If only I were smart enough to post a you tube link...

Statler Brothers, Flowers on the Wall

counting flowers on the wall,
that don't bother me at all,
playing Solitaire til dawn,
with a deck of 51,
smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo,
now don't tell me I've nothing to do

Can't help but stop, listen and enjoy when this comes on-

+1 to the Cash, Coe, and Willie!

I have been lucky enough to catch Merle and George in concert the past couple of years, and they are still doing it right!
CW, thanks for your contributions to this thread. I've never heard of the singers you posted until .. you posted!

Gary Stewart.. what an old time classical country music voice!

a Biram show is definitly a PBR crowd. Although, the first time I saw him was in Austin and I was drinking Shiner Bock. And I just saw him last month in Missoula and he was drinking a Cold Smoke Sotch Ale

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and

Here's a song I remember waking up to while visiting my great-grandmother in Fort Davis, TX.
Great job urbanmyth! That is certainly taking it back a few years. I graduated highschool the year he passed on but remember hearing this song once or twice growing up.

Barneygumble maybe you posted in the wrong thread but I'm sure glad you did! What a great music video. Thank you!

Thanks Dawnhulio. Great songs!

Willie Nelson performs "Me and Paul" at the Farm Aid concert in Louisville, Kentucky on October 1st, 1995. Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers. Dave Matthews joined Farm Aid's board of directors in 2001.

I am a huge country music fan, and it means a lot to me. Unfortunately it has become a diluted, corporate ran, money machine pumping out the same crap from people who know nothing about the real country, and the hardships of middle america (you know, the people they are supposedly singing about). Just throw in a few keywords: pickup, dirt road, haybales, etc. and an electric guitar with a huge light show and you have a "country" song. Country has gone pop, and I think people are growing tired of it....... at least I have. I hope that country is where rock was in the late '80's early '90's and it will soon be cleaned out with a giant enema.

and as I step down off my soapbox here's a few more!

Eleven Hundred Springs is a great honky tonk band from texas, love em

Possessed by Paul James is another great act from texas. His last album was called "feed the family" cuz thats all he is trying to do. gotta respect that

and finally, one more OLDIE! I am a HUGE Hank Williams fan (in fact a fan of all III) but people often overlook Lefty Frizzell another huge innovator and influence on lots of my favorites like merle, George, and Willie

Very touching.

Thank you Yoop!
