      Country is just like any other kind of musical genre, it has its good artists and its shitty artists

        For me, yes it is. Whatever country music I listen to, it's eh. For example, I go to this Dollar store (Dollarama) and all they ever play is country. It gives me a headache and it's soo boring to even be there. One time I spent around 45 minutes in there. Jeez...

          The way I see it, Country is Rock's redneck cousin. There is some good Country out there like Toby Keith, Dwight Yoakam, Kentucky Headhunters, Cledus T Judd, and Johnny Cash.

            True dat.

            Country's always been one of my favorite genres for some reason. Needless to say, I've gotten a lot of looks.

                I like country in small doses and generally the more upbeat songs. Many country songs on a nice stereo system have lots of low bass and an overall good sound. It really just comes down to the song. I do like many early 80s country songs.

                Here's a few.

                Wow the momories these songs bring back.

                      The problem with country is that so much of it sounds the same. Every country singer seems to have the same voice, it's even more generic that death metal is. (and that's saying something)

                        Fade to bluegrass is a good album.

                          I have a problem with the mainstream country that's really leaning more towards pop or "I'M AN AMERICUN" sounding stuff.


                          Country, folk, bluegrass...
                          That's good stuff.

                          And I hate it when people say "I hate all country except Johnny Cash."

                          yes i agree. and and just to clear things up, i was using johnny cash as an example of good country music, but not necessarily the only good one

                            He's my favorite country artist, that's for sure.

                            I mean, of course the stuff they play on the radio sucks... its made for the dumbest possible audience and to be played in the background of their miserable fucking lives.

                            Is Old Crow considered country? I think of them as being more of a string band.

                            I mean, look at the difference between Johnny Cash and those dickheads Rascal Flatts. One is indescribably awesome, the other deserves to be lined up and shot.

                            Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson and, my personal favorite David Allan Coe are good people to listen to if you want to hear country music that isn't for retards.

                            Well, David Allan Coe made some dumbass songs, but I love them.

                                  I love old country (Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, etc). Everything on the radio now is garbage, in my opinion. However, if you look outside of the mainstream there are still a number of artists (Hank III, Wayne Hancock, Those Poor Bastards) who are extremely good.

                                      Some of it's actually quite good. Some of my favorite artists include: Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, and Alan Jackson. If more people listened to country, they may start to appreciate it more.

                                        SOAD? Are you referring to System of a Down? If so, they're not "grunge".

                                          I don't care for today's Country music. I like to listen to Classic Country from artists like Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Jerry Reed, and more of the humerous kind from Ray Stevens, Homer & Jethro, and Jim Stafford.
