Ok...right off the bat...I can't STAND modern so called country music! I DETEST it with a passion! But old time country,bluegrass,and alot of country even into the 70's I enjoyed. Here are more han a few favorites...

.HANK SNOW-A Canadian! Yup. Didn't know that,eh?
.HANK WILLIAMS SR.- His kid comes across as a whiny ass phoney. The real McCoy here!
.PATSY CLINE-I love her. I woulda married this lady...if I had been born,and worthy.
.the OSBOURNE BROS.-No relation to Ozzy. Bluegrass kings.
.JIMMY RODGERS_T for Texas....the Grandpa of modern C+W.
.LORETTA LYNN- This women is an icon. She lived what she sang. No Phoney Chicago, media hyped,American Idol BS here...this woman IS country!

Back when I was a kid...my Dad watched the GREEN VALLY JAMBOREE broadcast outta Decater,Mich.....about 7 miles from Lawton...wether I liked it or not...it has a hold and formed who I am today. I may listen to punk and metal...but I also listen to the old hillbilly (NOT COUNTRY) music of my youth. I live in the boonies...it's a part of who I am.

Loretta Lynn...Everybodys Somebodys Fool

I'm with you, RC.  What passes as country in Nashville these days is just pop music with steel guitars.  I like the real stuff from the 1930s-1970s, plus a lot of the current independent alt-country bands that mix rock and country. 

Favorites: Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe, The Cowboy Junkies, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Drive-By Truckers.

I do enjoy Lynard Skynard and The Allman Brothers, Johnny Cash is pretty good as well, other than that I don't really listen to country.

"Country music" of today is more wretched than "Pop."  I agree Bela that old real Country was great.  HANK WILLIAMS is one of my favorites in any genre.  I also love BOB WILLS & HIS TEXAS PLAYBOYS, and THE CARTER FAMILY (this clip is a later incarnation fronted by MAYBELLE; JUNE is missing, ALVIN and SARAH were long gone from the group):

I only listen to Country music when it's played BACKWARDS, that way your girl comes back, your dog comes back home, the bank gives you a trailer, your truck gets fixed, your kids get out of jail, , ,,

While I agree overall that modern country music is a pale shadow of itself, there are a few that harken back to the golden age, in overall attitude if not in sound. Randy Travis has the voice of a country star of yesteryear, and Travis Tritt has the attitude of an old timer country star.

Could somebody clarify what exactly their definition of country is?
I know its not the modern crap, but i was always under the impression that bands like Lynrd Skinard and the Allman Brothers were southern rock and not really true country.
Personally I think Johhny Cash or Arlo Guthrie would be the best. But if you include the southern rock groups I'd also add Lynrd Skynard and the allman brothers

LYNYRD SKYNYRD and ALLMAN BROTHERS were great, and I agree they're best described as "Southern Rock."   I'd probably call ARLO GUTHRIE Folk, but he's apparently ventured into many types of music (I don't listen to him). 

I like Dolly Parton  TongueOut
DOLLY PARTON is a great singer/songwriter, an important Country artist, who has produced many highly regarded and high selling records.  Though I really like DOLLY, I don't listen to her, either.   Smile

Thanks that's kinda what I thought. My mistake putting arlo guthrie down, he really was a folk musician, i just got distracted.

Found some footage of HANK WILLIAMS.  This great clip has two songs, HANK followed by HANK and ANITA CARTER singing "I Can't Help It" (probably my favorite HANK song):

Today's country music is manipulative drivel written to push people's buttons by playing to patriotism, religion, the undeniable superiority of simple country folk, etc. There was always some of that, but it has never been done in such a hamfisted fashion. And country has gone pop. It's gotten glamorous.

Growing up, my parents were big fans of Hee-Haw. They had records and later cassettes of Hank Williams, Charley Pride, The Statler Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys and so forth. Some of that rubbed off on me, although not until later. I got into country in the early 90s, by way of southern rock. Then I got into all of the "new" country that was coming out in the early 90s, at a time when rock and pop were offering nothing I wanted. Travis Tritt, Marty Stewart, Doug Stone, Vince Gill, Brooks & Dunn, Joe Diffy. Those guys and others were offering music that was fun and clever at a time when the choice seemed to be between dreary "alternative" music and mindless dance beats. From there, I graduated to Hank Jr., Waylon Jennings, Jerry Reed, and started to dig into those old memories of my parents' music.

My friends and I also became huge fans of Canadian country legend Stompin' Tom Connors, so named because he stomps his boot to keep time, which has destroyed many a sheet of plywood over the years. This is a rough old guy who launched his career by running away in his teens and hitting the road with a guitar on his back, hitching rides, playing bars and working odd jobs for years before he made a name for himself. He's travelled all over Canada and written loads of songs about people and places, history, legends, politics and everyday stuff. It's fun music, with a lot of humour, and in many cases, a lot of substance too. He's a big supporter of Canadian artists. In the 70s, he gave back his Juno awards (like the Canadian Grammy) and retired in protest at the lack of opportunity for Canadian musicians to find success without leaving their country. He came back in the late 80s, at just the right time for us. I own a bunch of his albums, I've seen him play live on two occasions, and I almost got to interview him once, except that he had contractual obligations that prevented it at the time. His fans come in all ages. My grandmother used to like his music. When I was in elementary school, some of his songs were used to teach history. In discussions of great Canadians, he's included along with scientists, statesmen and heroes.

And here are just a few of his tunes:
