Because Country songs require a level of concentration. I love the stories told in country songs. Good ol' folk music. Sadly, most people these days like their music with no " moral of the story" bologna crap! I say that in the nicest way possible.

Everyone hates country music? Apparently you've never lived in Nashville or Austin.

I like Outlaw Country, the poppy stuff that populates the airwaves can go to hell though.

Theoretically, despite the lyrics, I hate songs that use same chord for 8 bars continuously, and some country music have it.

I agree with the posters that mentioned outlaw country. There is a lot of really good "country" music that you just don't get to hear on CMT or your local country station. It's a shame real country music doesn't get airplay anymore. But good stuff is out there if you look for it. Zoe Muth, The Honeycutters, Heather Myles, John Howie, Jr are just a few that still write and play real country.

because it's unoriginal, has no creativity, and it all sounds the same. it's a lot like rap in many ways. all the songs are about the same thing over and over and over, ....money, cars, and women. lol it's ironic.....you can make money, get cars and women simply by just singing about getting money, cars, and women... who would have thought it could be so easy? but country takes the other road that runs parallel.

I loved country music in the 50's and 60's, but lost touch with it as I grew older. Recently, I bought Johnny Reid's Fire It Up album and like it a lot. He's classified as a country singer, but I find it more like pop than anything. Regardless of what genre it is, he's doing very well for himself.

Great list. I like a lot of them as well, or at least did back in the day. Floyd Cramer was an amazing composer and piano player. Another guy who's similar is Frank Mills.
