    Wow.. You like the old stuff... I like these guys too, but obviously we don't hear much of them on the radio anymore. However....our local station plays these guys "after hours" when I am driving home from work.

    I like: Chris LeDoux, George Strait, Mark Chesnutt, Kenny Chesney, Alabama, Conway Twitty, Diamond Rio, Tracy Byrd, Dan Seals, Paul Overstreet. I am sure that there are more...especially older singers, but I can't think of them off hand.
    Um... You say you stopped listening because it changed so much. Because it is more upbeat and a "rock" beat anymore? Cuz most of the guys you listed there are still being played.

    and OMG HOW could I forget Shania. I have the DVD from Chicago to kick of the "UP" tour. And DAMN! She is a favorite. I am embarrassed I forgot that sexy thing. LOL. And Wynonna also a great plug. I saw her and Mom as The Judds in Vegas. BLEW ME AWAY! Also saw her solo. Wynonna is definately a fav as well. More to come....

    The Band (I put them here, although they aren't really country and they aren't really rock, and they aren't really folk, and they aren't really blues. They are Americana....which is odd, since they are 4/5 Canadian. Anyway, The Band is more like the country from that era than anything else).
    The Band was considered more rock that I remembered. And Also glad you mentioned Randy Travis. Great guy. Also noticed you mentioned the Chicks. GLAD to know OTHERS still listen to them. Political outspokeness should not ban you from radio. F the producers of radio stations that will STILL not play them. Geezus. Give it a rest.

    How so? The "roots" of country is singing about losing your wife, your dog, your house. We are still there. Heartbreak, love and sadness are still are part of country music.... Yes.... it has a more "upbeat, rock sound" but the WORDS and LYRICS are going with the true nature of the "type" of music.

    I am going to start another entry

    I still listen to the CD's that I have of those guys. And look for anything new that they have put out. I just don't like much of what is being put off as country today. I listen to the CD's that I have and every once in a while I will turn on a country station (but that is rare).
    Patriotic dissent is a luxury of those protected by better men than they.

    I have worked at 3 country stations, and I have never had a listener complain about it.

    I mean, I read about programmers who won't play them, but they are in podunk markets where they are the big fish, so they have the most to lose if their listeners are complaining.

    And ultimately, if your listeners are complaining, you should pay attention. So, you can't say it's all the programmers.

    Anyway, I think it's funny that people say the Chicks aren't really country because of how they dress, yet they have dobros, fiddles, and banjos right up front in the mix. And they play the instruments themselves. But somehow, someone like Patty Loveless and Reba are 'real country' by comparison, when really they are just 70's pop rock with a twang.

    I am not a country die hard, so I just don't get my listeners sometimes.


    And like I said about The Band, I don't know what they are. They are rock, but not like the rock of the era (Neil Young, CS&N, Santana, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, etc). They are just a totally distinctive sounding (and influential) band.

    I am a die-hard rock and roller, as my age will tell anyone, but I started listening to country in 1986 when I met my husband. I really enjoy it, even after 20 years, but I gotta listen to my favorite rock about 50 percent of the time. And trust me, when I play my AC/DC, I practically make my hubby's ears bleed, lol. Our son is the only one who doesn't mind how loud I crank it, ha.

    Toby Keith is my absolute favorite country performer, saw him in concert twice in 2001. The first time was the Saturday night before 9/11, when we all thought things were normal , but the 2nd one was in the beginning of October, and we got to hear live versions of Courtesy of the RW&B, and the Taliban song, long before they were actually recorded and released. They were both awesome concerts!

    The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is at the very top of my list too, but not everyone considers them country. We saw them live during their 30th anniverary tour in a very small venue, couldn't have been better!

    There are lots of others I like too, but very few are pre-1986 artists, hard to shake those rock roots!

    I grew up on country and still listen to it. Knew everything from Tammy Wynette, Lynn Anderson, Hank Snow and the like . . . . through Barbara Mandrell, Kenny Rogers, Alabama . . . . on to Dixie Chicks, Patty Loveless, Garth, Reba, Trisha Yearwood, Diamond Rio, George Strait, and now even the new stuff although maybe not quite as much. I really like just about all kinds of music (not gansta rap) but otherwise....

    Country has changed but no more or less than Rock and Roll has. Just progressed in it's sound. A lot of the 'rock' bands I listened to in the 70's probably would have been considered country if they came out today (Bread, Seals and Crofts, and possibly even the Eagles-hard to say).

    In regard to the Dixie chicks, I'm glad to see that some people out there still respect the right of everyone to have Freedom of Speech. They spoke their mind, that's it. I think some radio stations just overreacted

    I know a guy that may appeal to you. Brad Paisley. Great traditional type artist and I really love his funny song Celebrity. But overall, his sound is much older. I have a few of his CD's and simply love them.

    Point taken. But our local market as we discussed in the AI thread, is small. The fact we are in southern Utah may have something to do with it. Here in Cedar City, our radio is from St. George which is 50 miles south of us. Our town is just too small to have it's own.

    When the Chicks went out on tour here in the states after Natalie's comments in France, they made a big deal on the news about how people were still smashing their CD's and returning their concert tickets. I can't remember where I heard this, but for every 100 tickets returned 400 people wanted to buy them.

    It down right pisses me off that a few complainers can out number those of us that want them played on our radio. I have never understand that. A few vocal activists can influence beyond comprehesion. The sad fact is people like me don't call enough or complain enough about the other side of the coin thinking.

    You and I are a lot alike. I listen and love the country music, but find I go to the classic rock channel when I want to ROCK! Mainly depends on my mood I guess.

    Our classic rock channel here is called The Hawk and it is the best I have heard in a very long time. And I am referencing 103.5 the Fox in Denver and KKLZ in Las Vegas. Last 25 years for classic rock those were the two choices I had before moving here. But our local station will play tracks from albums that you NEVER hear on those big market stations. Example. If they want to play STYX... we may hear The Crystal Ball instead of Come Sail Away everytime. REO Speedwagon's In Your Letter rather than Riding The Storm Out everytime. Ted Nugent's Stranglehold (a personal favorite) rather than Cat Scratch Fever everytime.... you get the idea. They know the meaning of VARIETY and this station is down right kick ass. They will play a band like The Babies that I never heard in Vegas. I could go on and on about praising this station but wrong thread.

    Yep, I was guessing that our ages were close enough to relate!

    Our classic rock station is called The Eagle, lol. Been without one for a long time until the Eagle came. Great station but could be way better, way too traditional, the opposite of yours. Still happy to have it though! I know virtually nothing about rock after 1990, tried to do your 75 band pic thread, but mine were either taken, or I was clueless.

    In order to stay with the thread, here are my other fave country artists:
    in no particular order,
    Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Chris LeDoux, Clint Black, George Strait, Travis Tritt, Brooks & Dunn, Trace Adkins, Reba Mac, Martina Mac, Dixie Chicks (my blond haired, blue eye'd dog is named for them, lol) Tanya Tucker, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, early Garth Brooks, Montgomery Gentry, the Judds, and on and on.

    Sssshhh. Let's not give our ages away.

    Your list is great and I have CD's from all of those additions. Other artists in the collection include Aaron Tippon, BlackHawk (really a fav I forgot) Sammy Kershaw, Pam Tillis, Vince Gill, Tracy Laurence, Tracy Bryd (love his funny songs) and I even have Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Allison Kraus and Union Station and some Hank. My list could go on as well.

    EDIT: BTW: I forgot to mention that the 75 band thread was not mine. I just had a lot of fun with it. TDK got mad at me for being too excited with it and double posting.

    The only country I listen to is Hank Williams III.

    Country music IMO, is terrible. I somehow got turned on to III because I'm a fan of some of his other projects such as Superjoint Ritual and Arson Anthem.
