    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.

    For rockabilly Southern Culture on the Skids is a good choice.

    I know he's on the fringe of true rockabilly, but there's some pretty good Mojo Nixon stuff.

    Would make sweet passionate love with her. At least twice.

    Neko Case baked me cookies once (not euphemism).

    Nice to see I'm not the only person on SF to have love for Mojo.

    The new Bonnie "Prince" Billy fits right in here, as well.

    Likewise. I can't say I know his stuff comprehensively, but everything I've heard I've liked.

    Country music = No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No.

    I just can't get into any of it.

    Maybe Elvis's rockabilly or Dwight Yoakam or something like that...

    I don't understand this, Dwight Yoakam is very twangy and crooney. If you can handle Dwight you can listen to a lot of other country music. The Bakersfield sound is probably more "country" sounding than a lot of the artists that have been mentioned so far.

    Granted, I've only heard a couple of his songs but there's something rockin' in his music (to me, anyway).

    This I can stand. Not sure why. His stuff seems to rock a little bit and the lyrics aren't completely ignorant.
    This is country but you don't like it? Shi$ don't compute bro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bxfgk...eature=related
    This makes me want to shoot myself, and my dog. and my grandmother, with a broken heart, because she left me, in the rain, in my pick up truck, at night, it's dusty, my wranglers, my stoopid hat, my cowboy boots.... I've given Country my best effort but I just can't seem to get it.

    Its more roots, and sort of early country music... but I really dig a lot of Jimmie Rodgers' yodels:

    I hate America and want it to fail. I hate America and all it stands for. I hate America I hate America I hate America voting Obama was too milquetoast to hate America so I voted Green. I hate America I hate America.

    I've given Country my best effort but I just can't seem to get it. Maybe it is because I hate America.

    Country music's O.K. I really only like the older stuff - it just sounds more "real".

    One of my proudest country music moments was seeing Lynrd Skynrd open up for Hank Williams Jr. at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo back in 1994.
