Good stuff Paul! I grew up on it. Momma and Dad were young and went out to honky-tonks a lot. Man, could they dance, and cut a mean polka for a couple "white folks" ! Saw many a dance floor dusted with cornmeal, and a few fights too.

Imagine my surprise, and great disappointment, upon seeing the movie "E.T." and finding not one scene with Ernest Tubb.

I have too many favorites to start naming but this one is near the damned top!

Not a huge country fan but not a hater either. I do like some Johnny Cash and a few other classics when I am in the mood.



My current favorite and a fine message.....

CMA Fest was on the TV the other night so I tuned in part way through … all I can say is WTH???

I know country music evolves over time but I didn't think I'd been that long out of listening range. New country ain't for me it sounds like.

Here's some old timey country music:

Bluegrass, Alison Krauss, Classic Rock up to about 1985.

Oh yea, and BAGPIPE and Drums!

Classic Southern gospel groups like the Happy Goodman Family. Vestal Goodman was the one lady that Johnny Cash, Elvis, and George Jones could all go to in times of their greatest troubles.

Might as well have both, in this case all three, pipes, drums, and Amazing Grace!

I was on the floor, had a floor seat, during this performance, it rocked your very soul!

There was a lot of good C/W that came out of Nashville in the seventies. A lot better tunes than we see these days, IMHO.

Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P. Nunn and Tom Paul Glasser. I'm not even from Texas and those guys were on my list a long time ago. I also listen to Celtic music and Mozart.

Johnny and Jack

Man, I love Johnny and Jack! They did so many cool songs. I just received one of their collections in today's mail:

https://www.amazon.com/Poison-Love-J...ohnny+and+jack

Johnny Wright was married to the "Queen of Country Music", Kitty Wells. His singing partner, Jack Anglin, was killed in a car crash on his way to Patsy Cline's funeral. Now how about that for a classic country story!

https://www.allmusic.com/artist/john...5537/biography

Johnny and Jack were among the first country artists to incorporate "latin" sounds in their songs. Here's a great example of that:

"Poison Love" 1951

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUgNiiWWmDo

There is still great country music being made and played. It's true that you won't hear much of it on Top 40 Country radio these days. Or the ol' Back 40 either for that matter (for you Parrotheads out there). Oh, one will hear a gem now and again on the radio but most of that "New Country" is just not good to my ears, and it certainly ain't the Country & Western music I grew up loving and still do.

I remember seeing the bar holding up JJ Walker more than once years ago at a club called "Castle Creek" in Austin. But he is/was a really good songwriter. Good call!

See what you think of this rendition of Mozart's piano Sonata #11 in A Major, Third Movement: Rondo "Alla Turka":

Bob Wills is still the King!

There are lot's of great guitar players in Austin, and Texas in general. But Junior Brown just has to be rated near the top. The guys is an incredible player, and so much more than his "taco shell" cowboy hat might imply.

Huge Chris Stapleton fan. Grew up with Eddie Rabbit and Johnny Cash being sung to me by my dad. Love it to this day.

Zac Brown is awesome too, for the new breed. Saw him and his band the other week at Citifield in Queens, NYC and it was awesome. Tens of thousand American patriots. The parking lot scene was awesome. Zac & Co segued from “Enter Sandman” by Metallica to a Beasties Boys song. I know, sounds goofy but for an 80’s kid?

I listen to country, classical or metal, depending on my mood and what I want to get done.

That was cool. Thank you for sharing. One doesn't usually associate the banjo and the guitar with Mozart.

Hell of a brass section.
That's the truth! Whenever they played Kansas City, Count Basie's band members usually went by to see them perform. Bob's big band was probably the most versatile band in the United States at the time. Although Wills is often called the "The King of Country Music", his music and style owed maybe even more to jazz music. Damn, I love hearing them!

Here's a good biography of Bob Wills. I know I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A little truck driving music?

Disclaimer: My wife utterly hates this song...how can that be? My son calls it Momma hated Momma hated diesels...

"Momma hated diesels so bad". Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen

It sounded even better live in the Armadillo! I think...

Thanks for that kris! I always liked NRPS! Saw them at the ol' 'Dillo too. Ah, my misspent (or is that wellspent...nah, prolly not) youth. There used to be a veterinarian in my hometown who claimed he wrote "Truck Drivin' Man" while going to vet school. He was a country singin' SOB, could sound so much like the Possum that his "theme" song was "Walk Through this World With Me"

He formed a Country and Western band with five of my good friends, all good musicians. They rehearsed in the dining room of his house in the country. Their one and only gig was at a club in Brownwood Texas, the Flagship Lounge. He had them billed as "The Cowboy and the Five Hippies" Without him, they later opened Cameron's Folk Fete in 1974 as "The Cosmic Cowboys". I was the MC who introduced them that night.

His name was John Ryan and he is the second from the left in this pic, taken that night in Brownwood. Believe it or not, all those other guys are still alive. He unfortunately isn't. And yes, they did a fine version of "Walk Through This World With Me"

They kept me out of the country, late sixties through mid 80's, missed that band, thanks!

And WTF is wrong with Johnny Horton, Slim Whitman, and Sons of the Pioneers?

I’ll add to that Tennessee Ernie Ford, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, Hank Snow, and Eddie Arnold.

And I didn’t say “Sr” because there was only ONE real Hank Williams.

Dating myself big time here....


I've been from Tucson to Tucumcari, Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I'll be willin'... to be movin'

Ahh heck, you linked to it,.
My favorite Little Feat song of all time. Hamburger Midnight ain’t bad, either.

Why just one when you can enjoy both, like father like son!
