So this is a thread for the appreciation of country music. Alternately it's a chance to display your awesome condescending, threadshitting skills.


So maybe you like traditional country. Like so.

Eh? Eh?

Ahh, Patsy Cline


Or how about the 60's and 70's classics?

How about this?

Poor mama.



Maybe you like 80's and early 90's country before it started turning into pop music.
Maybe there's even a song about that!

Oh hey, liike this one.

Oh, Randy


Maybe you like the recent stuff that's still country and not some pukey pop shit.

Fuckin Youtube

Seriously. Fuck youtube



Maybe you're a terrible person and you like shit like Rascall Flatts and Sugarland.
I'm not fucking posting that shit.

Maybe you like a little rock in your country? Or some outlaw country?

Do you see what you're maing me do?

Robert Earl Keen. Hell yeah.


Maybe I'm going to put a few more videos up because I couldn't narrow the list down.

Awwww sad song

This was the best goddamned movie.
So what's up folks? Let's talk country.

Right now I'm stuck on Eric Church. I was quite amused when he was opening for Rascall Flats on their "Me and My Gang Tour" and he got kicked off the tour for, I shit you not, running over on a set and crossing a line painted on the stage that indicated how close you could be to the audiance. So he started the "Me and Myself Tour" that was just him showing up at bars.

    I couldn't find any Cross Canadian Ragweed videos that were worth a damn.

    But I should mention that tomorrow I'm going to LONESTAR JAM

    and in June I will be going to see Robert Earl Keen for the 3rd time. I missed him at Chilifest cause that faggot Pat Green played before him and I left after CCR cause I was too drunk.

    Note: All of Pat Green's good songs will be found on "Live at Billy Bob's" CD

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iulqP4xpVXw

    Got an urge for good music? Let me direct you to the finest establishment to sell these wares. No bad music to be found on this site: Lone Star Music

    I shouldn't say terrible. Hank III just irritates me for some reason and I can't hear GG Allin without thinking of what a horrible excuse for a person he was.

    Bands I'm really into that could be called country:
    The Devil Makes Three
    Pinebox Serenade
    Alejandro Escoveda
    Whiskeytown

    Bands that I'm into that would be bluegrass/folk
    The Avett Brothers (love these guys)
    Railroad Earth (fantastic, but you've probably already heard of them if you like bluegrass)
    Assembly of Dust
    Leftover Salmon
    Hot Buttered Rum String Band
    Old Crow Medicine Show
    The Waybacks

    Of these bands, the ones that I think you should check out if you haven't heard of them (and particular songs)
    The Devil Makes Three (any of their songs)
    Pinebox Serenade (Lost Pines, and although it's a departure from their sound I like Gravedigger's Blues)
    Avett Brothers (Paranoia in B Major, Die Die Die, The Weight of Lies, Shame. This list could go on and on, but those songs are good starting points)
    Railroad Earth (start with Railroad Earth)

    What are people's opinions of Garth Brooks?

    Arguably one of the most well known country musicians out there.


    My father listened to a lot of his stuff as I was growing up so much of that is stuff I was exposed to as well.

    I need to restrain myself with this thread. I grew up on country and have yet to get the bf to develop a taste for it.


    When I get married my first dance will either be I Cross My Heart or this: Keith Whitley, he died way too young.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GpXYKp7_Qw

    As hokey as it is I love this song: Garth Brooks, I've seen him more times than I can count and it was always fun.

    http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=29987601

    And this one: Randy Travis is just great, you don't see this kind of simple talent any more.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLxhbxh6kMY

    And these guys need to do a reunion tour: Alabama ended up being able to balance being incredible popular and making their music how they wanted to.

    Agreed.

    Some I really like and this is great. Other stuff...eh.

    I saw him live when he played in Central Park. His free show.

    Holy hell is that guy an entertainer/performer. His on stage charisma is off the charts.

    As classy as they come, to be honest. Interviews with him are pretty interesting. So utterly soft spoken when it comes to so many things.
