Country music is`nt for everyone I guess,I don`t think it`s as bad as people seem to think.
I don`t follow that achey brakey stuff either but I guess I wonder where the line gets drawn between mainstream and alternative country;I like the alt country stuff but not convinced on the new country stuff.
Johnny Cash does`nt remind me of new country,I find him pretty cool,very open minded in the last few years to cover songs by Glenn Danzig,Soundgarden,Nick Cave,etc.
most people his age would not be singing tunes by those guys!
There`s this tune by the Bottlerockets and the opening lines are"She likes Dinosaur Jr.,she don`t know why,she says `if you like country music man you deserve to die"
