Someone please enlighten me as to what the hell is going on in country music these days. It seems that no matter when I turn on the radio my choices are rap or crappy contemporary country music ie. She thinks my tractor's sexy, Day one, etc. It seems that this particular genre has gone from guys like Jonny Cash, David Allen Coe, and of course Hank (Sr. and Jr.) to pinko commie butt wipes singing about things that have absolutely no bearing on rural life and calling it "country". When did this happen? Why did this happen?

Lite Rock has taken over and is being marketed as Country music. Real country misic died when Reba McIntyre opened her dicksucker and started making noise into a microphone.

The Nashville Music industry is targeting itself towards the 15 to 38 year old female crowd. Remember when Johnny Cash came out with American Recording the country radio station wouldn't play it. This was his response in a full page magazine ad.

I don't know. I grew up listening to Country, but I gave up on it when Achy Breaky Heart and Boot Scootin' Boogie were all they played on the radio. Give me Kenny Rogers, The Bellamy Brothers, Alabama, Randy Travis, and Charlie Pride please.

I believe it's "commie pinko" and not the other way around.

I would suggest listening to your own CDs.

I have never been a big country fan, and most of it has always been crap, IMO. The ones I like are the ones that are more rock and blues influenced. I do like Willie and Johnny OK.

On a happier note, bluegrass appears to be more popular than ever. And the new bluegrass people do TRUE bluegrass. Allison Kraus, uh... can't think of any others...

But at least it isn't the pop music with fiddles that "country" has become...

A bigger question is what happened to rock and roll?

Seems like everyone producing today needs to be no lithium- everyone with these "socially concious" songs that are just boreing depressing whining...

i'm with you. one of the several thousand new country songs that i cannot fucking stand. the channel gets immediately changed.

Don't listen to "Contempary Country" radio.

Go buy some Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, David Allen Coe, Waylon Jennings, Charlie Pride, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson, Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr, Charlie Daniels and Alabama CDs. Listen to that.

What happened to country radio? Nashville.

There are very few good modern country bands. I enjoy Cross Canadian Ragweed, but their songs do blur the line between "Country" and "Southern Rock." Much the way Lynyrd Skynyrd did, but with more emphasis on the "Texas Country" than on "Southern Rock."

Modern "country" and modern "rock" and "alternative rock" is the reason I don't hardly listen to anything but "Classic Rock" and "Country Gold."

Pretty much the only thing I listen to besides that is Metallica, Cross Candian Ragweed, the Kyle Bennet Band.

I read somewhere that Tim McGraw said, "I will not have my music limited by the hat I wear." Let's face it, this guy's greatest hit was nailing Faith Hill...and that ain't all that great.

I don't really care for most of his music that much. Maybe it's just 'Way down Yonder on the Chattahoochee' that I can't stand. Mainly because he's from my hometown, and his stuff got played to death when he hit it big.

That song about buying a Mercury is pretty catchy.

Google "No Depression". It seems like folks who fall under that genre are doing good country music.

Of course you won't get any nifty sounding hooks or big names, but the music stands up all by itself.

I tried listening to country music, but it is just like pop/ top 40 music.

Jerry Jeff Walker has a nice house in Central America. I have been on the property but not inside.

Damn good question. My grand father used to drive me around south Lousianna and we would listen to old timey country and what some might call blue grass. Real old stuff. I only listen to old stuff now and I am forty. In the truck I have Waylon, Loretta and Conway, and a "country greats" compilation with old stuff from Tammy wynette, Tanya Tucker, etc.

I saw some pole smoker pretty boy on CMT the other night and he was acting like a wigger and hoping around, but he had a cowboy hat on, so he must have been singing country. The media and record companies sell use pretty faces without talent as they think we will not buy records from fat hairy women with great voices or stupid looking men with a hell of a picking ability. And we the public lap it up, or at least some folks do.

He stopped loving her today.....
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 2:13:47 PM EDT
I don't listen to country but I stumbled upon the country music channel a few weeks ago. At first I though I was on BET, because there were a bunch of scantily clad women shaking their ass in a "club". Then I noticed that the guy "singing" had a cowboy hat on. I believe the song was "girls gone wild" or something to that effect.
