Country music

I just started a thread about my love of trance and house music....

However, my OTHER new music obsession is COUNTRY!!!! It is very addictive...
I love Tim McGraw, the Dixie Chicks, George Strait, Travis Tritt, Garth, Randy Travis, and almost the whole Y107 lineup here in New York City. It's almost embaressing, but I really do like it. Am I alone here?

I used to love country music when i was about 10 if that helps
actually some of it's good, the lyrics are really simple and uplifting at times, just can't take too much you know

I've never been a fan of country. Sounds all the same to me, and not really my cup of tea anyway. Trance on the other hand is a very different story.

Garth is good, Johnny Cash is good, um Willie's cool too. Don't like that Kenny Chesney shite, though.

I grew up with Johnny Cash music, my Mom would be playing country music on the radio every morning

I hear the train a comin'; it's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when.
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on.
But that train keeps rollin' on down to San Antone.


I love the old stuff but I think it's more sentimental than anything.

But there is one new group I like, Hayseed Dixie!! Heard of 'em?

I live in the south, love the south and HATE country music. I like some Johnny Cash but he isn't country, he's Johhny Cash. He's like Frank Sinatra, you have to respect him. I loathe most country music and their lame videos that my family insists on watching all the time.

I live near Patsy Cline's hometown...country in the Wal Mart...country in the resturants...country on the hold button on the telephone...enough!!

The locale music scene is country.

Every time someone plays a country sound around my daughter..(the singer) she starts in this hick redneck voice..."I miss my dawg....."

I don't hate it...but I'm tired of it...

I hate country music, really. I live in Nashville, TN. I think it is just probably crammed down my throat too much...

I'm a fan of Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Bob Wills but I don't care for any of the new country music. And actually, I'm attracted to western swing music, not country. Bob Wills is the grandfather of western swing. Johnny Cash plays some of what I would call western swing but then he's got a lot of ballad-y and folksy stuff too. But like Johnny Swallow said, he ain't country, he's Johnny Cash. And I just think he's a badass mofo.

I couldn't agree more. Country sounds like a bunch of dogs barkin'. As if the videos weren't enough, have you seen the TRL-type show that the one country cable network has now? I guess they thought TRL was short for "TRAILER".

It's all music Hitman. Some powerful songs have been recorded in the country music genre over the years. I admire good musicianship no matter what kind of music it is. Some very talented guitarists doing the country circuit here in Oz.
"Country" is a broad term, there are some songs that are just plain ridiculous too.
