How do you feel about the seemingly separate musical culture of Country music?

I live up in the boonies and it seems like everyone here is obsessed with it. The radio in my pizza place is always turned to country and whenever i change it to 98 Rock someone says something. haha.

I normally wouldn't mind something like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q85rPq1u9sc

But then this crap comes on.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2KmzFABujM

And I SWEAR TO GOD I hear this song at least 3 times whenever I work.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqrogegV1lw

So what do you think, pit? Is country lame? Do you like it? Does it suck? Is it republican overly patriotic crap? Tell us.

EDIT: LOL at a comment on the last video: "is a thrue story?" classic.

Oh yeah, and inb4 searchbar, gtfo or contribute.

I'm a big fan of country music. Especially when my woman leaves me.

Let's have a conversation about Kris Kristofferson and Phil Ochs.

They rule.

Johnny Cash isn't old country. Hank Snow is old country.

Is Fleetwood mac considered country? cause they fucking rock.


I would consider them a refreshing blend of the three; blues country and rock.

Mostly blues for Nix, though.

I hate country. I like a few Johnny Cash songs, but everything else just sucks. And I don't care if I'm not supposed to criticize other people's music, I'm sorry, but country just sucks.

I like some of the singers' voices, but I don't really care for the genre all that much. Of course I love Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins.

Johnny Cash was born in 1978. He didn't begin playing country music until 1994. How is that old?

I love country music. It's the one genre that really lifts my spirits and just "speaks" to me in a way. No one can ever make me dislike it.

Johnny Cash was born in 1932. Where did you find that?

All country music is basically: I love my tractor, I love my truck, I love my baptist church, and I love my wife. In that order.

Old country music? Woody Guthrie is where it's at.

I'm a big fan of the Phil Ochs esque folk of the 1960's.

Huge fan of British Folk Punk artist Al Baker and The Dole Queue: www.myspace.com/alandhisguitar

EDIT: No messing with Bonnie Prince Billy/Palace/Will Oldham

I recorded a cover of What Are You Fighting For the other day. I don't think I'm very happy with it, though.

I mostly like the older stuff like Cash.


There are a few new artists that I can tolerate listening to, but I don't own any country albums.
#31
some is good, some is terrible and just annoying. i dont like the modern country that's more like modern-pop southern rock than country.

some of it makes for some pretty good drinking music.

Ya ok.
Actually I would say if you want to assign a major theme to any of it it's all about killing assholes.

Hank Williams should have written more songs about killing assholes. Instead of just being a cry baby all the time.

chet atkins and les paul were beasts. Though they both did have a bit of jazz influence in their playing i would still classify them as country

Brad Paisley and Keith Urban I listen to a bit, but only because they got some mad chops.

Roy Buchanan has some country influences, but I consider him a blues musicians through-and-through. John 5 plays country too, which I like better then his br00talz-shredding.

The country songs I don't like are the ones with three chords, singing about how your woman drove off with your truck and left you alone and such.

I like Hank though. He drank more than I do.

I'm a big fan of Toby Keith, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Mindy Smith, Trace Atkins....

thn there are others who are ok, or have a handful of good songs.
like Alabama, Garth Brooks.

and others are just plain terrible, like Kenny Chesney, haha.


Yeah, there are alot of cliches about country music which I think are dumb.
like all the songs that make truck or car references (one of my favorite country albums is Brad Paisley's "Mud On The Tires".
There are, I think, 7 songs that make truck or car references....)

but you can make fun of cliches in any genre
(in the 80's, how many Rock songs talked about sleeping with girls, or partying? I am not entirely fond of either* but I still love the music anyway. in fact I just saw Motley Crue last night ^.^ )


So basically, it's a genre.
It has its highs, lows, new and old. (I will admit though, Johnny Cash and Chet Atkins are what started my liking to Country)

then I found this

I was surprised to discover that he didn't write most of the lyrics to the songs I like. Like, "They'll Never Take Her Love Away From Me."

And yes he was. It's a damn shame his grandson is such a tool. Also, does anyone know where I can get Eric Stuart's records? He's the voice of Brock from Pokemon.
