I like country music for many reasons. First off I grew up in small towns and that's all you heard. As to the fact that I'm a lyricist. I enjoy some of the country songs that have great content.
thanks

When I do hear a country song that I like, it is usually one that describes someone's life in a straightforward, emotional manner. The songs often feel very personal. What I don't like is when a song seems to be trying to be blatantly "country" (by blatantly "country" I mean that it sounds as if everyone is wearing a cowboy hat and boots as part of a fake recreation of a lifestyle that few people actually follow now), or the song seems trite...overly simplistic and repetitive in theme or word choice. Songs that seem trite, over-simplistic, or lacking in originality can exist in all genres. My general feeling about country music is that it can offer solace to people who are feeling down-and-out. The songs can be very sweet and hopeful.

The thing that I like about the country music that I like is usually that it speaks to people in a room. You can dance to it or emote to it without a liberal arts education and there's no need to prove anything to anyone about it - it's what it is. It doesn't have to be complicated, it just gets across to your head and feet.

I also listen to a lot of inaccessible din .. but for different reasons.

I enjoy Country music to an extent. I like the old stuff, I think a lot of it was more from the heart. I just can't listen to someone who lives on a multi-million dollar ranch singing about hard times. Much of what I'm hearing as Country would have passed as Rock a couple decades ago. I believe Hank III has hit the true nerve of Country music (sounds just like his granddad), and can't wait to hear more from him.

My parent's rinsed it when I was a kid and now I am pretty much indoctrintaed. Plus, Johnny Cash is a badass and I like the lyrics.

Oh, and pedal steel guitars are pretty boss too.

Oh yeah. New country is unequivocally rubbish. Might be an unpopular view but it's what I believe.

I agree with the other posts -- most new country music is fairly bland (just like about any other genre out there right now, can I say Kei$ha?)

There are some artists which are pretty good. What about Randy Houser? Or Eric Church? I'm a big Toby Keith fan myself...

I know even these artist have there cookie-cutter country songs, but they also have some GREAT ones.
