Meat Puppets is about the closest I get...
someone else said it's all about the "twang"...
I hate the twang.

Some of the purest old country makes me laugh. A lot of it was so shocking back then. Killing people, stealing and cheating and SEX!!!! Loretta Lynn singing about "the pill" and songs about "love to lay you down." Wonder if that was as eye popping as today's rap and hip/hop is to me today?

When I was like 7 I really liked Red Hot Chili Peppers, and thought they were country for some reason, so in that sense I used to like country, now I can't tolerate it.

The Problem is, most country played on "over the air radio stations" is pop-country. You don't feel the music after its been glossed over, and packaged to not offend. Country music is supposed to offend, supposed to tug at your heart strings and supposed to make you feel like you're down there with the singer.

Check out Corey Smith, Drive By Truckers, Blackberry Smoke and others. You'll see why people like country music.... If only more radio stations would play country music

the greatest country songs are the ones that take you back to the things you once loved but have since diminished. i like a good dramatic country song, but in my eyes, i want to listen to it a lot more when it makes me reminisce to some comparable memory. that being said, i still love ryan adams' music despite not relating to a lot o' it.

My parents and a lot of people I know listen to country, and I can tell you first hand that its not for people like us. Its for the casual listener who just wants a nice beat and conservative lyrics. At least thats why most of my family likes it...(except me and my bro)

I like it because it talks about life in simple terms - love, hapiness, sadness, etc... I grew up in Texas, and learned to like a lot of country music.
