great thread texasww!
several years back, i would not have been able to participate. in my hard core "rock n roll" youth, i completely rejected country music! thanks to a good influence in my life, i started out giving hank williams sr and johnny cash a go. since then, nothing but love for classic country.
i REALLY appreciate REAL country music. in fact, i find when i opened up to country, i opened up to many other genres of music at the same time. now, i truly love and appreciate almost every genre of music!
if someone asks me what type of music i like, i can only reply "good music!"
thanks to all who posted. i, to my shame, have not heard of a few of the artists posted here. that means i get a chance to look em up and find out if i like them!
