I went to the Music forum and went through the first four pages. There was not one thread about country music. So what the hell here we go .



Here’s a ballad




Can’t say country music without including Willie ask Toby Keith .




These guys were the traveling Wilburys of country music. Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings .

I'm not real big on most country music but there are some gems.

I was a big fan of Staind and I think Aaron Lewis is just as talented with country music. This link is Aaron performing a great version of Chris Stapleton's awesome song Whiskey And You.

Outstanding rendition!

Love all the tunes you posted and have posted a fair number of country songs in various threads. I like how you call the Highway Men the travelling Wilburys of country. Have posted quite a few of their tunes as well.

Hoyt Axton is another fav of mine, and JJ.Cale is more of a southern cajun blues genre, some of his stuff is considered country by some.

cause country music sucks balls.

for the most part and of course just IMO

a johnny cash cover of nine inch nails does not qualify as country.

i like the old stuff like johnny cash early #.
more like rockabilly i suppose

there are little gems sprinkled in that i like but for the most part im just not into it.

interesting factoid about the highwaymen though. one of the best guitarists of all time, mr shawn lane played on a few of their tracks. he was doing session work in nashville when they cut the record.

johnny was awesome.

for the most part it just does not do it for me


bluegrass though??

whole different thing

That was cool deep voice goes hand-in-hand with country music .

Jerry reed is under estimated for his talent. I’m pretty sure this was a 9 string guitar but I might be wrong .

Have a listen he could play a guitar like a banjo .

Most of the new wave of performers calling themselves Country are actually country pop, so that may be a reason. I cannot stand that junk.
Real Country (& Western) is Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr & Jr, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Charlie Daniels, Jonny Horton, Patsy Cline, and a few others (IMHO).
I like the old stuff.
Dont know why we dont see those other than nobody likes them or knows them.
It's a brave New World lol.
Also Johnny Cash covering Nine Inch Nails is definitely not country.

I love bluegrass as well, and lots of country music has bluegrass type riffs in it.

Lots of music is a cross over of different styles.

This one is a classic.

Bro country did a number...drug Nashville through the mud. It's Max Martin sterile, country flavored, pop music.

Basically what he said.
What you posted are good tunes and real country... most modern country is just pop music with a mandalin... if you have the time check out this song/video, Bo nails it and explains it better than i ever could.

Country has been totally neutered. More guns, more ladies, more whiskey, more fighting, more outlaws are needed.

If you guys don’t think hurt is a country song despite covering for 9 inch nails. I don’t even know how to reply ?

But just to win favor .



Willie sang with kid rock does that make him not country ? Everybody wants to sing with Willie not Willie wants to sing with everybody take a look at the guitar .

I used to like going to the country music bars....Oh wait, I went there because of the women when I was single. I can't remember off hand if I actually liked country music.

im sure youve seen this guy then. i was tying to find his performance of green light girl from that same crossroads.

if you did not pay attention you should.

this is doyle bramhall II. he plays lefty but strings upside down the the high E is on top. High E is supposed to be on the bottom.

he is fantastic. came up in the same house, literal actual house with stevie ray vaughn and jimmy vaughn.

you should check him out

Now this is country, not the nasal twang pop that masquerades as "country"
