Does anyone still enjoy the tunes of Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Hank Jr. or Sr., Conway Twitty, George Jones, etc.? I love popping in a CD, turning up some classics and tossing a couple back.

Who's your favorite? I think I might have to go with Merle.

Taylor Swift.

Don't really like her singing (not a fan of country, but she does have a nice voice) but she's fun to look at.

All the above except the Dixie Chicks.

I also like the females: Loretta, Tammy, and Patsy.

Not classic but I like some Western/Outlaw Country: David Alan Coe, Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson.

My Jeep will not run unless there is some Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, or Don Williams coming through my speakers.


True story.

Edit - though I can substitute some awesome trucker songs like C.W. McCall, Dave Dudley, Junior Brown & Red Simpson.

Patti Page is a distant relative of mine, third cousin or something like that. I don't listen to much country music but I remember hearing a bunch back in the '70's when I was a kid.

ETA: I'd have to vote for Waylon Jennings.

I don't see it as "classic country," just plain "country." Ninety-nine percent of the stuff they play on the "country" stations nowadays is anything but. It's just pop music - Rascall Flatts, Kenny Chesney, etc. Hence, it's just "country" in my book.


Sorry for going off topic.

Truth, I don't listen to any modern music really.

I like a lot of old country music but if I had to pick a couple favorites they would be Johnny Cash and George Jones.

That's the "Voice" Vern Gosdin. "Chiseled In Stone" is one of the saddest songs of all time.

Does Cash even count as country music? To me, he seems to transcend country and is kind of his own genre.
