That's like hearing Nickelback on the radio and deciding rock sucks.

And yeah, the lines between country, folk, blues, and such get blurry, which is one of the reasons I think it's so silly to cast off entire genres when there's so much overlap to begin with.

i'm not trying to argue here or anything
but even rock stations play way better music than nickelback, and ive heard A LOT of country on radio
if youre trying to say that country music on the radio all sucks, then i see your point

i meant that people i know call me a music snob and pretty much poo-poo everything that i listen to, ESPECIALLY U2.

Anyway, listen to whatever you like. Go forth and be uncool. Let everyone else worry about what's okay to like.
that's basically my philosophy.

You have a right to like whatever you want, it's silly to get that bothered by someone else's taste in music. There are far more important things in the world. There is music I think is total crap, but if someone else likes it that's their thing..

Some people do that in this forum, that's the main reason I don't post here all that much.

Ryan showed me that not all country music is bad. I'm actually a lot more open to country now.

However, one of the great things about Ryan is that he isn't just country. He is so versatile.

Luckily, people at my work, family, etc., have more important things on their mind than teasing someone for their musical tastes.

I actually think that Ryan Adams is NOT country. I dislike most country music. Adams just uses harmonica's, steel guitars, and other instruments commonly used in country songs. But the style of music doesn't seem like country to me.

Well, I definitely consider some of his work to be country (as much as I hate categorizing music into genres)...especially if you're gonna include some of his work with Whiskeytown.

People don't really make fun of me, but sometimes I know they think I'm weird.

Same here. But most of my friends and colleagues actually respect my music taste and if they discover someone new they always ask me if I know them and I can tell they hope that I approve, lol.

People who don't know what else to say to me (men, mostly) might tease me about U2 ("So, what are you doing this weekend, going to a U2 show in Finland?" ) but it's not mean-spirited.
