Ironically, I actively hate 99% of all popular country, i.e. Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Jason Aldean, etc....it's some of the most derivative, corny shit I've ever heard in my life.

+1, esp. your second statement.

I agree with you here, with the exception of Alan J. His stuff is pure (neo) traditional country music. Pop country is a musical abomination, and most of the stuff on the radio now is pop country, but I can't fathom including Alan Jackson in that category.

Decoration Day and Dirty South are alt-country masterpieces. I wish Isbell would rejoin the band so they would start playing the songs he wrote again. I never get to hear most of my favorite DBT songs live because they won't play the stuff he wrote.

I saw him open for Alan Jackson once. That was an awesome show. Junior was just insane to watch on the steel guitar.

I like Carrie Underwood.

Not her music.

Get this song off iTunes, such a great one done in the studio.

Really sums up Country ethos.

Can early Little Feat be considered country music?

+1 on the pop country hate.

Man I love me some country. Grew up listening to great old country (and a little modern)
Emmy Lou Harris
loretta lynn,
Dolly Parton
Hank Williams, Jr.,
Johnny Cash,
George Jones,
Willie Nelson,
Hoyt Axton
Dwight Yokoam
Ernest Tubb
and so on... Really there are so many great old country acts, its hard to list them all.

In the realm of country rockabilly Rhonda Jackson and Link Ray come to mind.
