Him, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams Jr (who I consider a great country singer which appeals to my rebell side) are some IMHO of the best country singers ever.

Didn't listen to many Hank Sr's song much, maybe I should and not sure at all who Faron Young or Townes Van Zandt are but will look them up.. YouTube is fantastic for this!
Townes Van Zandt is sort of in the tradition of Hank Sr, long gone now. And Faron Young (who my parents dragged me to see at the Grand Ole Opry in about 1970) has a voice very much like Ray Price or Darrel McCall.

Speaking of Darrell McCall, I saw him last spring and he looked and sounded great and was still touring in a small area. He was promoting his niece, Amber Digby, and his friend Justin Trevino.

Justin is a young guy, maybe late 30s, who does "old country" and I LOVE him. He doesn't tour much, even in Texas where we spend the winters, but we saw him last winter. He's blind, but I didn't realize it until he didn't see me. Duh! Anyway, I'll find something that I love by Justin Trevino, because he's the "old country" in the best and purest sense.

No problem! I highly recommend the albums "Tonight! In Person" and "Slightly Fabulous Limeliters." They are leaps and bounds better live than in the studio. The banter the bassist comes up with in between songs is unmatched.

My wife put on the country music awards. Some dude in a green jacket was on stage with a beer. Or rather, a fake beer mug. I'm calling it. Fake. Pretty sure it was one of those two wall mugs with yellow water in the middle.

No head. No lacing. No bubbles. The amount didn't go down after he took a few sips and in a side shot it looked like the mug was really empty. Like you could see it was liquid in between the walls. Weak.

I can't tell you how happy I am after clicking this.

I honestly thought I would going to see links to Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban videos. Or one of the 345987345872345 new "country" songs about how cool it is to be a redneck.

Motorcycles are cool.


I know they aren't all old classics, but neither am I

Here's a song I remember waking up to while visiting my great-grandmother in Fort Davis, TX.

I'm in the wrong thread. I dont like country music in general, old or new, but I do enjoy Buffett, and more recently, SOME Kenny Chesney, and Zach Brown types when they are singing sun, sand, and summer. They find their way on the mix with some Marley when we head to the Cape for our summer vaca.

My favorite is "Loved ma sister in ma truck" by Chet Yoklin. Those dulcet tones get me every time.
