It’s OK To Like Country …

Published on

Now, there are some people that’ll tell you that they don’t like Country music…are they mad? Well, maybe not, but they are just a little confused. They think Country music is all Jim Reeves, Slim Whitman and ladies with big hair singing about D.I.V.O.R.C.E… and while there’s nothing at all wrong with that it is possible to see why you don’t relate to it.

With more people from Europe and from around the world visiting America every year there are converts joining the Country music fan club every year. In America it’s no longer necessary to live in the South to be a country music fan…even if you don’t see yourself as an ‘Urban Cowboy’. So wherever you are It’s OK To Like Country…

The fact is there is a wealth of classic Country music, from yesterday and today that is just fantastic. Take current country hit-maker, Luke Bryan whose ‘Kill the lights’ is a great record…and a big hit. There’s others from among the modern singers like, Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Billy Currington, Keith Urban, Roseanne Cash, and Toby Keith who are all fantastic singers and in some cases, songwriters too.

Taking a trip back into Country music history throws up names of legendary artists. There’s Johnny Cash, of course, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Glen Campbell, Rick Nelson, Loretta Lynn…and many more

These artists and many others feature on our exclusive, It’s OK To Like Country playlist. Come and explore for yourself…

      Think…If it is Country it is shit. It is feces? Don’t defecate on Country. Think about your poor choice of grammar.

      If it isn’t Country it it is something else!

    While I can’t say I like very much of the modern country, the old country is great — Hank, Lefty, Merle, Waylon. Kris. Tammy, Emmylou, Patsy, Loretta, and others were what country is all about in my opinion.

    I am Jamaican and I love Country and Bluegrass Music. I love the sweet sound of the fiddle and the haunting sound of the steel guitar. Tammy Wynette, Shelly West and Rhonda Vincent are my favorites

    Wouldn’t have it even if you gave it away. About 20 decent songs and the remainder is crap. Make an Album of real country stars and their greatest hits. Roger Lavoie and Rioraton answered
    In true country style.

    I grew u with Country & Western music, and even got to know some of the West Coast artists. Visiting México, I find that a lot of teenagers are “into” “Con-Tree”, probbly prompted by borrowing by their Norteño, and Ranchero artists.
