Nope. I just can't do it. Don't have an old dog with fleas, don't drink beer, and don't have a hairy sister-inlaw!

My DH works the news side of a country radio station and they often play the "traditional" type of country.

I'm more a fan of Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban etc. You get the idea.

Big Dog, I can add a poll choice if you want me to. PM me with what you want.

I grew up with it always on so I do have a fondness for it but it is not something I turn to when I put the radio on. There are hundreds of country songs I love, and I have always liked country videos because they are more like mini movies but can't say I'm a country girl. My choice is Jazz.

When my daughter Nancy was a teenager she said she hated Country music. When we went somewhere in the car, we had a deal. If she was keeping me company, we listened to her music (she liked things like New Kids on the Block, Boyz to Men, etc.). If I was driving her somewhere she wanted or needed to go, we listened to my music. One day I was in the living room and heard music playing in her room. I heard it more clearly when I walked down the hall--it was Country. I asked her about it later, and she said she was starting to like some of it. She still doesn't listen to much Country, but she does like some of it.

I've been hooked on her work since 1987, when at sixteen she had her first hit "Steel Rails".
She's won 21 Grammy Awards, more than any other female country artist, and tied for 7th among all artists.

The only disappointing offering was this recent duet album with Robert Plant.........the style of the two performers seems to lose it in the attempt to meld........... I like YOUR idea,BigDog; Allison and Charlie........ I'd buy that'n without even hearing it!

I like some country music every now and then, but not a steady dose of the popular country music. And I tend to like the "fringe" artists. Like Leon Russells album called "Hank Wilson's Back", of Hank Williams' songs. One of my all time favorite songs is "Coat of Many Colors" written by Dolly Pardon, but I don't care for Dolly's version of her own song...but Emmy Lou Harris does a dynamite version of it.

I prefer Jazz, R&B, Classical, Cabaret, Show Tunes, even Marching Band music.... just my taste.
ditto on the twang and words. old joke--i got tears in my ears from lying on my back in my bed as i cry over you.

Yfou didn't specify which country-currently I can't get enough of estrume n' tal-Brazilian Surf LEGENDS!!!

And although they are now wrapping up a 20+ year career, Finlands "Laika and the Cosmonauts" are always at the top of my playlist!!!!
