‘You Can’t Take My Door’ is both country music and AI’s greatest achievement

We know there’s no justice in the world because the Country Music Awards, held earlier this month, didn’t issue the evening’s most prestigious accolade to Botnik Studios for its AI-generated lyrical masterpiece “You Can’t Take My Door.” The song, sung by humans Elle O’Brien and Timothy Joyce, was written by Recursive Neural Network, which was programmed by Botnik Studios.
