    Too many to pick one favorite. So here's a few.

    I love me some David Alan Coe!

    I also like Waylon, George, Merle, Hank, Hank jr., and Hank 3rd, and Waylons kid Shooter and Buck.

    I'm more of a rock and roll guy but I like real country. I can't stand the new stuff except for Hank 3rd and Shooter.

    Johnny Cash should be in the "Cool Men" column, too.

    I liked the music from the 70's and 80's. Willie, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Waylon, Oak Ridge Boys, and the rest of the bunch. I'm not a big fan of the new stuff going on now and very rarely listen to any.

    We should all get punched in the sack for leaving him out.

    Country music has been dead for 20 years except for a handful of guys, most you won't hear on the radio.

    No, he had him in the "Great Duets" list. Really good thread, Shi! :)

    I had mention his name already, that is why I didn't re list George or Conway.

    How bout the ladies.

    Hey I heard a joke about Conway.
    Condensed version:


    This Insurance salesman looked just like him.

    He went to several houses and everyone thought he was Conway. He explained to them that he wasn't and tried to sell them insurance.

    At the last house he was greeted by a young 20's hottie fresh out of the shower in a towel. She said: "Oh my God it's Conway Twitty!" He said: "Hello Darlin"
