I tolerate it. I like Josh Turners sext sultry voice, I like Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban. For the women, I like Sugarland, Gretchen Wilson and Martina Mcbride, that's about it. Now, if we're talking OLD country, like, Hank Sr, era, LOVE IT!!!
Other than that, I have to have a beat, either from the oldies but goodies or now days, I like the hip hop, some rap. I need a beat to get this body movin, lol

It's the only type of music (with lyrics) that I can turn on in the car without worrying about my kids.

It's the one current genre of music that talks about how a man really truly loves his wife, how a woman looks up to her man, how a man has so much respect for his father, how a kid loves his parents, how a family enjoys each other's company. It also talks about being humble, and thankful for what you have.

Read the lyrics to this one from Lonestar:

I like that!

I also like some of the lighter, sillier fare, like Brad Paisley. That boy can make me laugh with this one most of all:
You said exactly what I wanted to say. I love it too. I was raised on it, and I like both classic and contemporary country. I also love bluegrass, but I would not want to listen to it exclusively. I also love many songs from other genres, but if I had to listen to just one genre it would be country. I don't like every country song ever made, but I doubt anyone can say they love every single song in their prefered genre.

To get the REAL Country Music, go to XMRadio.com and tune in to channel 10 or 13.
Then there is Bluegrass on channel 14.

i don't have an ol' dog, and my wife hasn't run away (yet ). i do have a truck, but it starts every time and runs well.

so country music ain't much about me.

That is what everyone who hates country music says. Have you ever listened to the lyrics to most rock songs? SSDC. And how about the Blues?

I love country music, I grew up hating it. When I got married that's all hubby listened to and he taught me to two step, so now I love it.
Yes some songs are about old trucks and spouses leaving, but there are a lot about kids growing up and getting marreid( Stealing Cinderella), Young love that survives (I'll Walk), I think most of all they are about true feelings that everyone has just most do not want to admit.

Yup,
I'm a country fan. Grew up with it as a child, worked around it as a teen. Then left it as a teen in the 70's for Zepplin, Stones, Aerosmith, ect....
Came back to it when rock turned into thrash metal and cookie monster lyrics.
