County Music Wholesome? Not

I've been listening to country music radio for the past 30 minutes. Something I never do. But the kids that I grew up with always insisted that country was more wholesome than the grunge and punk rock that I listened to. So ... Why not. Breakdown of songs are as follows. One song about the need to call the cops because some girl is that hot. Two songs about one night stands - the second of which extolled the merits of moonshine over red wine. One song with a chorus that repeatedly told me to drink a beer. A song promising that breaking up with a significant other will help you feel better. And finally a song about a guy who fell in love with a strange girl he never met because they got arrested together. Wholesome? Yeah ... About that/Nic Casey, Faithful Geek.

Question: What kind of music is the most wholesome (not counting religious music)?
