    Old Country vs. New Country

    OK, so I'm an old fart. I'm sitting here listening to music, and after I played a Collective Soul CD, I went to Hank Williams Sr. When I was a kid, back in the '60s, Country music was Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, etc. Do you prefer "real" country music, or modern country music?
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Both, but then again, I listen to anything. I like just about all types of music, it is just particular songs I don't like.

    Since I started listening to country in the 90's, I'd have to say "new" country. Other than the random Alabama, Johnny Cash, or Charlie Daniels classic tune, I'm not a huge fan of classic country.

    Old Country but I listen to Bluegrass more than Country. Then again I listen to Classical more that anything.

    As far as the Country genre goes, I will listen to just about anything from the classics such as you mentioned to todays sound. Although I get a bit more selective as the music gets newer.

    I absolutely love Johnny Cash. Willie Nelson is good too at times, but other then that I really don't listen to much classic country. If i listen to country its usually George Strait, Gary Allan, Toby Keith and Cash. However, Metal-core is my favorite genre...

    George Jones is my favorite singer of all time.
    I also like Merle, Willie, Waylon, and my dad tells me that if it wasnt for Conway Twitty I would not be here

    I gotta go with all George Strait here. I have a major love obsession with him. I do like some of the new country music. I don't really care for the older music like what you're talking bout.
    May you rest in peace Daddy and may you never hurt again. I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you again.
