I imagine there's some less cheesy stuff hiding behind a rock somewhere.

If my parents can tolerate it, I probably hate it.

^ HaHa! Glad to see that we are more or less starting on the same page, MicShazam! I think our challenge is going to be to walk a path between cheesy country on one side and on the other, gothic country, which quite rightly imo has a thread of its own: https://www.musicbanter.com/country-...k-cabaret.html

I wonder if this song will pass the MicShazam Test: I like it because of the humour in the lyrics:-

More than racism, I think that sentimentality is the defining attitude of Country Music. It's in my fave-so-far Gram Parson's song, Hickory Wind, and it's here in spades in this quality post from Paul Smeenus:-

Of course Nashville didn't release it for decades until Dolly, to her credit, insisted it be included in a box set.

"I stayed in my little room in the bus and cried while Porter and the band went on and did the shows without me. In Eugene, Oregon, I decided that I had to get up and get on stage that night. I was so weak that it took me all afternoon to get ready."


"I went out on stage, informed the audience that I was sick and asked them to please forgive my weakness. They totally supported me, they loved me and gave me my first standing ovation — actually two. I got one after I finished my song ‘Coat of Many Colors’ and I cried like a baby. I almost couldn’t go back into the next song I was so touched by it.”


"Then I got another standing ovation when I left the stage. I went back a couple of times for encores. I was so touched by their kindness that I went straight to the bus, as sick as I still was, and wrote the song, ‘Eugene, Oregon.’ To this day it is one of my favorite songs and I will remember Eugene, Oregon, for the rest of my life.”

(Not sure how much I would like this song without the backstory tbh.)

Still Pending: Willie Nelson.

I like [some] country because it's simple. You can throw it on as background noise or on your headphones and enjoy it all the same. The topics tend to pander to the lowest common denominator [usually problems with interpersonal relationships or the pains of growing up], so it makes it relatable. I like older country artists like JOHNNY CASH, GEORGE JONES and CONWAY TWITTY. Newer artists like CHRIS STAPLETON and ZAC BROWN also float my boat.

I like the country style of song-writing where you just say how you feel or how you perceive life to be. It doesn't have to be complexly written to be deep, and the good country music is the perfect example of that. I also love the traditional country instrument sounds. I like the pedal steel, I like the banjo, I like the fiddle, and I like a good dobro.

Dwight got me into country many years ago when I was battling some demons, but what really caught my ear was Pete Anderson. His less-is-more approach is fantastic.

Johnny Cash is in a class of his own.

Might be the best country song I've ever heard
