    One of my favorite genres of music for sure (except for this fu*king pop-country bullshit you hear on the damned radio all the fuc*ing time, shit that would make Hank throw his fu*king guts up).

    Such great poetry at times and its just good fun to listen to it.

    Has Hank III written or performed a bad song? The answer is no. This song reminds me of early last summer...good times. "Not Everybody Likes Us". with lyrics like "I think I'd rather meet the barrel...of loaded, double barrel shotgun...than to hear that shit, they call pop country music...on 98.1" and "Kid Rock don't come from where I come from...yeah its true he's a yank...he ain't no son of Hank...and if you thought so goddamn your fucking dumb" how can you not like it?

    Just heard a song from Two Nice Ladies I Spent my Last $10.00 (On Birth Control and Beer), "my life was so much simpler when I was sober...and queer."

    Yes, there have been past threads. Billie Jo S. started off LK's I think (Spears, not Shaver).....

    I do like country music--unironically, I might add.

    However, most new country music makes me want to become a terrorist.

    The Rube digs the blues.

    I just don't like to hear someone droning (or, more accurately, twanging) on about losing his girl, his trailer house, his pickup truck and his dog.

    My musical priorities are: jazz (mostly 1950s and 1960s) and rock (mostly 1970s). I've never been able to get into country music. Just not my style, I guess.

    But I'm familiar with the first generation of country-rock artists -- Flying Burrito Brothers, early Poco, NRPS, etc. -- because my older brother listened to them a lot when I was growing up.

    For my money you can't do any better than Alan J.

    Despite being a Dawg fan, I knew you was legit.

    You coming to the meetup?
