i think it concluded with them all drinking beers and having a laugh about it.

who knew cowboys were real? anyways, if anybody knows who did that song, then please tell me, coz that choon was bloody hilarious! we would sing it as we cruised the hill!
can't agree more being an european. country music here is a myth

Is that why Richard Hammond always wears cowboy boots? Does it make you guys feel like a legend?

By the way, the modern cowboy is more like George W. Bush than the Marlboro Man. They have Caddy's instead of horses and wear suits, not chaps. The musicians all dress like the old iconic and almost extinct "real" cowboy.

I like Hank williams 3, Golden Delicious, the Bad Livers, and the Drive By Truckers. anything else sucks. And no, Cash isn't country.

I find it mildly entertaining that people always love Cash and hate new country, since Cash was one of the first crossover pop country stars. Without him, Dolly Parton and a few others, country would probably either be dead, or still in it's outlaw phase.

Speaking of speaking of, if you like music at all, you should go buy Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger album. Not a particularly large fan of his, but this album will kill you.

There is Pop Country, Country, Country Western, and even Alt Country. All of these are different. The majority of what you hear on the "country" radio stations is pop country and I think its trash. I do like that International Harvester song however. Not sure who sings it.

Every music genre has way too many subgenres these days. Metal has, off the top of my head: thrash, speed,death,black,death/black,black/death(Not the same things...)/viking/swedish death metal/crossover/symphonic/power/neoclassical/stoner/grindcore/blastcore/brutal death/symphonic black/nsbm. To most people outside of metal it all more or less sounds the same.

Past say, 1950 when there really was a big difference between Country and Country Western, I'd say just about everything is more or less the same, just varying levels of pop influence. Everyone seems to be working off the Outlaw Country template. I don't see many people copying the Texas Playboys, for instance.

Country in general, I like. I have to say the new stuff today def is too popish. I got into it listening to older Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, etc artists. Too many of the newer guys and gals try to act like rock stars or pops stars than country artists nowadays, annoying.

I know a lot don't classify Toby as country, but if they were there back when he started, he was country then more contrast to now. But even now his music imo is still good depending on the songs. I went to one of his concerts last year, and he is by far, the best performer I've ever seen. He gets people involved, has a lot to show for, good humor, effects, and music all around. Good times, as one of his songs is titled, lets get drunk and be somebody!
