      I got into it a little in high school. I liked crossovers however like Shania Twain and Faith Hill.

          Country is just like any other genre of music in terms of quality, some of it is good, some of it is bad. And like any other genre, you can't rely on the radio if you want to hear the good stuff.

            The only country singer I like is John Denver. The mainstream stuff today is rednecky pop
            "durf durr" crap that all sounds the same.

              I like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Lee Hazlewood, Patsy Cline, Wanda Jackson, Jeanie C. Riley, Alison Krause and Union Station, some of Willie Nelson's stuff, The Flying Burrito Bros and some Southern Rock stuff. Some of Dolly Parton's stuff is pretty good, especially her earlier albums. The Byrds did a very good country album called Sweetheart of the Rodeo, Ween did a hilarious country album and the Who, Pete Townshend in his solo work and the Stones did a couple of good country style tracks. Pete sometimes does a country version of an early Who song, A Legal Matter during his solo shows.

              Most country stuff from the 80's onward I find pretty dire, especially the modern pop stuff. It's so hillarious when modern country acts try and update the old cliches, "My baby left me for one of my Myspace Friends."

                I personally don't care for most country music. It puts me to sleep.

                  Finally, it's about time this such topic has been made. I HATE country music.

                    I agree with Funky Guy. I'm watching "Walk the Line" as I write this and really like Johnny Cash..and many of the "old-timers". I don't listen to "new country" so I am not sure how I feel about it now.

                    Oh, and also, Funky Guy...I was at the Who's first final tour... my first concert...amazing!!

                                I Like Classic Country But The New Country Sucks. Country Was The First Genre Of Music I Ever Got Into When I Was A Kid.

                                    Ill never understand this. Every genre of music has people that like it, and people that dont like it. But why do the people that dont like it have to bash it so much? If you dont like it, thats fine, those of us that do like it are fine with it. I dont like rap music, but I am not going to start a post every few months that talks about how terrible it is. Although I have noticed that some people who say how terrible country music is give reasons that make absolutly no sense, or are stereotyped.

                                    " The last man nearly ruined this place/He didn't know what to do with it/If you think this countrys bad off now just what till I get through with it":D

                                      I guess country music is just like everything else.

                                      Some guys (and gals, of course), produced great country music.

                                      Most produce complete shit.

                                      Same can be said for every musical genre. Except techno. Its ALL awesome.

                                        Johnny Cash is pretty cool. I also like Willie Nelson.
