Country Gold.

"I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die"

GREATEST line in Music History.

Country Music has it's place. I am certainly not a big fan, but I've done three things that have brought me around to it and made me understand it's appeal.

1) Attended a Garth Brooks concert with my the wifes friends. Not sure I liked the music a whole lot (not all of it anyway) but the energy was outstanding and the people loved it.

2) Several times I've had Beers with my neighbors who are as country as out door toilets. Listen to the music with fans who personify it's lackadaisical what may come attitude and you'll be charmed by it's Twang.

3) The story telling is second to none. Straight to the point with humour and levity that will at least make an open minded person comprehend,
