Ok call me sad but Ive got really into Country of late.

My mate who lives in Vancouver put on a playlist when I went to see him and i couldnt believe it - it was really good. Country has a redneck stigma attached to it, and it has to be the least "cool" genre of music ever. Its seriously uncool over here, but there is something about it. For some reason i found myself really getting into it. Maybe its the honesty of the music, the fun of it all, the hard drinking, hard working and hard falling in love thing they have going on, I dont know. There's a lot to like about cowgirls and reneck women too - Jenn Sterger etc.

Now, four months later, am finding myself listening to a lot of Tim McGraw, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins, Kasey Chambers, Josh Thomson, Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich.

Am I on my own on this? I get the impression its really popular in the south of the US, but basically unheard of outside of that.

Anyone else into it? Any recommendations?

I don't understand the stigma behind country music and why tons of people seem to hate it for no reason. It's not all that I listen to, and I don't expect everyone to embrace it with open arms, but I find that many people who talk bad about country have never listened to the lyrics or even listened to a full song. It seems that in certain areas and demographics within the US, people hate country music because their friends do, and nobody would be caught dead even giving it a chance.

I mean, yeah...it is generally more "redneck" than R&B or hip-hop, but that's because it's based on an entirely different lifestyle - one where the nearest "club" is hundreds of miles away. People like to talk about country music being associated with "trailer trash," but at the opposite end of the spectrum you can see young college kids from affluent families dancing to raunchy music in nightclubs with a totally different lack of class to it.

In the last few years I've become a huge fan of Keith Urban. He puts a lot of heart & soul into his lyrics, he writes his own songs, and he can REALLY play guitar. I was able to score a front row ticket to one of his shows last summer and it was a total blast. I've also started to like Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry and some other recent groups. I may not be an "authentic" country fan, though, since most of the bands I listen to sort of bridge the gap between rock and country.

I don't mind liking country...whenever someone tries to question my taste in music, I simply mention the lyrics of some of the Top 40 songs they're always dancing to and how superficial and meaningless the songs have become.

Welcome to my RU list buddy.

I could not agree more with everything you say. I despise that "urban/R&B" thing - guns, gotta get paid, beehatches, gees, hoes, Phillies, blunts, nines and get rich or die trying etc. Glamourises guncrime, gang culture, drugs, materialism and objectification of women. Nothing sadder than middle class white kids from the country grinding each other wishing they were gangsters and trying to talk like they ghetto, ho. etc.

Not heard any Keith Urban or Lady Antelbellum but if they are country/rock crossover then I'm all over them - thats very much my thing.

Any other recommendations?

I too don't understand the stigma, if one still exists, and some of it is formulaic at times, but there is far greater musicianship in Nashville today than anywhere else probably.

I hate some of the mainstream Auto-tune crap they've done, but on balance, there is some really good music in the genre, although it's a wide genre now.

Exactly. I think one of the reasons that people in the "popular" demographic resent country music and its associated lifestyle is because of its "simplicity" and thus implied lack of intelligence and culture.

In fact, a lot of country I've listened to has taught me things that I otherwise had forgotten in today's world...namely the beauty of simple things and how it really takes very little to be happy. With today's materialism and over-sexed pop culture, it's no wonder that many people have lost touch and rely on artificial pleasure to get them through hard times or even good times.

As I mentioned, I don't really listen to a wide variety of country artists at present (I'm still getting my feet wet, too), but I'll let you know if I come across any other suggestions. I'm sure a lot of other members are well-versed in things like classic country from decades ago, which you might want to check out as well.

Personally, I'm more of a country traditionalist than any of you guys. Frankly, I'm tired of the crossover crap Nashville has tried to shove down America's throat the last ten years of so. I like Lady A and Sugarland. but I can't stand any of the rest of those artists. I haven't heard anything from Kasey Chambers in ten years! I'm shocked she's still around! Just goes to show you what doesn't get airplay over here can be huge in Europe.

My favorite artists are people like Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, Vince Gill, the early '90s stuff especially. Newer artists I love include Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, Zac Brown Band, and Chris Young. But I also have Conway Twitty, George Jones, Keith Whitley, Vern Gosdin, and Merle Haggard in my collection also.

OTOH, I agree, the musicianship in Nashville is ten times better than anything the pop or rock world would ever turn out. I got teased mercilessly for liking country music when I was a kid (12-13 years old), That waned over time, especially once people started listening to the actual lyrics.

Correct. Here are two quotes that say it all: "Rock 'n Roll is what happens on the weekend. Country music is about what happens during the week." and "Country music is two things, three chords and the truth."

One of the things I love about country is how relatable the songs are. Try that with today's techno-crap.

I love country music, at least the stuff that was made before Gretchen Wilson and a few other people decided to turn it into "Let's-see-how-redneck-we-can-be" lovefest inspiring a deluge of REALLY BAD "I'm so hick" songs in the mid 2000's. I mean really, when Little Big Town is sining that they're proud to be "born and raised in the boondocks" (they're from Marietta, Georgia, one of the whitest, yuppiest suburbs in Atlanta, and certainly devoid of "crawdad holes") things are getting beyond ridiculous. Thankfully that delightful trend is starting to die out. I'll single out two "artists" who have made it really difficult to enjoy country music since about 2000 because they have been everywhere: Kenny Chesney, and Taylor Swift. Neither one of them can sing and their songs sound exactly the same.

The "crossover" thing was cool when it was just Shania, because it made her unique (although her first two albums are decidedly country, with almost no pop at all). Then they tried to make EVERYBODY a crossover, and it was just too much. Sidenote, did anybody else think it was a bit ridiculous for Faith Hill to say she was a "Mississippi Girl" after seeing her writhe around in the desert covered only by a flesh-colored bed sheet???

Most people still associate country music with Hank Williams and Kitty Wells. Hard to argue with somebody not being able to tolerate that, but their parents didn't like that, so they never listened to the new stuff that came out in the 1970's and 80's...and the trend continues.

While I'm not a big fan of country music in the traditional sense, some country music has crossed over to pop music. Look at Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Dixie Chicks, Lonestar, etc etc. I think the stigma has died down and you hear some of the above artist on top 40 music station nowadays.

Actually, I love Kenny Chesney, but get tired of having the same songs crammed down my throat by local radio. They did that with Tim, Taylor, and Faith to the point that I can't stand their stuff anymore. Oh, I like Faith's earlier stuff, but you won't catch me listening to anything from her since '99.

Do yourself a big favor and listen to some real country music: Hank Williams Sr, George Jones, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Marty Robins, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Eddie Arnold, Patsy Cline, Charley Pride. Cowboy Copus, Tom T Hall, Hawksaw Hawkins, Hank Snow, Lefty Frizzell, Johnny Rodrigues, Freddie Fender, Chet Atkens and I could go on and on. The bottom line is that there is a vast treasure trove of old country music that is much better than the modern stuff.

By the way the same goes for Rock and Roll.

Trailer trash usually listens to classic rock and hip hop, at least that is what I hear in these parts.

I am classic country music fan. I have not listened to new country since 1995. If it wasn't originally sold on 8 track or LP I don't like it! I have a very large collection of country 8 tracks, LPs, and 45s. I have a juke box filled with classic country 45s in my kitchen.

Whilst I have very little American country music in my collection, there are some songs in my playlists that play pretty frequently, Steve Earle features heavily along with a couple of others.

Mostly I listen to Folk music, which has enjoyed something of a resurgence in the UK of late. My favorite folk band would be Show of Hands (it is not often you can make a band work with two multi-instrumentalist lead singers), who I seen in Sheffield cathedral just a few weeks ago, along with Jackie Oates, another favorite. Both of them give you a pleasant blend of their own songs influenced by the modern world, and traditional folk songs from the bygone centuries. It is just a shame that most people think of folk music as entirely Irish music with lots of "diddly dee" lines. Not to belittle traditional Irish music, but there is so much more to folk as a whole than that.

Indeed. Although trance/R&B/dance etc are not to my personal tastes, some of my other tastes could not be much more different to the tales of ancient mining disasters and lives spent at sea that can feature quite frequently in old folk. Heavy metal for example. And indeed some unlikely sounding Celtic inspired metal from Brazil of all places, but that is for another thread...

By the way the same goes for Rock and Roll.

I wouldn't say necessarily better than, there are always extremely talented musicians out there, but there is an unfortunate trend towards ignoring older music in favour of what is "now". This is an especially sad trend in genres such as folk and country that started out largely as a way of telling stories and remembering your history. Where we came from.

This is why I have to mention one of my other all time favourite bands, The Spinners. As in the 1960s folk band (and first band to have major success in the UK with a multi-racial lineup), not the 1970s soul band, also good.

I do think that in the genres of folk and country do require a much higher standard of musicianship to be successful than other genres, but there is plenty of talent wherever you look, just unfortunately some great pretenders about. In pop and rock particularly in my view.

I'm by no means remotely a connoisseur but I do like me some Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Alison Kraus et co., Joan Osborne's country album (yes that Joan Osborne), Dixie Chicks, Loretta Lynn, and even the new crossover stuff like Lady Antebellum and Shania Twain that's really just pop where someone in the studio pressed the "add instant twang" button. I love Ryan Adams and some of his stuff crosses solidly into country territory. What I don't like is the "I got a truck and a big hat and here's a slide guitar" country stuff. To me country songs are about telling a great story in a simple manner, so just singing about how "country" you are is a turn off. Same with hip hop that only sings about how rich/thug they are but that's another ball of wax.

I like the uncomplicated-ness of country music, and I think that simplicity sometimes comes across as "dumb" to a lot of people, plus some of the instruments often used in country music are probably an acquired taste. I think it's the steel guitar that's great in small doses but can quickly sound like a herd of dying cats if it's over done.
