    The Country Music Hall of Fame and a show at the Ryman is a must if youíre ever in Nashville. Just great.

    My wife is a late arrival for country but loves it. For our anniversary this year, I bought 2 Country Megatickets at Riverbend. 7 shows, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan (her favorite), Brad Paisley, FGL, Thomas Rhett, and Jason Andean. I guess I need to buy a cowboy hat.
    aren't there any country artists there?
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Surprised there's no Guy Clark picks.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    The same thing that happened to C&W music happened to NASCAR. It got preppy! LOL

    Could anyone see Merle, Waylon, or George singing a song like Achy Breaky Heart? LOL

    Boy, there are so many. Can't give any love to Tennessee Whiskey though, because it's a complete ripoff is Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind". A lot of other great suggestions though.

    Even "Trashy Women" by Confederate Railroad deserves an honorable mention.

    I try to embrace it all. Listened to Everly Brothers then Alice in Chains today.

    But this country talk has me kinda wanting to put some old stuff on.
    I gotta say, I'm mostly a Classic Rock Guy. I had been listening to Pink Floyd and the Doors when I stumbled on this thread. It's been George Strait stuff since then.

    I think Jerry Jeff Walker wrote that. Not sure why I know that. Fun song.

    Springsteen actually used to do it in concerts. Claimed he liked the song. I lived in Nashville not long after it was out, and there was a story that the writer had been peddling the song around town for years to the point that it was an object of mockery.

    But Billy Ray turned it into a couple of nice mansions.

    They have all recorded songs just as hokey. I remember George singing a song about drinking from a Flintstone jelly jar.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    Absolutely true. But I'm talking more about the beat (style) of the song, not lyrical, and that it just doesn't "fit" into the C&W genre that I grew up with.

    JMO, but I loved southern rock (from Allman Brothers to Lynyrd Skynyrd), and I think that has had a big influence on today's C&W artists.

    And I noticed this gentleman hasn't been mentioned (my Dad really liked him) ....

    Does any of the new country songs fit into traditional country sounds? I think it’s more pop/boy band esqe contrived drivel.

    I was a Freshman in college. A stupid move, and I'd lost my sweetheart. "Misery and Gin" just released that summer, was my story. Loved that song then, and still do.
