Whenever Mark was over the subject of country music came up and we found that neither one of us were fans of it, I can take a *little* of some of the older or 'outlaw country' but not for too long of a period at a time ... Johnny Cash is plain cool, the newer stuff is just gawd-awful.

Seems like we don't hear of too much country around here so I wonder how many of you all listen to it?

Mark being raised in the south y'all is an expression I've heard and used all of my life but that woman Paula Dean is about to break me from it I believe, man I can't take that woman's "y'all" every other word for too long.

Jan used to say 'you'ens' or 'youse' ... maybe I'll work on it. \:D

It takes some pretty non-traditional (or extremely traditional) country for me to like it. I like bluegrass (particularly anything Bela Fleck does, which makes it Newgrass, apparently...), Dixie Chicks (at least their later stuff--hey, it's pretty...), and a lot of stuff that Lyle Lovett does. I can't stand the mass produced pop pap Nashville's been turning out over the last decade or two--and I know that Dixie Chicks account for some of that.

I like some of the old school stuff like Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Conway Twitty. Can't really say I listen to any of the new country.

Johnny Cash goes without saying.

I enjoy good singer/songwriters, and there's plenty of them in the older country, non-poppy/glitzy "New Country" genre. Merle Haggard and Guy Clark are two of them. I also enjoy Lyle Lovett. I admit I don't really look for new music to listen to in the country genre...

I really like bluegrass, too. Alison Krauss + Union Station are excellent musicians. I used to listen to Bela Fleck a lot and kinda got burned out. I wouldn't call his style exactly bluegrass, though. Seldom Scene is a local bluegrass band that put out a Grammy award-winning album last year that my wife and I really enjoy (called Scenechronized).

I also listen to some Alt. Country: Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Avett Brothers, even recent Mark Knopfler falls in this category. One of my favorite recent CDs is a soundtrack collaboration btw. Benjamin Gibbard and Jay Farrar called One Fast Move of I'm Gone.

All I can think about when I see the name Conway Twitty is how Family Guy played a large portion of this video clip in an episode -- perhaps more than one episode. \:D


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
