Anybody listen to Country Music...other then me?

It seems that most newer country music is no different than Britney-esque pop. I don't dig that a bit, but some of the true legends are awesome. I dig Willie Nelson (Red Headed Stranger is brilliant), Johnny Cash, Allison Krause, Some Randy Travis is cool, Lucinda Williams, etc. etc.

I actually like country music a lot too...I've gotten into it a lot recently with a new XM radio I bought a few months ago. I enjoy a lot of the artists arleady mentioned in this thread...I don't think Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, or Don Williams have been mentioned yet...those are some of my favorites as well.

I think that pretty much all of the mainstream country (Toby Keith, Alan Jackson... yeah, I'm lookin' at you) is terrible. Can't stand it.

However, I do listen to some country - not much, but some.

Anyone who hasn't checked out Johnny Cash's "American Recordings" series ought to be ashamed of themselves. There's some absolutely awesome stuff on those CDs. His old stuff is good too, but his later works were fantastic. Loretta Lynn's new CD, "Van Lear Rose", with Jack White was pretty good - I'm not really familiar with anything else she's done though. Some other stuff I like is Lucinda Williams and some of Willie Nelson's stuff.

There's also some good "alternative country", I 'spose you would call it. Whiskeytown has fine CDs. Ryan Adams has even made some good stuff on his own (there's a great version on his last CD, "Love is Hell")... Wilco and Uncle Tupelo are usually bunched in that category too... they've made plenty of good CDs - I really like "Summer Teeth" from Wilco.

I'm sure there's some stuff that I'm missing, but I think I've covered enough. B-)

The only country song I like is Sweet Home Alabama. Everything else is pretty brutal.

For the record, I dont think that most of Shania Twains songs are country. Some are, but most should be classified as "pop"

Heh, Sweet Home Alabama is a southern rock song by Lynyrd Skynyrd... :-b

But yeah, Shania's last two CD's have been pretty dang "poppy," and I didn't really like that. The stuff on her first hit CD was a little more country, but not by much.

It doesn't matter to me though, because she's so dang hot!!!! ;-D

My favorite is Steve Earle ... the latest in a long line of Nashville bad boys.
Great songs ... ;-D
Kenny Chesney amuses me too.

Hey, that's cool, I've been into celtic music for the last 6 or 7 years. Are you into the newer or the more traditional stuff?



Both.... I listen to the traditional stuff a lot when I'm looking to listen to something on the more mellow side, but I also listen to a lot of Celtic rock/punk stuff as well....

My top Celtic bands would probably be:

The Pogues / Shane McGowan
Dropkick Murphy's
The Dubliners
Clancy Brothers

and a much less well known new school band called:

Siobhan.... You can check them out, here: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/8/siobhanmusic.htm

Its weird. I can't stand the 'new' country of Brooks and Dunn and George Straight. I worked in a restaurant with a bar attached that played "i know low people in high places" or whatever so often i am now emotionally scarred.

But I really enjoy traditional Bluegrass. And, one of my favorite tapes to listen to is Johnny Cash's Live at Folsom Prison.
