some of the lyrics are more extreme than gangsta rap, but the music is contrapuntal to it in some ways, that's why I like it - e.g. Cash's Delia's Gone or Cocaine Blues
haha now that you mention it.

That is so true

Earl's gonna die anyone?

or maybe the song is goodbye earl but still.

Much as I like Johnny Cash his version of "Delia's Gone" never did it for me. OK, this is a psychopath singing, but we get no idea of who he is or his motivation. And I thought the video for trhat just in bad taste.
"Cocaine Blues" on the other hand is brill. This Psycho is one you can believe & the frantic pace helps. Cash went in a fair bit for psycho lyrics- as in the guy in Folsom Prison Blues who shot a man in Reno "just to watch him die".
If you are looking for gangsta country, check out David Allan Coe. The guy is bonkers, but some of his songs are great

Have to disagree. These are simple morality tales. Tony, Delia's murderer and the narrator of Cocaine Blues, kill out of jealousy and drug-fuelled rage. They know that they have done wrong. Tony's guilty conscience supplies "the patter of Delia's feet" in his jail cell. The narrator of Folsom Prison Blues says "I know I had it coming, I know I cant be free" The're the opposite of psychopaths, who see no wrong in their actions.
Because these songs are morality tales, they always show that the murderer cannot escape the consequences of their deeds. The killer ends up in jail or on the gallows. This tradition goes back to songs such as T for Texas, Tom Dooley and Hey Joe.

I have nothing against country music, except that my aunt in hillbilly Harrison, Michigan made me listen to it once, and I vomited in my new Lexus, or that all her kids who listen to that crap look like autistic bastards from the 1950, no I hate your mullets, your banjo’s and you possum stew, your sister/wife, I hate everything country but Shaiah Twains sweet ass.

I listen to some country because it's always kind of telling a story.. It gets pretty in depth.. Unlike a lot of songs where they touch on things, emotions, but more vague.. A country song will literally spend 4 minutes telling you why they "Love this bar" haha.. It's fun

I love the sound of it, the instrumentation. But also the songs are more rooted in reality than pop songs. Country & blues both seem more real than much pop music which can be rather synthetic

as a somewhat preterite origin, it was probably my father playing a lot of Slim Whitman when I was a baby
