POP OR COUNTRY WHAT FRIGGIN' DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? IF YOU LIKE PURE COUNTRY GO TO A BAR AND SEE IT.. THIS IS A "FEST" CALLED STAGECOACH... NOWHERE DO YOU SEE THE WORD COUNTRY!!! GET OVER THE NAME LABELS AND JUST ENJOY THE MUSIC! THIS AIN'T RAP MUSIC WERE FIGHTING ABOUT!
Sorry I haven't logged on in a while but my grandson hasn't been around lately to help me. sirpippen is about the only sane one on this board. I suppose I may have come on a bit strong but it's only because I am very passionate about this subject. I should probably just give up and let you kids have your fun. Just please DON'T CALL IT COUNTRY!!! It's hard rock and you know it. Go ahead and smoke your pot and listen to Brooks and Dunn. This country is going to hell anyway! I MISS HARRY TRUMAN!!!!
yeah and true Rock n Roll is only about THe four tops and Fats Domino. Get a life angerball and learn the music develops and most people do. CLimb back in the trailer and have some turkey and go to bed
I saw B & D in October @ The Gibson on Citywalk in Hollywood. AWESOME SHOW. I am a Hurricane Katrina transplant here and I am here to tell you that B & D stepped to the plate and gave ALOT to my family, friends and neighbors in Mississippi. For that I will always be grateful. This concert will be my 21st seeing B & D!!!!!!!
[QUOTE=angerball;1189]I suppose I can allow that you kids want some variety and some more modern sounding music. I understand. It was like that back in my day. That's why I think it's perfectly acceptable to enjoy the stylings of Bob Wills or even the Hoosier Hot Shots.
Talk about kids, my husband is 65 (I'm 50) and he totally disagrees with you.
I never listened to country before I met my husband. I love country music as it is today and as it was in the past. I may not know the names of all the artists you have mentioned, but believe me I listen to the old stuff as well as the new stuff.
My husband has said it like it is, "I like to listen to my country music live." When you get your festival going with Ernest Tubbs, etc. he would love to buy tickets. In the meantime we will listen to the artists of today. (Who, by the way, honor country music artists of the past.) Any idea how he can buy tickets to your concert without dying first?
Music in all genres evolves as has country music. By the way, the "new stuff" is no where near being " hard rock" as you have described it. Country still imparts a sense of family and morality that "hard rock" does not.
My children are adults, but if they weren't, I would still expose them to today's country music as much as I would "yesterdays" country music. Just because you don't think it "true" country doesn't mean it's wrong.
Today's country music has brought more people to appreciate yesterday's country music more than ever. Did you ever think about that?
Thank heaven we have a new country music station in Southern California with DJs like Shawn Parr that appreciate the grass roots of country music and play a mix of everything rather just the "new" stuff. Hooray for Go Country 105.1 FM. If not for them, country music as it was and it is now would be dead in Los Angeles.
