  1. 1. Do you like country music?



Recommended Posts

I don't like the majority of what one hears on a country music station. Some of it I can't even stomach.

There is plenty of music that is classified as country that I do like very much.

I like its origins and outlaw country- Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Leon Russell. Modern Country gets a no.

This. I can't stand today's top-40 country. Give me the old stuff tho! And some good ol' bluegrass thrown in.

Collin Raye. He's drifted into Christian music these days.

Count me three. Current country is pop with a twang.

I am not a huge fan of the old stuff but it is miles better then what is out there today.

With the caveat - Outlaw country on Sirius, Emmylou, Alison Krauss, good old boys like Merle, Waylon, George Strait and the like. Predictable modern country music does not excite me.

My wife loves country music, so I've listened to lots of it to try to force myself to like it.

I draw a clear line between "good" country" and "factory" country. It's obvious to me that many country songs are written very quickly, like they came from a factory. They pick a mundane aspect of daily life, write some rhyming lyrics, and make sure that each verse or chorus ends in the title of the song. However, every once in a while I'll hear something "different" that will be appealing to me. Here's some stuff I like:

Ditto. No New Country. Period.

As country is defined today, no. I do like country music elements in non-country songs: pedal steel guitar, banjo...just not people singing songs about America in fake southern accents.
