Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 24, 2016, 07:52:51 PMYes, I'd say enough twang to be considered country, though it's probably more properly categorized as country rock, but so is The Devil Went Down To Georgia, for that matter. You know the spirit of country music when it's there though. I love when I can actually hear different regional accents and dialects in the singing. Just the way certain words are pronounced often gives me a big thrill. Like when Strait sings "somewhere along the way" he emphasizes the H in where but then does the same thing on way where there is no H. I love that shit!
Quote from: 21st Century Man on March 25, 2016, 03:23:42 AMI'm not really into country. I hate the new stuff. I love rockabilly and the Sun sound and I also love cowboy songs. Charlie Daniels is good. This is not necessarily my favorite but one of them.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50_iRIcxsz0
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 25, 2016, 03:28:02 AMWeird. Based on your musical preferences so far I would've thought you were.
Quote from: 21st Century Man on March 25, 2016, 03:36:12 AMI've warmed up to a lot of it as I've gotten older...the nostalgia factor setting in. I always thought a lot of it was hokey when I was younger. I was always more rock and roll.

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 25, 2016, 03:52:00 AMThat was my progression too. Never liked it as a kid. Thought it was hokey. I guess somethings are only made for adults though. I don't live on a big diet of it but I do have a much greater appreciation for it now. I'm also not as crazy about a lot of the newer stuff.
Quote from: akwilly on March 25, 2016, 05:04:41 AMhis song North to Alaska is a big part of why I am here. Not that its a great tune but because of the situation I was in when I heard it.
Quote from: 21st Century Man on March 25, 2016, 05:20:24 PMTruth be told, all my uncles on my Moms side played in country bands up in Jackson, TN and I do tend to like a southern flavor in rock and roll. I just never appreciated pure country until I reached 40. We'd go up to visit my uncles and I would always play Beatles , Cars and lots of new wave music. My wife loves country and she wears down cd's of Patsy Cline. She used to be a metal-head (Iron Maiden, Ozzy, Judas Priest) but her tastes changed in accordance with her religious values. She still loves Pink Floyd though and other classic rock music.
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on March 25, 2016, 05:31:38 PMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GvD_NQrLFoI was into most of that stuff too except the metal. I always liked a song here or there but never went for the genre as a whole in a big way. I was more into the hard rock that inspired heavy metal. My mom was always a big country fan though. I used to roll my eyes at it and make fun but I guess it came on in anyway and sat a spell BTW, I think I heard you mention new wave before. Did you ever hear Elvis Costello's country album:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znhedfGFc8gAlways loved this guys delivery! Truly, one of my all time favorite artists
Quote from: 21st Century Man on March 25, 2016, 05:29:40 PMI absolutely love Johnny Horton. He may be my favorite country artist. Marty Robbins is also great.

Quote from: albrecht on March 25, 2016, 08:42:22 PMEspecially the lyrics about "she [mama] don't understand why they keep showing my hands and not my face on TV." I also recalled hearing there was some contract dispute about that, but I guess it was just the decision of editors. Besides just the awesome fun of the show they also frequently featured great country singers often 'caught in a speed-trap' who would perform a song later in the show, usually at the "Boar's Nest" including:Hoyt AxtonDonna FargoFreddy FenderDoug Kershaw (on the original soundtrack)The Oak Ridge Boys (twice)Roy OrbisonBuck OwensJohnny Paycheck (lip-syncing an original recording)Mel TillisDottie WestTammy WynetteWaylon Jennings
Quote from: 21st Century Man on March 25, 2016, 05:20:24 PMAlso, I have gotten into more roots-oriented music as I've gotten older. I like the Carter family, Jimmie Rodgers and I do love Hank Williams now. I like some of Kenny Rogers stuff before he went sappy. Never was a big fan of George Jones though now I particularly like the stuff he did early on that flirted with rockabilly. White Lightning comes to mind.

Quote from: 21st Century Man on March 25, 2016, 05:41:12 PMI always rolled my eyes too. LOL. Yeah, I have that cd. I love a lot of Costello's stuff. You played a Byrd's country song earlier. I like this one.
