    ... and if we just ... MUSIC..That's right, Country Music

    Okay folks, lets keep it clean. None of that Contemporary Country [insert disparaging noun] that you hear on "country radio." If you want to discuss that, start your own damn thread

    I'm pretty limited in this genre myself: Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Woodie Guthrie

    And I'll listen to some of the genre bending murky waters of alt-country-indie, such as Ryan Adams, Wilco, Deer Tick and blue grass: Old Crow Medicine Show, Avett Brothers, Bela Fleck.

    Whatcha got?

    Jamey Johnson reminds me of some Cash.
    His 2008 album is all about pissn' it all away.
    Best video of any genre is "HURT" by johnny cash.

    Johnny Cash's final album is my favorite of all. Super dark, incredibly raw... what a gift to leave to us.

    I actually really dig on Blue Grass - listen to Ralph Stanley's acapella version of "O Death" from the "O Brother Where Art Thou" soundtrack. DEEP.

    John Doe from the punk band "X" did a country album. INCREDIBLE.

    I like a lot of that alt-country-indie stuff and a good bit of bluegrass. as far as the classic country stuff goes, I don't like a lot of it...not enough to say I prefer specific artists more than others...but I do like some individual songs enough to say I actually like them. Some stuff from Willie Nelson, some stuff from Johnny Cash, some Woodie Guthrie, etc.

    Pop country? gag me now.

    If it's gotta be country, it's gotta be authentic and old school. Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, etc. Not a fan of most alt-cun# or any of that craptastic new pop-plasticky stuff, it's all derivative to me.

    If you grew up in the 'burbs, your mama isn't incarcerated, drunk or promiscuous, and you know the difference between a call and put option then you might *not* be a country singer.

    Just a few I grew up with, I can't remember them all. Excuse my spelling of the names.

    Waylon Jennings, Conway Twity, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rodgers, Oak Ridge Boys, Box Car Willie.

    I don't listen to country much anymore, I've been into metal for some time now.

    I have all six albums in Cash's American Recordings series, all are great but VI may be my favorite, following by II. Cash is killing this thread.

    Oh man... Johnny Cash, Charlie D, Little Jimmy Dickens, Hank Sr., Willie, Waylon, David Allen Coe, George Jones.

    I LOVE old country. I HATE 95% of the "country" songs that have come out in the last 10 years.

    Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, and the 220987234587 SOBs (Some Other Blond chick) ruined country music. It all got ruined when Tim McGraw started to suck because he went soft and started wearing Faith Hill's clothes.

    I have to add... OCMS and the Avett Bros are amazing. Seen them both live, and the Avett Bros absolutely blew my mind.

    Why do country singers have to rhyme every word even if it doesn't make sense? Some songs ^ sound like an endless read of drawn out words in hopes they tie together somehow.

    It helps to have good looks these days because the talent is far and few between.

    Saw Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson in concert in 1994-that was fantastic! Lots of others that folks already mentioned are great. Merle Haggard is awesome. Roger Miller is great but bipolar--his songs are either hilarious or suicidal.

    Some of my earliest musical memories are playing Johnny Cash 45s on my little kid's record player. When my dad and I didn't see eye to eye on much of anything, we could still sit together and listen to Cash or Kristofferson.

    There's still people that are keeping the flame alive but you likely won't hear them on Country Radio. I like Asleep at the Wheel and The TurnpikeTroubadours for traditional sounds, and Blackberry Smoke for country rock. Dwight Yoakam, George Straight and Clint Black, among others manage to walk the line between keeping it traditional and commercially successful.

    Willie Nelson has lost it . I saw him a couple years ago and he can't sing anymore. He just kind of talks through his 'songs'.

    All the classic guys and gals are great. Lots of good stuff out there nowadays as well. Drive By Truckers, Jason Isbell and Sturgil Simpson are some of my favorites in the modern era. So many others as well. Yeah, I know they call it Americana, but country ceased to exist many years ago as a genre relative to its past.

    It is apparently beyond a simple cut and paste and that's my point. The usability of this site is laughable when compared to the competition. It doesn't have to be hard.

    "Cut and paste" it sounds like you know how to do it. I'll throw in a tutorial anyways. I find it not that bad,


    First you click on the title at the top of the video.
    MUSIC..That's right, Country Music-image.jpg

    Once you've clicked on that you then click on the arrow at the bottom right.

    MUSIC..That's right, Country Music-image.jpg

    Once you click on that you simply copy the text into the little window then paste it.
    MUSIC..That's right, Country Music-image.jpg

    Of course that's after you click on the little film icon in the mtbr advance screen. Paste it in there and you're golden.

    MUSIC..That's right, Country Music-image.jpg


    That's nothing compared to going to the dentist.

    I have a feeling I just did all that ^ for nothing. You knew how to do it but were too lazy to do so, correct?

    I listened to Lana while out on one of my evening rides once, and by the time I got back to the house I needed a teddy bear and a massive hug!

    Love real country music, not the mostly garbage they play over and over again on the radio these days. One of my faves is Chris Ledoux, he was the real deal. Rodeo cowboy selling tapes out of his pickup at the rodeos. Was a bareback champ back in the '70s too. I saw him several times and he was a hoot! He was virtually unknown until Garth Brooks mentioned him in one of his songs. RIP Chris!

    I like the chorus to this song, it always lifts me up when I'm feeling down.

    Sit tall in the saddle, Hold your head up high
    Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky
    And live like you ain't afraid to die
    And don't be scared, just enjoy your ride

    One of the newer artists that is really good is Kacey Musgraves, singer/songwriter.

    I started to put together a compilation for a friend of stuff I had in my collection that had a country music flavor to it, and the more I listened, the more I got into it. I used to play drums in a country band many years ago, but I never would actually sit down, put a country CD in and listen to it.

    Now I dig it.

    Her compilation? It's up to 18 discs, with plenty of songs to get to 25, probably. You figure 18-22 songs per disc, that's a lot of country music for a guy who, at one time, didn't pay it no heed.

    Net, Lana to you is like Miranda to me.

    Not a huge country fan but love all the greats. Discovered Sturgill Simpson this summer and this song got the most campfire post ride beer drinking play time.

    Sturgill is cool, sounds so much like Waylon. They always ask him what the turtles all the way down song is about. Drugs

    Dave Rawlings Machine:

    Dave Rawlings plus Gillian Welch, their bass player, and a fiddle player.

    Last time I saw them, they did Guy Clark's "Dublin Blues". Brought tears to my eyes, and music doesn't really do that to me.

    I saw Wynton Marsalis tonight. Also amazing. Not country, but fantastic none the less. Student ticket prices to see a 9-time Grammy winner and one of the best jazz ensembles in the workd? Sold.

    Yep...that was the first song I heard of his that perked my ears up & think there is something to this guy. That whole album is fantastic.

    I'm a Chinese guy that was born and raised in San Francisco, but I dig myself some country music. Growing up, my dad listened to a lot of country. I still get weird looks when I'm driving and got my music on loud with this..

    Well it's a little difficult to come up with examples when Im not a country music fan and I'm too lazy to look. I suppose I could throw a dart at a board of country songs and come up with some pretty quick.

    I had a job that took me across miles and miles of deserted road through Colorado and Wyoming. Guess what radio stations I was forced to listen to? Country on AM radio. That's how I know I'm not a fan.

    Nothing against country. I like some of it but the majority, no thanks. And that pos rep I gave you awhile back, I retract.

    I'm a big fan of rockabilly, which is related to Country but hardly the same. The greatest rockabilly duo that ever sang a note was not the Everly Brothers, but the Collins Kids, an act you never heard of, which broke up when sister Lorrie was seventeen and brother Larry, the guitar monster, was 15.

    Here's a sample from the '50s. This was recorded when Larry was 13 and Lorrie was 15.

    By the title I thought it was going to be a remake of Simple Man from Lynyrd Skynyrd. Another great song.

    Been listening to a lot of Waylon and Kris lately. And some Dave Rawlings Machine/Gillian Welch.

    I loved Patty Loveless in the 80s. She had some good stuff.

    Btw... tonight is the start of the Country Music series by Ken Burns on PBS. I’ve been waiting on this all year since they first announced it back in the winter.

    And for sheer poetic genius, the economy of word on the subject cannot be beaten. He covered all the bases.

    and as I wonder where you are, I’m so lonesome I could cry.”

    Jason Isbell isn’t mentioned often enough. I think he’s one of the best performers going today. Southeastern is a great album. One of my favorites.

    I feel like modern “country” music is overly contrived. I think Americana has taken up the mantle, so to speak, of the better country artists of previous generations. It just seems more authentic.

    Also, I’d like to point out that Willie Nelson and his sister, Bobbie, are 86 and 88, respectively, and still putting on good shows. 88 years old, and still touring.

    “Americana”....OK an update of sorts...
    Near top of my list:
    https://youtu.be/TOMR_M_mgsU

    That’s quite a bit from two human voices and an old guitar....

    And for good ole fun.....

    As for the O.P. I agree. The strawhatpusheduphighonthesideswitha sleevelessteeshirtbeercanseverywherebonfireonthebe achwithsleazychicks crap never appealed to me.
    B.R.C. and his ill-spawned progeny wrecking ball comes to mind.
    A byproduct of far too many marketing degrees looking for work I suppose.

    I usually tend to gravitate towards alternative country type acts, like Silver Jews, 90's era Lambchop (the album How I Quit Smoking is quite a gem), or Vic Chesnutt. Good vocals aren't a necessity for me, I'm more interested in thematic content, which is where mainstream music fails me. There're some good indie type bands that draw from country nowadays, like Big Thief and also Buck Meek, but that comes at it from a bit of an abstract angle.

    I do, of course like the classics, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Townes Van Zandt, Hank the first (and only Hank the first).

    I've been listening to tyler childers for a little over a year. He's not true country in the willie and Waylin since. Take a listen. His new album is getting a lot of good press.

    I had heard about it and thought, "Ken Burns, has to be good" but forgot. Then I caught most of Ep. 2 one night on travel in AZ this week. I wasn't disappointed.

    Oh yeah! Love the Townes Van Zandt cameos in Poncho and Lefty!

    I play guitar and sing a little (when no one's around) this is one of my faves to play along.

    MUSIC..That's right, Country Music

    Whenever I see a Steve Earle concert video, I try to think what marriage he was on at that time.

    1? 4? 6? 7?

    His weight and general healthy appearance would make me guess it’s between 0 and 3 in the last video posted.

    That said, Steve Earle is an awesome performer. Saw him and Guy Clark a couple years back (before GC died).

    Been on a Lucinda Williams kick recently.

    I know right, when I first watched it I don't think I've ever remembered him being that young! Guitar Town probably his first hit.

    I think the first time I actually saw him was during his time on The Wire, playing, of all things, an AA group leader. I had heard plenty of his music but never looked him up. My wife has seen him in concert a couple times and said, “Whoa. That’s Steve Earle.”

    His appearance might have actually improved since then. Hope he stays clean.

    Been listening to the The Essential Kris Kristofferson on lately. Me and Bobby McGee, Broken Freedom Song, Just the other Side of Nowhere, etc.

    He's obviously mentioned in the OP, but I feel like he's not mentioned often enough as one of the greats. Spectacular songwriter and storyteller, IMO. Maybe it's because he has a rather sad sound, as a solo act.

    ^^ I forgot about Kris, good stuff! Will have to listen to more of that, the Highwaymen was cool albums for him and Cash, Willie and Waylon.

    Just heard this new song the other day, it's been out for a while but it's awesome! I think even people that don't like country music can relate.

    Just learned that Mr. John Prine is on a ventilator. My wife and I saw him, with Old Crow Medicine Show, way back in 2011, a bit more than a month after we started dating, at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Here's to a speedy recovery, Mr. Prine.

    I just found out that Ellis Marsalis died. Shit.

    Not really in keeping with this thread, as it's country specific, but if you guys ever get to see his son Wynton Marsalis play, do it. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is spectacular. Just good MUSIC.

    Yeah, real bummer. Lots of folks dying, and famous people tend to travel more, I guess.

    Also, if anyone remembers that song "John Deere Green", Joe Diffie died from coronavirus a few days ago.

    I absolutely love John Prine. My wife and I had our first dance at our wedding to "in spite of ourselves". Admittedly she didn't know the song that well and trusted me to pick, but in many ways I have a strong connection with his music. I've got his first album on repeat, many times.

    You know, I wouldn't say I'm crazy about that song, but I've never flipped the station when it came on. When I lived in more rural parts they played it probably one a week (this was 2017 - 2018) and it was that, pop or hair metal, so go figure. It's actually a pretty cute song.

    MUSIC..That's right, Country Music

    My wife and I are watching the last season of The Wire. And, of course, listening to all of our Steve Earle albums. Found a great interview with him. Some hilarious quotes, from a man who has done enough drugs to kill a bull elephant. Or two.

    Is he planning on an eighth marriage, and seventh Mrs Earle? He shakes his head. “Erm, no. I dodged a bullet recently.” Long pause. “There are women. But I like sitting where I want to in the movies and when you go to the theatre at the last minute you can get a really good seat if you’re looking for a single. If I go to a baseball game I can stay for the whole thing.”

    What does he think of today’s country music? “The best stuff coming out of Nashville is all by women except for Chris Stapleton. He’s great. The guys just wanna sing about getting ****ed up. They’re just doing hip-hop for people who are afraid of black people. I like the new Kendrick Lamar record, so I’ll just listen to that.”

    Damn I couldn't agree with the last comment more. Don't really listen to new music based on where it's coming out of. I liked the Silver Jews (alt-country slacker rock kinda vibes) and they were based out of Nashville for more than a decade before Dave Berman offed himself last year. He made a comment on the song "Old Town Road" after it blew up.

    "It bored me. I hear luxury brand names, I cringe. I wanted the protagonist to dismount and do something more exciting than shop."

    I listen to zero country radio pretty much, because that's the kind of drivel they play.
