Hey! Y'all like country?


country music.jpg

Bakersfield? Buck Owens? What?

Gotta have a train song

Some serious booze, like a Whiskey River

I guess it's time for Willie and some of his friends

Trucks, needs a trucker song

Weed, whites and wine? Unimaginable profligacy

Gamblers, and shoot-em-ups, west Texas cowboys, too

Shoot-em-ups? Yeah, isn't it really a all salute to Gary Cooper?

So, I guess, maybe, the ultimate, or el perfecto, as it were

~fini~

This is, of course, an open thread

Although I find I don't like too much country since it turned into white gangster rap with pickup trucks. (I slightly exaggerate, but it has the same "look at me, I'm rich and famous" mentality these days.)

On the other hand, there some I do like, although I admit it falls more into "Bluegrass"

I do not pretend I know what I do not know.

That whole show is available as a CD and on YouTube where you'll find both a short version, 1 hr. 56 min. and a long version, 3 hr. 53 min.

@detroitmechworks for people who hate/fear blacks. Years ago there was a local rdio station calling itself "young country" which I proclaimed to be music for doo-doo kickers. Wink

And not just country-inspired rock either, I like the real deal. Bakersfield, of course, but also some mainstream country and just about anything with a G-run in it. My all-time favorite C&W album is probably this one.
Here's Merle from his later, jazz-inspired period. Great song.
