gave 16 albums a grade of 80 or better and that seems to be close enough to most years for me.

90+ Great Album. Hardly any issues 
80+ Very Good Album. Most of the album is a great listen
70+ Solid Album. It has its issues but the positives easily outweigh negatives
60+ Meh Album. Some good. A lot of bad. Usually bland area
50+ Not Good. The album is clearly bad but it has some descent stuff mixed in
>50 Bad Album. Varying degrees
