i got into country a few years back in my late twenties. there is good and bad to that. the bad....i have been on a learning curve ever since! the good.....its all new to me!

the first country i could tolerate was hank sr and johnny cash. i was a straight up rock and hip hop guy for all my young years.

i'm so glad i started w/classic country. pop country of today makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

just discovering the "bakersfield sound" lately.

i grew up on some of the old country from my father. he loved Patsy Cline, Willie and Waylon, Hank Sr. and many others. in the mid 1970's i moved more into rock because i was becoming a teenager and it seemed like the thing to do! i didn't really get back into country until about the late 1980's. and because of George Strait and other like him, they were taking country music back to it's roots. a lot of the music of the late 1970's and early 1980's that was called country was good music, but really more pop than country to me.

today, i do listen to mostly country and prefer more traditional country when i listen to it. i can appreciate many genres of music, but country is where my heart is at.

gotta do the teenage rebel thing. i still love rock and hip hop and everything in between. but i think i am a bit different from you in that i am a rock n roll guy at my roots....

country and other mellow music has become more frequent in my middle years. but i still roll down the truck windows and play my rebellious rock and rap music way too loud sometimes....of course i'm known to do the same with my classic country as well....

Willie Nelson. Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain. one of my favorites of his.

Willie is definately a true country legend.

Country music is from the traditions of the Scotch-Irish over the mountain people who settled the Appalachian country. Bill Monroe was the first to save these stories in song from the British Isles. Blue Grass is the true parent of all country music.

Oh yes, Bob Wills and Woody Guthrie and the Stanley Brothers the list is long. If you like Bluegrass the movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" a spoof on the Greek tragedy "Ulysses" is fun.
