even though i dont care for country i have to admit i like some of the old stuff like johnny cash.
Johnny is a genre all his own !
That being said, I'm sure Hank Williams Sr. rolls over in his grave every time he hears the modern genre referred to as country.
in his day it was known as Country & Western, a whole different genre than what the push out today.
Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Eddie Arnold, Conway Twitty... that's old school stuff.
The Eagles used to be on rock stations, now they are played on country stations.. same with CCR and Lynard Skynard.
i don't like so much the pop stuff being sold as country. i don't mind the music just how they sell it. cross-over they call it, when it's top 40 pop. *shrugs*
so, it's not dead. just sold out.
