    Who loves it? Who does not like it? Who got no idea what it is?

    I usually get strange looks when I say I love country music…

    I love country music! I have Sirius radio in my car & it’s constantly tuned to Highway. I also get a lot of flack, when people find out.

    The deep male vocals can sure make a sweet sound combined with a warm acoustic guitar…just love country.

    @quintusvw I love the heavy influence the blues has in a lot of country songs. Not so much the words, but the feel & the energy.

    I think it’s so much more substantial on so many levels than pop music is.

    That is exactly what I think…I can’t really call this other noise music (I might get quite a bit of flak for that one) but everybody has their own preference.

    The simpler the better. Just a guitar is good enough for me.

    @quintusvw I hear ya. And don’t get me started on hip hop & techno. I know it’s popular, just not my thing.

    But that’s what makes us all individuals, right? I guess on some level it is a great thing that there are so many genres so that so many people can get involved in music in some way, either active or passive.

    I live near Nashville so I can truthfully say I don’t like most new country, it just sounds like pop, but give me some johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and I’m happy!

    Too bad the horrible music sometimes gets the most attention…

    @zeitaliesin Have you been to the Johnny Cash museum in Nashville? Very cool place to visit.

    Country is my favorite genre, but I don’t get weird looks since I live in the deep south. My fiance plays the blues, but is also lead guitarist in a modern country band in Memphis. Last week they opened for Big & Rich. Montgomery Gentry the week before that. Lucy Hale back in the summer. Always a fun time!

    @caylalayman Ah, a true country patriot then. Such a delight.

    I guess then that the people local to you share the music with great enjoyment.

    I’d love to say so, but probably not. ;) They’re fairly local in and around Memphis. Here’s their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/randyleeonline

    @caylalayman They will be soon! I listened to Friday Nights. I really like it, they have a sound that is “in” right now. It’s only a matter of time.
