Texaswoody there will never be another Elvis. I remember when he released his first recordings. Every guy around was ordering a cheap "Gene Autry" guitar and growing side burns. Don't ask me how I know all this TWW. Everyone was looking at Tennessee highway maps? Where the Hell is Memphis any way?

What constitutes classic country? Is it limited to time period, artists, or just great songs? What are the rules?

now this is strictly my opinion on what i classify as classic country.

the time period is one thing but, with certain artists, like George Strait, Alan Jackson and others like them, the time period even moves into the modern and current times. some become classic simply becasue of popularity and what emotions the bring to the listener, like Hank Jr. a great song can move it into the status of classic country as well.

so IMO, there isn't really any hard set rules and everyone will have their own interpretation as to what classifies music into classic country for them.

some artists by the passage of time are pretty much generally classified as classic country like, Patsy Cline, Hank Sr., Loretta Lynn, Bob Wills, Merle Haggard, and the list goes on and on.

some that many now classify as classic country, never even had a lot of top hits or even a lot of songs, and some didn't perform for very long either to begin with.

it's pretty much a subjective thing, an what classic country means to you, might be different to me. sometimes this can be contributed to difference in generations and what we grew up listening to on the radio and what others around us listened to.

hope this helps.
