ummm yeah it is... "Hailing from the bohemian college town of Athens, GA, Futurebirds play laid-back country-rock with an atmospheric, psychedelic twist."

If you read what I wrote...Which you didn't.... you would see that I said I like country for what it can be, not for what it has already established it self as... oh wait... I forgot I am talking to the "thank god for titties and beer," man, why would I even for a second begin to argue country, with someone whose idea of country music embodies slow dancing with his favorite gal at the elks lodge in whatever **** splat little town they hail from.... Next you are going to tell me this isn't country... and that this is the greatest song ever written...

Again, country has so much potential... and in recent years it has not been living up to it... so while you are swilling beer with your cronies in your trailer this afternoon, getting a "rebel" flag tattooed on your ass just remember.....

The Futurebirds having a Country Rock infused sound doesn't make them Country. They are an Indie Rock band. Now the Byrd's Sweetheart Of The Rodeo album was a failed attempt at Country. Just like Nashville didn't accept it as Country back then, I don't either.

And I don't accept day light savings time... but who really cares what I except and who certainly gives a damn what a narrow minded gentleman such as yourself excepts? Are you speaking on behalf of Nashville now? Exactly when did the music industry in Nashville apoint you as their go to guy for the entire country genre?

Failed hardly... everything about the the album is country... just because The Bryds decided they were tired of making rock records and wanted to branch out in no way negates that fact that the put out a steller country record... You know what it says.. It says they were well rounded musicians... The same goes for Jack White when he decided hey I am gonna go produce a record for Loretta Lynn... You are not defined by the genre of music you make... you are defined by your ability to adapt your music into something people want to hear... and for 45 ****in years people have listened to and liked if not loved Sweetheart of the Rodeo... so check yourself...

I am very sorry that in all your years wandering the earth, (or what ever small town in Alabama you come from) you never experienced people with true musical taste, talent or knowledge... I am sorry about that because,it's a dull meaningless life you must lead.

And the next time you respond to me, come at me with well spoken intelligence.. Don't just pick some random post, and not read it all the way through and spout off your "good ole boy" opinon... I am all for having a musical discussion with you about country...as a matter of fact I WOULD RELISH it, but I don't think you are ready for what I have to say in response...

Oh yeah and one last thing before I go, the only motha ****a bad enough to write a song about a ****in tractor in my opinion is the white lighting.. why because he was ****in bad enough to ride one around town...



sleep tight...

Clarence White was amazing guitar player. His life was cut short when he was killed by a drunken driver. He was a favorite of his contemporary Jimi Hendrix, who use to listen to him all the time. And they might not be the pure form of country to the purest country fan. He was influential to every chickin pickin guit-fiddler or Master of the Telecaster that came after him. They not only accept his style of playing they made it their Bible.

Yeah, you can't deny Clarence White or Gram Parsons' influence on Country Music. The Byrds were the first of the Country Rock (Rock sub genre) bands that tried to break into Country Rock (Country sub genre). As I said before they failed. Gram Parsons would try again with The Flying Burrito Brothers, but wouldn't have much success here either. The first to do so, I'd say would be, Dwight Yoakam back in '86. I honestly can't think of another Country Rock (Rock sub genre) artist that has totally broken into Country Music.

This is Clarence Carter:


The Eagles were the most successful band that played Country Rock during the 70s. I don't know how well the charted on the Country Charts, but regardless of that they were pretty popular elsewhere.

I meant Clarence White not Clarence Carter as you'd mentioned. Many Country Rock (Rock sub genre) acts along with South Rock acts have charted on the Country charts.
The Eagles' Long Road Out Of Eden did go #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart despite it not being Country. I blame that on Billboard and CMT promotion. Billboard charts things on the wrong charts at times, what can I say?

OK, you're making 2 completely erroneous conclusions here

1. You come of as if you're speaking as an insider in the big corporate Nashville machine. OK not really, nevertheless I'd happily bet everything I own against a twinkie that that's not the case

2. You're speaking as though the big corporate Nashville cookie-cutter stamp-em-out machine is a good thing. If there's any element of the business side of music I just utterly loathe and despise it's the Nashville machine. Great music, deeply from the heart, honest sincere music can come from all around there, but not from that fecking gawdawful machine.

I only know you said this because Roxy quoted you. Back to my ignore list you go.
