Well I specifically enjoy country music because of the real situations that it presents to me everytime I listen to a song. I am from Alabama, so it's practically in my roots. But a lot of the stories that are told through country music, I can relate to. It's nothing depressing or sad. Sometimes, a song could be about going grocery shopping & running into an old friend, but it just gives you a good feeling. I love the simplicity and the beauty of country music. Plus, in my opinion, there's nothing like a good ol' love song sung by a country singer. Brings me to my knees... haha

I just feel like most country is cookie cutter- trying to appreciate it - definitely understand that its mellow and thats cool but trying to find some original different stuff

When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..


Country Gold.

I've never seen such a blatant example of cookie cutting!

I sing mostly country music country music is all about me. If you listen to the words, somewhere along the way you will find a song with lyrics that tells the story of your life or some event in your life.

I like alot of different genres of music, but of course, it all depends on who is performing a particular song. I don't care for a great deal of what is currently labeled as "country," but I do like Alan Jackson, and some others. Don't like Rap in-general, BUT, there are a handfull of rap artists who I think are the folksingers of their generation. Primarily, I like alot of folk music, especially if it's performed with only the essential instruments (and hopefully in an acoustic style).

"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,

Favorite Country Artists

Kenny Rogers
Garth Brooks
Johnny Cash
Randy Travis
LeAnn Rimes
