The Eagles were one of the most popular bands that played Country music or music with a Country flair to it, with the bulk of their career and material in the 70s way before Dwight in '86. I mentioned the Eagles because they had a Top Ten hit on the Country Charts before Dwight. I don't know how much it matters that "Billboard charts things on the wrong charts at times" because it's pretty evident the Eagles were 1. Country Rock band and 2. successful.
I don't know what your criteria is to filtered out the success of the Eagles had with Country Rock before Dwight Yoakam had in '86.

Fellas...Fellas... we have to remember something; That this person has made up his mind that country, is country and there aint a dagum thing we can do to change his mind.... If your name aint Dwight, Kenny Reba or Dolly you aint country... and God help you if you played any other genre before you made an attempt to grow as an artist, because you still "AINT" country...

Ok as for you my dear Scotty,

My gloves are coming off... I made an attempt at blowing you out of the water and I made the mistake of trying to be as sweet as I possibly could without losing the foundation of my argument... so bare with me as I make a few points.. (and try not to take them to heart too much as they are meant to prove a couple things and not to hurt your feelings and make you crawl inside a bottle of the ever classy Wild Turkey...)

1. You are everything that is wrong with country music. You have a narrow minded belief of what it is and what it should be... Surely I don't have to point out that beliefs are dangerous... People all through out history, have lost their lives, over BELIEFS... IDEAS are much healthier, because an idea can change and grow right along side the person that gave birth to them... If we as a people still held the certain beliefs I as a black woman wouldn't even be writing this, I would be hold up in my slave quarters behind your house wondering whether to start with your laundry or picking the cotton first.. And I don't need to point out that getting rid of those beliefs cost us as a UNITED STATES a hefty war....

I respect the fact that you like your country as simple and quaint as a small town... But I like mine raw and unfiltered like moonshine...

I spent a few years in Nashville, in my late teens and early 20's, and coming from the north I had a some really messed up ideas about the south, I was paranoid that there were lynch mobs around every corner...But after spending many a summers evening dropping some world class acid, with some good hearted southern folk, I found that simply was not the case.. One of my friend's father was a record producer in the country scene, (which you claim to know all about.) and I used to spend hours talking about music and sifting through his jukebox, and 45 collection, and even he thought like I do, that country is not living up to what it can be... and for you to sit on your porch in your rocker, and have the balls, to wrap it in a small quantifiable box is a sin...

And lastly before, I put this thread out of my mind, you never mentioned the country musicians that decided they wanted to play rock... are they not country either?

eh? Correct me if I am wrong, but is this not the GAMBLER, making a psych tune?

And what's your excuse for Mr. Ten Gallon Hat (Garth Brooks..) when he decided he wanted to make a rock single.. Am I the only one who remembers him growing a goatee and calling himself Chris Gaines?

Push mower, YAY lol (unsure about that one)

Someone else said it tells a story which is only a bonus bc music is about sound. It is intriguing, tho, that particular song bc it doesn't make sense.

Country has quite possibly (besides soul n funk) the best bass.

Seems to promote humanity, lessening violence and drama.

Story telling as icing on the cake.

It made the vision in my head so much nicer.. of Randy....
