I admit it I like County music.
Sugarland Lady Antebellum Brad Pasiley etc Just bought a CD by a girl called Jana Kramer well worth a listen
start at the beginning - you can't beat Hank Williams - some great new unreleased recordings have been unearthed of radio shows he did on 2 3 disc sets. worth every penny

Lady Antebellum and I have a bit of a love affair going on at the moment SF...
"Listen to the stories, man. These cats really know how to tell a story."
Ornithology is one of the few bebop tunes I can actually whistle, and Wichita Lineman is probably the most perfect song every written
This is my current favourite version. The album is vinyl only and not cheap!
and there is this
Can I have that bass?
I got money. Honest!
Please never listen to REM's version!
I could arrange a song better than that!
Really dont your ears will bleed.
Its a carry over from my parents who brought me up on the more traditional country and Western so yes Hank Williams etc got me started but I think the development away from Country & Western to simple Country has helped to widen the appeal.
Alan jacksons "Where were you" the best tribute song
I'm a closet cowgirl too. My dad listened to a lot of country (although mum called it the-electric-fire-fell-into-the-bath-and-killed-my-granny music).
Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is awesome.
Ah yes Muttley "The Blues Brothers"
I hate that bloody movie.
Oh yes it helped put back in the mind of the "general public" many acts they had "forgotten" but it mostly took their music and went off and made more money with it than they did.
Same old same old.
That and the fact it gave middle age suburban men an excuse to inflict their terrible dancing on an unsuspecting public.
Which of course brings us to line dancing...i think i am going to be sick
I'm quite broad minded. I like both kinds of music, Country AND Western.
Blue Brothers? Best music film ever.
Have heard the Civil Wars Good stuff, would also recommend Luke Bryan, Diereks Bently, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert to pass a few hours.
Sadly CMT is no longer available via the UK satalite systems so there is a real lack of knowledge about the newer stuff
got a bit of Alan Jackson too Slowfoot!-, but don't know loads of the newer acts
