Nowwww you're talkin' !!
Cash was the man that brought attitude to the stage.
I was raised on mostly Classical & Big Band at home, with "pop radio" now & then.....and at my Nannys (Moms' Mom) it was Country, and Gospel on Sundays....spent so much time w/Nan that the Country stuck more than anything else i was raised on.
when I feel like Country, I usually go w/the "Outlaw" genre.....some of it is just so real.....so, gritty...
IMPO this is likely the baddest Country song ever done, and I was raised in 'Bama, so I knows some Country!
and, since you mentioned "JC"...
i just had to......
You won't hurt its feelings boy, play it like you stole it!
I'm a proud supporter of the A.S.P.C.A. and their "Guardian Angel" program.
Speaking up for those that can't speak for theirself,

As for British rockers being into country, my man Elvis Costello sure seems to have a deep appreciation for "old" American country music, seems like he's very into Americana type stuff... and does it very well, despite not having a twangy voice "The Living Elvis" is one of the greatest songwriters of my generation ...imho, of course

All they seem to do is strum!
Thanks for posting that video Willy, that was great!
Roy Clark and Vince Gill can tear up a fretboard pretty good too.

When our son was little, I would sing this to him to put him to sleep. Poor kid. It probably warped him for life.
Now, I think it would be fun to play a whole set about Cadillacs and another whole set about trains, and rain, and prison, and mama, and...
Live to thump.

Agreed. Brad Paisley is incredible; from his clean technique, tastely phrasing, and tone control. Awesome player.
From reading this thread, it seems pretty obvious that many of the people who do not like country haven't really been exposed to it. I wish I could have a beer with you in front of iTunes! It's a big big genre covering everything from old school traditional to modern rock-influenced to blue grass and mountain music. There are some blue grass pickers that are astoundingly fast and tasteful.
Personally, I love blue grass and much of modern country. Jason Aldean is awesome. I just came back from his show in the Meadowlands... Do people still call it that?!
My girlfriend and I joke that all of the metal guitarists have found homes in country because it is the only guitar-based popular music anymore! There's truth to it as well; Aldean, Rodney Atkins, Luke Bryan, they all have hard rock backing bands.
