Yelp, I hated the other post about it hurting some peoples ears I started my own. I am going to just say it like it is. I am 28 years old and I love almost every country song that has came out in the past decade. ...however...I want to jump off a large cliff when I here some "original" country music. Sorry fellas just not my kind of "country".

If you don't like Hank Williams (and I mean Hank Sr. - not his hoodlum son) you don't like country music. Not that I have a strong opinion on the subject. haha \:\)

Country music in the last ten years is more a combination of Rap and Country.

Ok, do you like a Ford or Chevy? Pretty much the same question when asking if you like old country or new country better. Me, I drive a Chevy and listen to more middle to new country than I do the old classic country.

I never listened to country until the last 5 years or so. Old twangy country just doesnt sound good to my ears.

About the only older country I like is Johnny Cash and only some of it.

I do like alot of the new stuff, and am a huge fan of Zack Brown Band.

I also like
George Strait
Dierks Bentley
Eric Church
Jason Aldean
Lee Brice
Blake Shelton
Brad Paisley
Eli Young Band
Jamey Johnson
Josh Turner
Luke Bryan

I dont really give 2 craps if somebody thinks its country or not, I like the way it sounds. Im a product of the 90s, so I was always into the alternative rock/grunge/hard rock stuff. Making the turn to country is easier to swallow with the newer stuff.

I tend to listen to whatever I like and not worry about the opinions of the masses. I like some new, some old, some weird. This nation is great. You don't have to listen to anything you don't want to and every radio I've seen so far has an off button.

Ford and Chevy? No, this is more like the differance between a Harley and Moped. You must be a moped man. It's ok, we won't pick on you.... Too bad.

George Strait is country

Jamie Johnson has some good new country
Zack Brown Band is good too....but the later 2 are the exception to the rule.

I prefer country from about 20 years ago. Alan Jackson, Clint Black, Sara Evans, Alabama, early Toby Keith, Neal McCoy, John Anderson, Clay Walker, Carlene Carter, etc. I like some older stuff as well, but not much of the newer stuff.

Hank Williams
Ernest Tubb
Jim & Jesse
Flatt & Scruggs
Marty Robbins

Johnny Horton
Lefty Frizzell

Haven't heard all of the latest country the metrosexual wannabe cowboys have been singing for the suburban teenyboppers? I'll sum it up for you.

"Ride in my pickup truck and rock your cut off shorts and tank top while I play "County Boy Can Survive" and drink some sort of alcohol until you dance on the tailgate of my truck at a bonfire on a Friday night after working all week."

There, you have it. \:D

Although that "Springsteen" song is kinda catchy. \:\)

For some reason I like the Wagon Wheel song. But that's the only new song I have liked in a long time. My vehicle usually is fully of CDs...most of which I've burned and put whatever I want to on 'em. I grew up on country but country ain't country no more.

quick story. think it was 20 or 21 years ago when I worked in Brentwood I use to eat at this meat and three that was in a doublewide. It was always busy and you just sat a table with anyone else. Sat with this elderly man one day and started talking and all these people would come up to him and congratulate him on this award he won and that he looked great on TV.Turned out I was sitting with Eddie Arnold and he had just got some life time achievement award.sometimes I really miss living in Nashville.

Wow, that is something. When those guys get older and out of the spotlight they of course look different and you just don't expect to actually sit down and eat with them like that so it's no wonder you didn't recognize him. My cousin works in Nashville near some big mall and will tell me often of some big current star he has seen shopping or eating. We (my family when I was a teenager) were at Opryland years ago when the Wabash Cannon Ball roller coaster had just opened. My Father was always a big Roy Acuff fan so he almost couldn't believe his eyes when Roy Acuff himself walked up to check the ride out. We got to talk to him a few minutes and he was very down to earth and friendly.

I like most of today's country and some of the old stuff just not the twangy sound. The latest rap style sucks to be blunt but as stated if something comes on I don't like I pick another station. I predominantly listen to country but like the 70s & 80's rock and roll too. Don't give 2 cents about rap or hip hop.

Classic Rock is my first love, but old country is a close second.
My cousin used to be a big record mongel for RCA, he had Wayan, Willie, and Alabama, then he started his own production company on Music Row, and was successful.

First thing I noticed about this thread was all the old timers trying to make others feel less than normal for liking todays country. Just because we dont like all yalls stuff doesnt mean ours is garbage?! Kinda like old people in church, all they do is judge new folks as soon as they walk in the doors. Anyhow...... In my YOUNG opinion, none of them hold a candle to Justin Moore. One of the only COUNTRY artists that stands up for what half of this forum believes in. Our rights and the good ole american way.

At 31 years old, I hardly consider myself to be an "old timer".

And my formative radio years centered around the rise of Garth Brooks....so when I say "this new crap sucks and is nothing but rehashed stereotypes sung by meterosexual douchebags", that's really saying something. At least Garth Brooks didn't frost his hair & wear designer denim.

This argument doesn't work with Country music because you have many, many fans if Country music who's taste span 50+ years of it. 70s Country was absolutely different any than 60's Country. Remarkably different, however it still stay connected to the past. Heck, Bob Dylan was the first "outsider" to lend credibility to the fat that County music has a rich tradition of songwriting. I like it all the way to the beginning: Old Time String Bands, Mountain Modal harmonies, Country blues, The Carter Family, Bluegrass, 50's, 60's, and 70's country. I listen to quite a few "new" country artists as well, though most are far out of the mainstream and rooted heavily in tradition.

It's difficult to tell someone who likes a 100+ years of a music tradition that they are "out of touch." No, that's not the case. The crap just sucks. It's awful. It's a insult to the tradition of Country music. If it existed in it own stratosphere, that would be fine, but this crap is rammed down our throats as "Country music." Where so you draw the line? Just wen you think it can't get anymore reidulous, you have a song such as they one which sets a new (low) standard.

I think that you don't understand how important Country music is both to many individuals, but to contemporary American history. Country and Blues are the foundation of all forms of American music and ultimately "pop culture" at large. It's not just songs, it's history and culture.

I have a very wide range of musical interest. I do like a lot of the new stuff. You and Tequila, Anything by Lady Antebellum or Little Big Town. I like the Wagon Wheel song but the one I always crank up is Boondocks. I may change it to Rock, jazz, blues or gospel after a little country.
btw- I grew up listening to The Statler Brothers, Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Pride, etc. Charlie Daniels was played on the rock stations back then, too. I still listen to all of it.

In my YOUNG opinion, none of them hold a candle to Justin Moore. One of the only COUNTRY artists that stands up for what half of this forum believes in. Our rights and the good ole american way.


Nice first post, welcome to the site Justin Moore ;\)

Thats your opinion though, all genres of music tend to change over the years, I don't really have a dog in the fight because I like alot of the old and new stuff, but just because its sounds different doesn't mean its bad.

We like some of the old stuff
We like some of the new
We like ZZ top.
We like Country and Rock.

Old Hank would be proud
And Elvis would too
'Cause we like our country
Mixed with some big city blues

Sorry fellas just not my kind of "country".



i hate all country, new and old. but the new junk is horrible imo. bunch of city wusses wearing buckle jeans who dont know a bull from a bulldozer. aint worth a warm cup of camel piss.

There, you have it. \:D



Although that "Springsteen" song is kinda catchy. \:\)

I believe I've seen on some documentaries that when Hank
senior first started to play what you call classic country, the older generation then thought it was the worst stuff they had ever heard.

I believe that you are confusing Hank with Hank Jr. The term "Country & Western" was coined in 1949 specifically because of the success of Hank Williams. Before that, music of rural whites was called "Hillbilly" music. (Likewise, the term "Rhythm and Blues" was coined that same year as, before that, Black music was called "Race" music.)

Hank Jr. started his career singing his father's music, when he started doing his own thing, it was quite upsetting to a number of people who just wanted to hear his father's songs. And, again, that argument doesn't work because there are plenty of people who are fans of 100+ years of "Country" music and draw the line in the sand for most of it somewhere in the mid 90s. There is a way to progress forward while respecting tradition and there are plenty of people out there doing just that and doing it well, however you won't hear it coming from mainstream Nashville.

No it was senior back in the day and older folks didn't like his lifestyle or music at 1st.

Nobody saw them running
From 16th Avenue
They never found the fingerprints
Or the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music
Cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder
Down on music row

The almight dollar
And the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition
And for that, someone shouldhang ("Ahh, you tell 'em Alan")
They all say "Not Guilty!"
But the evidence will show
That murder was committed
Down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry
And the fiddles barely play
But drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
Are mixed up in your face
Ol' Hank wouldn't have a chance
On today's radio
Since they committed murder
Down on music row

They thought no one would miss it
Once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them ol'
Drinkin' and cheatin' songs ("Oh, but I still buy 'em")
Well there ain't no justice in it
And the hard facts are cold
Murder's been committed
Down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry
And you can't hear fiddles play
With drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
Mixed right up in your face
Why the Hag wouldn't have a chance
On today's radio
Since they committed murder
Down on music row

Why they even tell the Possum
To pack up and go back home
There's been an awful murder
Down on music row

These lyrics say it all. \:\)

I always figured that this song was pointed at Dick Clark and his crew.

Hank Sr's lifestyle certainly wasn't good - he suffered from depression and was the way I see it his own worse enemy. But I've never heard anybody say his music wasn't country even back when he was starting out. I HAVE heard that Roy Acuff told Hank Sr. that he had a million dollar voice and a ten cent brain refering to his huge success and self destructive ways. I never heard about Mr. Acuff criticizing his music - obviously saying he had a "million dollar voice" sounds like he was praising him to me.

George Strait and Alan Jackson are definitely in that transitional time frame when Country began to suck, but I consider them traditional. Brooks and Dunn...notsomuch.

Yeah, I'm not really hot or cold towards Alan Jackson and George Strait but they sure made that song sound like the real deal. I respect them for having the guts to go against their industry and record something like this which must not have made them much money. I don't think it was ever played on the radio outside of WSM. I remember the 1st time I heard it on WSM, I was convinced it was from the 1950's and that somehow I had missed hearing it all my life. I have heard it sung by the writer but he didn't make it sound nearly so good.

Merle Haggard's birthday was yesterday (born 1937) and Willine Nelson's birthday is this month (born 1933). -going to be a sad day when these two are gone. If you don't kbow, both are still very active with new records out every couple of years as regular touring. Willie Nelson's output from the last couple of years has been his best since the mid 70's. First single off the new record is a cover of "Matchbox" by Carl Perkins.
