Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

I don't have a collection of vids. That's why I asked for one.

"Where's the man in black?" implies you know exactly who you're asking about.
I know who it is. So do you.

I'm a Cash and Haggard fan. Patsy Cline too (what a voice).

(I did get naked with one of Johnny Cash's granddaughters, though.
I guess that's about as country music lovin as I get?)

I highly highly recommend this album.

Mainstream country blows but Alt Country is great. Also really like the Bakersfield shit from the 70s. And Cash, Willy and Hank.

i think there's a line somewhere where some country/folk/alternative music becomes a bit blurred and people like something that could be labelled as country but is labelled as something else. i'm not a typical country fan at all, but every once in a while i hear something that i like that is pretty close to what i think is country style music.

for me, a good example of a song like that is this:

i fully admit i listened to a ton of (radio) country in the last year driving between SE BC and SW Alberta…i guess "bro country" is/was an emerging thing now. some of it almost seems hip-hop influenced. some of it is kinda catchy but eventually gets annoying.

anyways, kacey musgraves has good stuff, she isn't on the radio too much.

Never sure where the boundaries of what is and isn't country are but I really like the DBT / Jason Isbell stuff

Steve Earle's kid had a good album a couple of years back too.

I like a lot of stuff that's categorized as "Americana" which is definitely country and folk influenced. I might start my own "Americana" band and call it, in honor of NSMB, "Farmer Mountain Biker." I Majin that!

Emmylou Harris "Wrecking Ball" album was good.
