Well, at least some here think Strait and Jackson are NEW!! \:D

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

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.


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.

LOL that's why there are so few female country artist today. They just don't sell records anymore unfortunately.

And what is with the skinny jeans! Where do they put that thing!?

Wasn't it Drive by Truckers that said that country music went downhill when Johnny Cash quit taking them pills?
