I agree with etcetc. The country of today is mostly just so simplistic lyrically. I like a little bit of old country. To me, the problem is that you hardly ever hear them sing about anything other than themselves, or their lives. I never hear them sing about anything interesting. If it's not about them, and their own life, it's about their relationship with God or something. I travel all over the country and virtually every modern day country station I happen upon, is usually somebody talking about how hard life is. I guess some people might think that way, and it's hard to judge them, because their life might be extremely difficult. I mean, if that's where you are in your life, and you want to hear a guy sing about goin' out and gettin' drunk on the weekends, then fine. It's just not my cup of tea.

I like Country music. I never used to, but then one day I did...it was weird.
However (and I must post this little caveat), I don't like all Country. A lot of the stuff being released today is pop-garbage in my opinion. Also, some of the really old stuff can get tiring.
Basically the stuff I like is the stuff that can be found on Sirius's "Outlaw Country" station. You can get everything from George Jones to Bob Dylan to Lynyrd Skynyrd, and so on. That's the sort of Country I like.

'There's a tear in my beer........and my dad thinks I'm a queer'. I'll sound like a real a.ss, but I just dislike the culture around country music. I hate all the self-loathing, feeling sorry for yourself side of it. I'm a truck driver, and so I meet quite a few people who like country music, and god love them, they take care of their family and what not, but at some point they always go back to this victim mentality of, 'oh I'm a poor white man, everyone's so against me, life is so hard' Well, life is what you make it, so if you like country music, you're inherently making your life worse, just because the majority of it does seem to talk about how life sucks. I say majority, which would mean over 50% I have no facts to back that up, but I will say that the other day I was in a truck stop, and I heard 3 consecutive country songs, that talked about drinking beer, and life sucks.

I had to ask my boss to turn it off, and I ended up getting fired. But I'm happy I did becuase I don't have to listen to country anymore.

IDK I think it was the other way around. It was influenced by pop music.

I like every style of music cause music has great influence on me.

I just had a discussion with a friend about how we've noticed that music has changed everything about our person. I can see an obvious difference in how I think and sleep and hear sounds and the things that I choose to notice visually. I feel I've become more distant yet more perceptive. I hear things in music I would have never heard a year ago and I experience things differently.

I haven't tried any new drugs in a couple years, so I doubt it's that.. I really just think that I've expanded my musical preferences to include a lot more abstract, conceptual music and it's altered me. I really like it though. Hmm..

If I seem scattered it's because this realization has freaked me out haha.

Sure, same boat - I like country, I just don't like post Alabama / Randy Travis country. I did grow up listening to country in the 70's & early 80's due to my folks - we were in South Carolina after all, so that helped keep my interest.

I like the more 'outlaw' variety though, Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams, etc. I don't care too much for altcountry, it just too often sounds contrived.

As for bluegrass - yes, I like the old time variety but not the modern hippy variety.
