Hank Williams. There is none better.

Well, everyone seems to like Hank Sr. And George Jones.



I'd rather drink embalming fluid...And, I like Country.

I'd suggest:

BR549-Thier first album was really good, and, "Twisted in the Pines" is also good.
David Earl Keen- "A Bigger Piece Of Sky" is a great album. I suggest, alacarte

-Corpus Christie Bay
-Amarillo Highway

G. Strait is also good
-Amarillo By Morning
-Still Make Cheyenne

Ok...Damn near anything by him.

Also see if you like Jimmy Rodgers. And duh, Willie Nelson.

Old time country music's pretty good. I can't stand the modern crap that's put out. It's so corny, cheesy, contrived and formulaic.
