 That's right...country music. I can't STAND what passes for "country music" nowadays, I prefer the old-time "hillbilly" music , not this phoney pop pap that passes for it nowadays. Some favorites...
Bluegrass-I like all sortsa bluegrass-they have a good radio show on Sundays around here called "Grass Roots" that I like to relax to sometimes. Like the Osbourne Bros. ,Flatt and Scruggs, etc...
.Hank Williams Sr.-of course.
.Loretta Lynn
.Patsy Cline
.Hank Snow
.Granpa Jones!!! (Chewing gum chewing gum chewing gum... Smile)

  The Osbourne Bros.-Ruby-

I couldn't agree more!  You should have seen the looks I got cruising around Oakland, CA, blasting Patsy Cline from my car stereo!  TeddyR  But all genres of music are pretty much sharing the same crap pop phase at present.

There is hope, though.  Have you heard Jolie Holland?  I'm positively in love with that woman!  Her music falls between country-folk-jazz, but it's all really great stuff.  She's on the small label ANTI... doesn't get much if any radio play, but here's a live clip off YouTube:

I'm not a huge country fan, but I have a respect for the old sound.  Nowadays, everyone mainstream seems to want to sound like Garth Brooks, and I'm against homogenization in almost any form of music.

My wife is a big fan of neo-country, but I'm not a big fan.

That being said, I do love older country.  Not sure what it is about the music, but I do rather enjoy it.  Hank Williams Sr, Bellamy Brothers, David Allen Coe, Waylon Jennings, etc.  It's a huge difference from what I normally listen to but it has a sincerity that is missing from modern music.

That's how I would sum it up as well. I really don't listen to country, but when growing up I was exposed to a lot of the older stuff due to my mother liking it so much. As a result, I associate a lot of it with good memories of the past. Stuff like Marty Robbins, George Jones, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson and a slew of others.

David Allen Coe.  I listen to him sometimes and he drives my wife nuts.  She dislikes any of the older, "twangy" country music.  I don't have a problem with those at all, probably from hearing them when my dad would listen to them.

How many times has David Allen Coe said his own name in his songs, anyway?

I despise modern country, but I just love the old outlaw country singers.  Johnny Cash is among my all-time favorite artists, because of his old stuff and for his covers of modern songs too.

Well being from Kentucky and living on the Tennessee boarder with family all over each ...

There ain't but one kind of county music and that's old timey music, but around here it's bluegrass!

I'm not very familiar with the older bluegrass type of country.  But, I do like Johnny Cash and the little bit of Hank Williams I've heard. 

Of the current crop, most I don't listen to, although I do like Randy Travis, Toby Keith, and Cledus T. Judd.

My wife and daughter pretty much live on country music; I'm more eclectic. I do enjoy some of it. I love Hank Williams, Sr., Willie Nelson, Roger Miller, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Dolly Parton, and others in that ilk. In a more modern sound, I enjoy some of Randy Travis's stuff, Travis Tritt and Junior Brown (i.e., mostly artists who have retained a lot of the "old" sound). I also love bluegrass (even got to see Bill Monroe in concert when I was in grad school!), as well as pickers like Flatt & Scruggs, Roy Clark, Jerry Reed, etc.

Look up these guys ...

For old school it's Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys, Stanley Brothers, Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs with the Foggy Mountain Boys, Reno and Smiley, Lonesome Pine Fiddlers, Jim & Jesse, Jimmy Martin and the Osborne Brothers, Mac Wiseman, Mac Martin and the Dixie Travelers, Carl Story and his Rambling Mountaineers, Buzz Busby, The Lilly Brothers, Jim Eanes and Earl Taylor.

That that banjo pickin', fiddlin', ge-tar pikin', double bass thumpin', mandolin pluckin' lap harp strumin' music.

I've heard some stuff by the Stanley Brothers.  Not a lot, though.  My grandmother might have some of the people mentioned here.  She's more into the country music area than I am.

If it's good music, I'll listen to it.  I love Country staples like HANK WILLIAMS SR., JIMMIE RODGERS, PATSY CLINE, WILLIE NELSON, MERLE HAGGARD, DOLLY PARTON, LORETTA LYNN, GEORGE JONES, JOHNNY CASH...wow, there are alot of great Country artists, but not nowadays. 

THE BYRDS did an all Country album Sweetheart Of The Rodeo though not a favorite of mine, it has some fine moments and is one of the earliest appearances of GRAM PARSONS on record (still haven't picked up that Safe At Home by his INTERNATIONAL SUBMARINE BAND which was overlooked and even earlier, now back in print).   THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS are very early proponents of what came to be called "Country Rock" (but not by PARSONS, who called his recordings "Cosmic American Music".)  The Gilded Palace Of Sin is one of the best records in any genre. 

I particularly like the bluesyness of true Country,  Bluegrass, and Delta Blues.  I've long admired SKIP JAMES, recently picked up a ROBERT JOHNSON album, and finally added THE CARTER FAMILY Can The Circle Be Unbroken? to my Amazon cart.
