Jason Kelce admits he’s not a fan of modern country music.

On the June 19 episode of his and brother Travis Kelce’s podcast New Heights, the newly retired Philadelphia Eagles player, 36, discussed what it would be like if the siblings visited the future, and what music might look like at the time.

“I feel like I can't go into the future because even trying to relate to, like, kids coming up now… I can't even think about kids 40 years from now. Like, this is gonna be weird,” Jason said, adding, “What's the music gonna be in 40 years?”

Jason then discussed his thoughts on different genres of music today, such as hip-hop and country.

“Hip-hop in the nineties and hip-hop in the eighties when it was done by, like, dudes that were living that life hits way different than, like, now when it's like auto-tune renditions,” he said. “It's the same thing in country music. If I have to hear one more country song that's like, ‘I got my boots in my truck going through the fields.’ Like, what the f--- are we talking about? That's not country music. That's not country music.”

“Put on some f------ Willie Nelson,” Jason added. “I am tired of country music and what it has become. It is horse----. Horse----.”

Travis, 34, added that he “like[s] some of the country music coming out,” and the brothers agreed on a few singers in the genre they enjoy.

“Like, I can listen to modern country, and I can listen to, like, modern hip-hop when I'm out in the right environment,” Jason said. “But listening to it to, like, really enjoy it, like Willie Nelson, to me, the way he wrote songs, like Chris Stapleton, obviously, right now.”

“He's a super performer,” Travis said. “That's what I'm saying. It's a band. When you're playing the music and got a voice like that, that's forever.”

“Tried and true,” Jason added.

The June 19 New Heights episode also saw the brothers discussing various topics aside from music, including the Chiefs Super Bowl LVIII Championship ring typo, to which Travis replied “Who cares?”

"I think it makes it more unique. Like, 'Oh, yeah, we made it really detailed, and, oops, we screwed up,' " Travis said, adding that the mistake "makes it more exclusive."

"We screwed up about something that means nothing," he said.

“It's a thought that's like, I love playing this game at the highest level possible,” the Kansas City Chiefs star said. “And I love playing at it at a level where I know I can have a bunch of success. I know I can still go out there and mow down dudes in the end zone. I know I can go out there and catch a flat route and turn it into a 15, 20-yard game and make a few guys miss.”

“The moment that I can't do that, I think that's when I'm just gonna be like, ‘Alright. What am I doing this for?’ ” he continued.
