I'm currently immersed country music.


Of course, no one cares.

But I figured I'd tell you all anyway,

I resent that.

Most people I know who get immersed in country back off to include other stuff. I am sure you have multiple tastes in music, Zank. I should have made it clear that it was the "immersed" part I was refering to. Do you like old time?

Ah.

Well, almost every song on my playlist is country, and I'm currently in the process of going through my parent's CD's and adding more.

I do like some of the more "modern" music, but I can't be bothered with most of it.

As far as "old time", if you mean do I listen to the oldies, like johnny Cash and Alan Jackson, then, yeah.

Who can not like Johnny Cash? I meant music of the type in the movie, "Oh, Brother"?

Never watched it, sorry.

It is really very old country - appalachian mountain. Wikipedia"s 'old-time music' artical is pretty good.

Ah...folk tunes.

Well, no, not really.


I don't dislike them, I just don't like them.

Being almost tone deaf, a lot is lost on me. Like some of a lot, but NOT opera, much to some of my family's amazement. (real question, not making fun) - are there Canadian country music singers?

A few.

Emerson Drive, for one, is Canadian.

There are several others, I just can't remember them.

As far as 'old time', Johnny Cash-yes, Alan Jackson-no. Alan Jackson is just one of the current slew of slickly-packaged George Jones Clones. Listen to George Jones and you'll hear just how many current singers are derived from him.

Some more old school suggestions:

Hank Williams
Tex Ritter
Earnest Tubb
Kitty Wells
Red Sovine
Tom T. Hall
Porter Waggoner
Buck Owens
Charlie Pride
Conway Twitty
Loretta Lynn

These guys & gals all had their own thing going and didn't sound like each other.

By the way, I hate country but defend your right to listen to it. :fsm_rock:

If you hate opera then you can't be completely tone deaf. :D

If you hate opera then you haven't heard enough Mozart.
