There may be a lot of stupid country music out there, but there's still plenty of good country music. A hell of a lot more than rap anyways.
Just vote in the poll and leave a comment if you actually have something to say.

Speaking of country... I currently am really interested in getting some music by The Wreckers (Michelle Branch's duet project). They only have clips on their myspace, but it sounds really good... it's more folky country than your typical mainstream crap.

I so predicted this post. As soon as I saw the gayass user name, I was like, "He made an obnoxious post about how much country music sucks because he's a closed-minded fag." I was right on.

I'm glad you rule out an entire genre of music solely based on what you hear on the radio and TV. And that it bothers you so much that you claim that everyone who likes it fucks his/her cousins. Everyone who likes rodney mullin fucks their uncles.

It's not that you came across as harsh... it's that you came across as stupid. You can dislike country music a lot, and let people know that, without sounding like an idiot.

Rodney Mullen (IF YOU REALLY ARE THE SKATER, THAT IS!!) the fact is that you're a prick. Now that you've been called out on it, you're getting all defensive over it. Stop being so stupid. I don't like country as a whole, either, but I can still enjoy Johnny Cash and some other single songs despite the fact they're part of a genre I don't really like.

I do enjoy the few Big & Rich songs I've heard, although I'm fully aware that in the realm of country they're rather sellout-y.

Johnny Cash is also great, but I almost wouldn't count what he does as straight country at all.

In other news, "I love this bar" is great, and country songs have the best song subjects ever.

What would you consider his music? The stuff that's popular today is what I wouldn't consider straight country.

I'm not going to lie to you - Johnny Cash was someone I was barely into before the movie, and barely into afterwards. I have friends who absolutely love him, and I get most of the vibe of his stuff from them.

Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard are the only country musicians that I really have listened to. I'm indifferent about country for the most part, with the exception of Toby Keith, whom I hate.

I've been exposed to Johnny Cash since before I can remember. He never really played a big role in my musical life, but I've yet to be disappointed by a song of his, and that's a lot of songs.

The only "real" country artist on that list is the Cash. I'm sorry, but 99% on new "country" is unlistenable to me.

Is it just me or is the only real difference between radio-country and radio-rock/pop that they're played in different keys? And the fact that every country song ever played on the radio mentions coffee or coffee cups. True story!

It's not even the key. The difference is that the singer has to sound really nasally and whiny, and you have to throw in some really shitty steel guitar noise in the background. Then your rock/pop song just became "country". There are so many "country" songs on the radio where if you stuck a different guy on lead vocals who wasn't whiny, and removed the steel guitar, it'd be an average pop/rock song.

That one Dierks Bentley song is pretty fun.

Normally I'm not a big fan of the genre. But I grew up on Roger Miller, if you can call him country. Doo-Wacka-Doo!

Cash didn't write 'Personal Jesus' or 'Hurt' :( :(?

I find it more troubling when people think that Marylin Manson did the original 'Personal Jesus'.

Seriously though, I like a lot of Johnny Cash's original stuff as well, were as most country I would prefer not to listen to.

He's who people listen to and claim they listen to "some country". It's just popular to like Johnny Cash.

Not that I have anything against him - or that I particularly feel that the others represent anything truly country, but it simply happens to be true.

Fucking trendies.
