I was a huge fan of Country Music at one point in my life.  It was honest music.

I still like it, when it's done well...but it rarely is.

Here's Gary Stewart, one on the best goddamned C&W artists to ever come down the pike.

Country Music, when it was damned good,bridged a gap between what was damned good and what was damned sad.   It was Blues a different vernacular.

T for Texas...T for Tennessee

You can put up your dukes....

Waylon...Baby...Waylon.  Can't imbed, but follow the link for goodness.

If you find yourself in a Country bar...the jukebox ain't worth a goddamned if if doesn't have this song:

I can't be myself when I'm with you.....

What a fantastic song....but if you can find Steve Young's's even better

But here's some some Steve Young...Don't Think Twice

Some more Waylon.....

If You don't like Country've never really heard good Country Music.  Not the real deal, anyway. When it's honest, and's a pretty good genre.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
