    Er, no. It's dead, as is widely known. Now country is soft rock from Yanks and Australians.

    You do know that music is available from places other than the radio, I hope?

    You have to start by turning the radio off. It's out there. What you listen to HWIII will ell you what it is.
    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.

    GAT is great. Sometimes they back up Todd Snider. I hope to catch one of those shows.

    III is what made me have a little faith in the genre still. Love him, seen him live many times. Great performer.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12

    I play six different instruments, work at two different music shops. You're not about to tell me anything about music that I already don't know. The genre is dead, sorry.

    Pretty much, but still a dead genre.

    Just because there's a small handful of singers/musicians that haven't sold out, doesn't mean it's alive and well. Actual Country music makes up less than 1% of all "Country" music. And that equates to a dead genre. There's still Skiffle bands out there, and yet Skiffle is a dead genre - same thing with Country. If 99% of Metal wasn't Metal, then that would be dead. If 99% of Jazz didn't sound like Jazz, then that would be dead. Well, 99% of Country isn't even Country, therefore it's dead. Really, the only genre similar to Country that isn't dead, is Bluegrass.

    You're right about one thing--nobody's going to tell you anything you don't already know.

    You certainly can't, obviously. Country is dead, unfortunately. Hooray for the 1%.

    LOL!

    I don't care how many instruments you play or music shops you work at, I know more about music than you do, and you are clearly very ignorant about the subject.

    Shave is awesome as is T. Snider.

    Vince Herman did some friends of mine a solid and GAT playd a show in Paducah, KY. I've been a Leftover Salmon fan for a long time so it was cool to see Vince in such a small place and my friends sitting in.

    You've mistaken me for someone who cares what you think. Country is dead, get over it. I know more about music than you ever will. Sorry to hear you're so ignorant on the subject.

    Meh. I disagree. Country music has just evolved.

    I hate old country music, except for a few classics.

    Pop radio has turned into rap, hip hop, studio-produced garbage/dance music that can barely be reproduced live.

    Modern Country is akin to the pop music you used to hear back in the 70's, minus the disco stuff. The Eagles would be listed as Modern Country if all their hits were coming out today. Also, Southern Rock falls into the Modern Country genre too. Lynyrd Skynyrd would play on Country Music channels today........in fact members of the group had a few country hits out a few years ago. Artists like Jewel and Sheryl Crow have said in interviews that their stuff is really country. Sheryl has a song in the top 40 country right now. The twangy stuff is becoming less and less. Artists like Jason Aldean and occasionally Toby Keith and others, get that southern rock stuff going.

    I'm in the minority, but because I hate the direction that pop music took with all the hip hop, rap, and studio-produced dance music.........I kind of like hearing a pop song where the lyrics actually make sense - but now it's on country music stations.

    And I appreciate artists like Keith Urban and Brad Paisley who can play the snot out of their guitars. And I enjoy watching an awards show where the artists can perform their songs live and actually sound like the recording, unlike modern pop music.

    I do like Mumford & Sons and other alternative. They're not folksy, but they are alternative - Muse - like them a lot.

    I'm pretty flexible. It it's a good song, I don't care what the genre is.
