(Newser) – Struggling pop star Jessica Simpson’s country crossover got off to a rocky start Saturday when her debut performance at Wisconsin’s Country Thunder Festival drew a decidedly mixed reaction from the crowd, the Kenosha News reports. "I just don't hear the country in her; I don't hear the twang. She's not good enough to be here," said a country fan.

"Just because she's dating Tony Romo it doesn't make her country," said another audience member.
