The last time I ever saw someone buying a CD was at Wal-Mart. While waiting in an unnecessarily long line to get a pint of midnight Ben & Jerry's because I lost my self respect a long time ago, I saw someone in front of me with even less self respect.
In the overflowing shopping cart, on top of some And 1 neon green sandals and several microwavable dinners, were various country music CDs. I don't remember all of the artists, but Toby Keith was front and center.
I was baffled: the last time I remember ever buying a CD was when I went to a Coconuts the day Sam's Town from the Killers dropped. That huge disappointment was the end of the compact disc era, as far as I was concerned, and yet here this man was, in 2017, buying his music on a dead medium.
