  • Country Music Thread

    Well, we have a rock and a rap thread so I thought we should have a country music thread.

    I have been listening to country for 25 years now. The band Alabama is what got me going on it.

    1/2 of my CD collection is country music. Garth and George are favorites and Tim McGraw and Kenney Chesney are the one's I find I listen to the most recently.

    I like the ladies in Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Martina Mcbride and of course Reba. I even still like the Dixie Chicks even though they pissed off the world with their political outspokeness. Our local country channel still does not play them. Las Vegas country station KWNR still plays them and you can catch a video now and then on CMT.

    One of the biggest thrills for country concerts was the George Strait festival in Vegas a few years back. George, Tim McGraw, Kenney Chesney, Dixie Chicks, Jo Dee Messina and Asleep At The Wheel were all there. What a fantastic show that was at a jam packed Sam Boyd Stadium.

    But the BIGGEST thrill was seeing Garth. That man knows how to put on a show. I was lucky enough to see him twice. Once at the Colorado State fair in Pueblo but it rained like hell that night. The second time, and the best one for me, was in Vegas at the Thomas and Mack which came to be his farewell tour.

              I listened to country a lot when I was growing up. But it has changed too much so I stopped listening to it.

              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.

                Give me some Garth Brooks and some Cross Canadian Ragweed anyday of the week.

                And the ladies of country aren't too hard on the eyes either to go with their great voices.

                    Randy Travis

                    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).

                              country has gotten so far from it's roots its not even funny. most of it nowadays sounds like the pop/rock stuff.
