Maybe it's because of what I grew up listening to with my dad in his truck (on our way to and from cleaning stalls at the horse barn he helped at wink ), but I love all the big country stars of the '90s, like Garth Brooks, Diamond Rio, Brooks and Dunn...

For country music I listen to Billy Currington, Blake Shelton, The Pistol Annies, and Jason Michael Carroll. I also love Johnny Cash which is old school. Jamie Johnson is great to. I am a child of the 80's so most of the time I am still listening to rock and hair bands from that era. silly

Not a real country fan but if push comes to shove I like Trisha Yearwood and her better half Garth Brooks.

I love 90's country! It's what I grew up with, listening to it in my grandparents kitchen. Good memories! A while back I found a station on Sirius Satellite Radio that only played 90's country. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Unfortunately, our subscription has since lapsed and it's back to the modern stuff they play now on our local radio station that I have such a hard time enjoying.

I'm not into "new country" at all. But I like classics and I REALLY like Charly Pride. I have most of his albums and even got to see him in concert. To me, this is country music.

I am a country music fan. In fact, it is the only music I really listen to. I like both the old and the new country. Right now I am a big Darius Rucker fan. We saw him in concert last August and he was great!

I was *just thinking* of Darius too! laugh So much of his music reminds me of the stuff I grew up with, in the late 70s and 80s, lyrics-wise anyway...but he has a good infusion of current sound without striking a wrong chord (ha! music humor wink )

I love him too. The OP was looking for modern artists. Anyway Hank 3 is pretty traditional - he despises country-pop.

Our 26-year old son just discovered that Led Zepplin's "In Through the Out Door" was more of a country album. He heard the song "Hot Dog" from the album, while listening to the morale drive in Afghanistan. He emailed to ask if his Dad knew about this...funny thing, I guess he never realized that that was the album he was listening to all those years at home...one of his Dad's favorites.

Our family is very classical bassed BUT my DH2 has a wide collection of everything. I am not sure they count in a country sort of way be he has all the cds from that Canadian group that performs at Epcot.

Otherwise, when asking DH, sitting next to me on his computer, he replied, "No artists, but songs." which makes sense since as a choral conductor, songs from groups or names will pop up. Garth Brooks tends to be used often ("The River" "The Dance")
and the song "I Hope You Dance" are big at memorials and graduations, (and yes, they have had to do memorials for students who have passed and these pop up).

I tend to only like country music when I'm drunk, but the winners of this season's "The Sing Off" really impressed me. They're called Home Free. They're a 4 man acapella country group.

Got to say that country isn't really my thing, more rock. But my guilty pleasure is........ Johnny Cash. Got lots of his albums, live, old, new(er) so a pretty big collection. I also so have one, just one Dolly Parton song, Jolene. You can beat it.

If it isn't old school country, I barely listen to it.

Dolly, Reba, Lori Morgan, Tanya Tucker, Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette and Barbara Mandrell are my fav Ladies.

Men: Johnny Cash, Garth, George Straight, Merle, Waylon, George Jones and Conway Twitty.

Give me old school anytime.

and then there is David Allen Coe. "I was drunk...the night my mama...got out of prison...." mickey It has it all. Trains, mama, drunk, pick up trucks. A perfect country and western song, says Mr. Coe.

If you're really looking for newer country, this time if year is perfect to get into it because they'll be putting out all their summer party songs. They all sound similar, but I love those songs about bonfires, lake parties, and all those fun things we look forward to here in the Midwest! awesome

Well, maybe their Scots disguised as Canadians.... since they use bagpipes and all that. Off Kilter is the name and they are quite good, or as my DH says, "They don't hurt my ears with twisted vowels and r's that never end."
As I said, son has all the CDs and I imagine if there is a new one out it will go into the Christmas gift purchases!

True, True. But I love the inclusion of bagpipes.

This is a running joke in my family. When my father (now 80) is ticking off my mother (almost 80), she just says, "If you keep this up, there will be bagpipes at your funeral." (My father HATES bagpipes and my mother loves them.

Besides, despite the "countries of the world showcase" at Epcot, I still feel like it's just Disney with some flair. It's why my son hears a cool accent and approaches them and politely asks where they are from, or when any of my three men hear German, they reply to them (albeit, not always fast or good), and if they hear French they ask me what the people are saying (like I remember from French class 40 yrs ago). It's where a bagpipe in Canada reminds me of a Scotsman I know here! laugh
