Country Music

You are looking at the two of the greatest singers country music has ever seen, Merle Haggard and George Jones. They, along with the likes of Conway Twitty and others, represent what real country music is supposed to be. Unfortunately, most of today's music isn't really country, simply isn't very good, or both. On the other hand, a few people still put out some good material on a fairly consistent basis, to provide some relief from those who don't.

Classics and Good Older Stuff

Classics from the Legends

Merle Haggard

With Merle having so many great songs, picking out only a few is difficult. Thus, I will only name some of my favorites.

George Jones
Conway Twitty
Ray Price

I think more Ray Price Songs have been redone than any other artist's.

Other Classic Songs

Some "Recent" Classics

New Stuff, Good and Bad

The best current songs as of 1/29 are:
  1. "Busy Man"- Billy Ray Cyrus
  2. "No Place That Far"- Sara Evans
  3. "Wish You Were Here"- Mark Wills(this is a killer! great tearjerker!)
The worst are:
  1. Alan Jackson's new one, whatever the name is. He can't buy a good song(see below).
  2. "That Don't Impress Me Much"- Shania Twain. Sorry, this totally sucks. "What do you think you're Elvis or something?" What crap.

Any one have a suggestion for one of the lists? - Drop me a line
