    Both of my parents always listened to country music, and I still like a little of that from long ago.

    I grew up during the disco era, and that was a lot of fun, but I am glad disco did die.

    Early on some of my first albums were AC/DC Back In Black, Van Halen, and Glen Cambell Rhinestone Cowboy.

    I was always all over the place with music growing up, but along with all the different rock, pop, metal, I always liked some country sometimes for a while.

    I always really liked Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys, Ronnie Milsap, and a few others.

    To this day, if I am relaxing and drinking beer, I can still listen to those old country songs for hours.

    Anyway, for a very long time I was only listening to Alternative Rock, and I prefer that now.

    But at times, I would be on vacation, and go to a karaoke bar, and someone would be doing something new I had never heard before, because I no longer listened to country music, but songs like My Town by Montgomery Gentry, and several others like Toby Keith, I always liked, and never heard them except for at those bars.

    I have always known that there are plenty of country radio stations in my area, I was just never interested, and I am still not interested.

    The whole reason that I am typing all of this, is because I have found that some current country is actually pretty good.

    My girlfriend of 6 years has always been into country, and I tried, but I could not change her. But after I seen that she likes some of the new music I like, I started giving her a chance to expose me to some new country.

    Most of the songs that she liked was a swing and miss for me, but when Luke Combs came around, for whatever reason I can get into his music.

    On Saturday nights up late drinking beer these days, we YouTube country for hours, and it is all good.

    My girlfriend thinks she has me changed over to country now, but I tell her, hell no! On a late Saturday night drinking beer, then yes, but if I am not drinking beer, I still can not handle country.

    I have always been fine with Alabama and a few older bands like that anyway, when drinking.

    Anyway, here is the first song, that has really won me over into listening to some current country music:

    I'm not a cw fan. But this guy is kind of a cross over. Great voice

    As far as the old country songs, this was always my favorite, even was played at the roller-skating rink when I was young, right between AC/DC and Van Halen songs.

    For country, give me the greats. George Jones. Merle. Hank. Willie. Lefty Frizzell. Waylon. I’ve given newer stuff a try but find it just sterile and watered down like most other modern pop.

    I spent most of my life hating country music but the last two or three years I've come around and now I love it. It may have to do with moving to an area where it's played 24/7. Saw Justin Moore live last month and Luke Bryan the month prior. Big fan of Hardy, Chris Stapleton, Parker McCollum, Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Morgan Wallen, etc.

    Been a huge Willie and Waylon fan all my life. Of course Cash, Kris, Merle.......all from the golden age when Country music was good. By the early 90's it was all over with.

    I’ll throw this one in the mix for a newer country song that I think is really good.

    Great voice, Staind is a great band, we've seen Lewis in concert 4 times, not a huge country fan, but he crosses over well

    Been listening to this song quite a bit lately.
    Lost one of our dogs over the summer and still not quite over it. This song hits pretty hard on that level.

    I’m out on Nashville county. Ugh. But the Red Dirt scene is where it’s at. I grew up with The Great Divide, Cross Canadian Ragweed and Pat Green. Y’all should check out Kenny Fiedler “Barrel Racer Land”. If you know any barrel racers, you realize just how true this song is. If you’ve ever dated one, you’ll have more love/hate flashbacks than any songs ever brought on.
