"I was country, when country wasn't cool"

I am sure I am in the minority here of even liking some country.
I don't care for the newer stuff prefer the 60s, 70s, early 80s stuff.

My fav country song ever is a TIE between George Jones' "He stopped loving her today" and this one

Freebird. There is none other. It's what every post Garth bumpkin has been emulating poorly since forever.

My loathing for country music has actually gotten so deep that I sometimes find it hard to listen to Skynyrd or The Allmans... and I grew up on that shit.

I don't equate Southern Rock with Country, although there is often crossover, so that's interesting.

Dude. Modern country is watered down southern rock. It's science.

I see more 70s pop/rock influence (like The Eagles, Grateful Dead, etc) in modern country than anything else, but I honestly don't listen to much modern country at all (it all sounds the same to me). Like I said, though, I prefer the older more classic stuff.

Eh. Chalk it up to seeing more than my share of shitty good ol' boy cover bands at the bars around here... I just can't stomach any of it anymore... save for Johnny Cash and a little Wille Nelson.

Picking a favorite isn't real easy since I love anything Johnny Cash.

Green green grass of home
I walk the line
Delia's Gone
Cry, Cry, Cry

Aside from Cash, I do really love King of the Road by Boxcar Wille and the occasional Jim Reeves song

I've been trying to get more into country lately. Ever since I saw Merle Haggard open up for Bob Dylan in April '05, I've slowly becoming more of a fan. I don't think I really like the new stuff much (I hear Vince Gil's new one is really good), but Waylon, Johnny, Merle and Willie are awesome.

If you want some new country, check out Wayne Hancock. In my opnion, he's one of the best out there. Hank Williams III also has some good songs...

I'm enjoying a lot of the new alt-country artists (though I hate that term almost as much as "nu-metal"). Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Ryan Adams, Hank III, Neko Case, Jenny Lewis, Jolie Holland etc

There is a brilliant band from Perth that y'all should check out: http://www.myspace.com/THEkilldevilhills

For all time best songs though you can't you past the holy trinity of Johnny Cash's "Walk the Line", Hank Williams' "I'm Lonesome I Could Cry" and Willie Nelson's "Crazy".
