It's National Country Music Day

Other than the obvious that it's the 4th of July (Independence Day), it's also National Country Music Day.  Please don't throw stones, but country music really isn't my thing.  I'm more into alternative rock and contemporary Christian tunes.

If I had to listen to Country Music, I'm more about the older styles.  I'm talkin' Kenny Rogers, Reba McEntire, Alabama, and George Strait.  I could listen to Johnny Cash all night long. (My husband, on the other hand, would rather eat a barrel of slugs than listen to Johnny.)

I grew up with a step-father who played bass guitar in a country band.  That was back in the day, so I was always around the old country sounds.  I attended his shows on several occasions and always had a good time.  I think that's why the older country croons are what I'm in tune to.

What's your favorite genre of music?  Have a favorite country singer?

I didn't used to like country music - my dad would play Johnny Cash non-stop when I was growing up (I think the thing that 'ruined' it for me at the time was he'd sing along...and a singer he is not. ;) ) But my best friend loved country music and got me hooked in the 90's - I still have an eclectic music taste, though, because I love all genres of music (but when it comes to country music, I prefer New Country) and the only kind of music I'm not a fan of is head beater rock or rap. But everything else - crank it up! :)

I love all kinds of music. As far as country, like you, I prefer the older stuff! I saw Garth Brooks in concert years and years ago. We listened to George Strait in high school.

I love R&B, but country is good too. I like both the old and new country music. Dolly Parton & Reba are two of my favorites.
