Excellent choices! A big shiny star for you.
You're right, not even the tip of the iceberg.
Johnny Cash is one that's hard to put in a category. He's done country and a bit of rock. I think he's also shaped rockabilly. I've heard that he also could be called folk but I don't know about that.

ETA: I don't believe I've ever heard The Mavericks before. Thanks for turning me onto this band.



Actually country music has influenced many musicians .

How many of you knew Led Zeppelin had a country hit?





And let's not forget the Rolling Stones. This got a lot of playtime on country channels the twang is unmistakable .

I can't believe I never heard that one before. For some reason it reminds me of Me and Bobby McGee.

Slightly off topic: A friend of mine listens to mostly thrash or death metal. He was on my ass once because I got a Johnny Cash CD. I told him that the guys he listens to most likely listened to country, too. He laughed at the idea of it. Well, he got a Cannibal Corpse DVD and was watching the documentary part. The band members are naming their influences and going through their music collections. There was a lot of Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and one even played a Hank WIlliams, SR. song. It was My Bucket's Got a Hole in it. I looked over at him and laughed my ass off and said, "See, I told you." "Shut up," he said and pouted for about an hour lol.

That's true. I find most of my new stuff here on ATS that other members posted. I have to say that people here have great taste.

I had a rather loud discussion with quite a few friends over that topic .

We ended up realizing that almost all modern music found its roots from country music or gospel . Even gangster rap go back and listen to some of the old country balance same style the new music just has a louder and quicker beat. I introduced one of my black friends to meatloaf and he can't get enough of him .

Oh, man, I love Meatloaf's music. I can't pick just one to be a favorite.

I love outlaw music !

Actually my music tastes span just about every genre, but for me outlaw music is right up there alongside hardcore rock and roll as a regular 'go-to' when the mood strikes.

Here's a few good tunes that nobody has posted yet:

How did I forget copperhead road ????


I think Jerry Reed mixed the boundaries between a rock and country. when I was young I absolutely loved him because you can hear the enjoyment he gets out of performing in his voice while he singing .




This is a country song in the style of country. It is also one of the funniest songs I know.

Yup, Wild Turkey is a nice sipping bourbon. I haven't had a bottle of that stuff in years.


Here's the ultimate Lynyrd Skynyrd song (for me anyways) to go with that Wild Turkey... the world lost Ronnie Van Zant way way too early:

Unless I missed it, I didn't see Waylon Jennings. When I hear this song I think about today's country. I don't think Hank would have done it this way.

This song makes me want to drink.
