For country music and related topics. Please no people coming in here and rapping or whatever. Its nothin against rap, but you wouldn't want anyone to recite country in the rap thread. If this thing lasts, there will inherantly be a political debate of some sort. Just don't do it. Not all people who listen to country are Republicans, I'm not, but I love country. Just like there are conservative people who can appreciate Rap. End of anything political in this thread. On to the music. What is you favorite song playing right now? For me it is hands down. "She's a Hottie" by Toby Keith is #1 right now and has been since the first time I heard it. Others I like are "Back When I Knew it All" by Montgomery Gentry and anything by Taylor Swift. That girl can write a good song, and she sings them unflawed. Plus, she is a goddess...haha

"Yo, it's all ghetto in gear higher, the floor settle
More metal for beef that we don't let the law settle
I try to navigate the treacherous waters of
America's ghettos that set up the slaughteres
But there's more of us
Although we speak in different languages
We all pretty familiar with what anger is
Young and dangerous, ???
Get up on some gangsta ****
Guns to bang ya wit'
And we put it on records to entertain ya wit'
I'm grownin' pains way deeper than Mike Seaver's
Our uniforms is white sneakers and white T-shirts
On top of wife beaters
We like to light reefers
The 'hood need us for rappers, just ain't the right leaders
I put a lot into it
This is my product and I gotta move it
Stop the industry but you can't stop the music"


Awesome tune!!! ;)

Hey Eagles, what would be a good album to... "get".. right now?

I'm out of touch with what's good right now, i just find myself listening to the same music i've... "gotten".

I'm a fan of Toby Kieth so maybe i'll.. "get".. his latest album

Thats exactly what I was going to suggest actually. My buddy has Shock'n Y'all and I heard it. Absolutely amazing. All the songs are good, though there are two that have no shot at making it to the radio. Not because of quality, but because of content. Those songs are "The Taliban Song" (incredible) and "Smokin' with Willie" (more incredible). I recommend Shock'n yall for sure.

I really love Miranda Lambert's new song, "Gunpowder and Lead." It's got a great sound and fantastic lyrics.

And have you heard the Sugarland-Little Big Town-Jake Owen collaboration "Life in a Northern Town." I can't believe how much in harmony all of those different singers are in. Can't wait for it to come out on iTunes.

Gunpowder and Lead has been around for a while, but the radios pretty much ignored it until recently, but yeah, thats a great song, it actually compelled me to go out and by the CD (plus the fact that she aint to bad lookin either). Her speaking voice is so different from her singing voice thougfh. She honestly sounds like a mouse when she talks, but her voice when she sings is hearty and beefy for a woman. You know she's going out with Blake Shelton? Its been goin on for a while too. "Life in a Northern Town" Is also a favorite. I remember the first time I saw it on CMT I was simply put... in awe. It sounded perfect. Would you beleive that song was wrote by Paul Simon? It strikes you as odd at first, buyt once you think about it, it fits.

Yeah, I bought the CD in the first week and instantly gravitated to Gunpowder & Lead, and I'm glad it's getting some play.

I knew Life in a Northern Town was an update from an 80s(?) song, but Paul Simon? Haha, no idea!

I figured I'd try to help out a buddy. I've got a guy I know who is a country singer/songwriter, and I've heard a few of his songs, and I've got to say he is pretty damn good. He sings very well, and has a distinct voice, and his songwriting is very good. If your interested, check out Leechboy in myspace. The second e in "leechboy" may be an "a", I'm not sure though. Some of his songs are love songs, but most are a variety of different subjects. A few of the songs he wrote were being recorded for possible tracks on albums by Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley, so he isn't too far off, and anything could help.

More people should listen to Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers and Lucero. Both bands are amazing and while they both sway away from traditional country they still manage to incorporate country overtones into their music. I really suggest you all take a listen.

Some suggested songs for download:

Blue Collar Suicide ~ RCPM (as the Refreshments) ~ Fizzy Fuzzy
Contraband ~ RCPM ~ No More Beautiful World

ITs definitely something that I will look into when I get a chance. I'm not picky at all when it comes to music. I listen and appreciate all genres, and to be honest, it wouldn't matter at all what other genres they were mixed in with, because country is my favorite, and with my open-mindedness (is that even a word?, haha) it would be very hard for me not to like either of those bands. Anyone else you would recommend that maybe we don't know all that much about, fisch?

I love Kid Rock. His album "Cocky" was his best tho. On Rock and Roll Jesus, I like Amen the best.

Anything by Alan Jackson is great. My tops from have to be If Jesus Walked the Eart Today, Small Town Southern Man, All-american Country Boy, but nothing tops Where I come From. Right now that is the top song in Country music if you ask me, and trust me, its all I listen to.

Where I Come From- Alan Jackson
Beer for my Horses- Toby Keith (Favourite by him)
It's 5 O'clock Somewhere-Alan Jackson
Living in Fast Forward- Kenny Chesney
Two Pink Lines- Eric Church


Oh man, Brad Pailey as climbing up there for a while. His trio of Ticks, Online and Celebrity are easily his best 3 songs. Love em all.

I'm not trying to bust anyone's balls as Tony Soprano would say but I've always found it a little odd when people from the northeast are country music fans. Not that there's anything wrong with that, obviously you can listen to whatever you like. I just always thought and assumed that most of the stuff they sing about in country people from the northeast would have trouble relating to. I used to think country was really only popular in the south and maybe in the midwest but since then I've realized it has a lot more widespread appeal apparently. I mean I was born and raised in Texas and didn't really become a fan of country until a couple years ago. It's kinda funny cause I hated country growing up partly because I didn't want to be painted with the stereotype of being a redneck but now I listen to it a lot partly because I really don't like most of the new rock.

Lately, i think it has become increasingly easier for people to relate to Country music. Not a knock on artists these days, the music is still great, but it's no longer the same type of music it was before. Even then, i think just about anyone can listen to Garth Brooks and George Strait and really feel that music. And that's because they're still more of the old-school type of guys. If you've ever had love problems, you can relate to the majority of Country music.

Yeah that's true and I realized that when I actually started listening to country but I was talking a little more in terms of the country songs that are religious or pro war in nature.

And you're right about the lyrics. Country has a way bigger concentration on the lyrical aspect of it, as opposed to other music that has you paying attention to beats, bass lines, guitar solos, ___ solo's..

It's unfair to make a blanket generalization like that about country just like it would be to make a similar generalization about hip hop. I used to think just like you about country but when you actually listen to it longer than 5 minutes you see that's really not true.

I listen to pretty much only country, and for the most part, I prefer not to listen to hip hop or rap, but some of the lyrics that they write are just as good as country, granted its about completely different things, but you listen to an Eminem album and tell me that guy con't write a song, and I'll show you a person who is either (a) so close-minded that even the thought of anything different makes them want to explode or (b) someone who is oblivious to actual talent.

It's not like I mind some hip-hop. I just find country to be superior.

Bringing this up to the first page, I don't want it to get lost... I was camping this weekend (sort of) and there was a country line daning thing going on and that was pretty fun. With my love for country music I've never done any of the dances. There were a bunvch of people at this campsite who were complaining about country music being there two nights in a row, and the performers (if thats what they could be called) on the second night were atrocious. We ended up putting in Tracce Adkins Greates hits CD in and had that blasting over the sound of "Tammy Lee" and Dale "Country Hank" Roth yodeling and making cat sounds. Needless to say I think those talentless slobs were a littel pissed. But we didn't care, becuase they were actually performing karaoke style with a prompter to read off of. People were asking me how I could like sh*t like that, but I had to explain that is not what country is about. Once "Honkytonk Badonkydonk" and Rough and Ready" were going they understood.

I haven't had the opportunity to look them up, but one of my friends had a Lucero song on his ipod. I heard the song and I was like that sounds pretty cool. I asked him who it was and he told me it was Lucero, and I was like sh*t man, I've heard of them, but I never heard their music. I don't know what song it was though, and he only had that one song. I've got to ask him and I'll see about finding that out. It isn't like normal country, but it has enough of it for me to get the country thing going. It was funny, because my friend normally listens to punk rock and it took me off a little bit because he doesn't really listen to anything country.

Also, I heard Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" on country radio the first time yesterday. Anyone else here this a long time ago.

CCJ is a large-ass concert in a town called craven and this year people like paul brandt, sugarland, toby keith, dierks bentley and etc. came and played... and its likes 5 days long and everyone brings out their RV's and campers and ****.

This thread hasn't had any action for a while, thought I'd bring it back. The guy I know who I talked about before, Leechboy, had one of his songs done by Craig Morgan on his newest album, called "It Took a Woman", and it'll be released as a single soon he was told. He's pumped about it and I have both versions of the song, I like his original better, but The guys who re-wrote it for Craig Morgan did a great job as well. If anyone is interested check out some of the songs on his myspace page. Just look him up as Leechboy, or if you want to check out other things check out Billy Patrick. Its the same guy, but he goes by Billy Patrick for songs that he writes sometimes.

Went to see Eric Church in concert last night, what a show!

He was opened by a woman about my age, maybe a little older (mid 20s), Ashley Rae. Really really good. I think we may be seeing and/or hearing from her in the future. Great singer and her songwriting is very good as well. The one song was called something like " Hurricanes": Asking why she always falls in love with guys that act like Hurricanes. Her voice is kind of like Miranda Lambert, just a little deeper and with a little more pissed off sound at times. Another thing helping her cause is she is really good looking as well. Kind of like a mix of Gretchen Wilson and Martina McBride. Seemed really laid back and really enjoys performing...

The other group that opened was called Jonathan Singleton and the Grove. Its a group of 6 guys and they really rocked it out. They also sounded real good and I think we could hear them on the radio soon. Our crowd was really wound up and they just fed off of the energy. They said they have a single coming out today that if anyone calls up their radio to request it, it can be done. I'm going to search myspace soon and check it out so I can do that. I can't remember the name of the song, but I remember it was really good.

Eric Church and his band came out and just tore the place apart. Sang a couple of his older songs (These Boots, Two Pink Lines, Sinners Like Me, What I Almost Was, Pledge Allegiance to the Hag) And has some new stuff that he sang as well. Said they have a new Album coming out soon, which I plan on getting, a new video coming out this week as well, so keep your eyes open for it. Really a great showman as well I'm surprised he didn't collapse the stage with how much he was flying around up there. It was the first concert I ever went to and all I can say is that it was amazing. Another song he sang was "Young and Wild" or something like that, he also sang us the title song from the new album, "Caroline". Me and my buddy had a blast, and so did everyone there. When "These Boots" was one there were at least 20 pairs of boots in the air the whole time. Whenever "hat" or "beer" was mentioned, you can guess what was help up. 15 bucks to stand 20 feet away from the performers for a 3 hour show was a steal, and if any other artists I know come to this place again, I know I'll come back...

Jonathan Singleton also mentioned last night he co-wrote the song "Watching Ariplanes" with Jim Beavers, a very prominenet country writer, and I'm sure those of you that listen to country already know it was a #1 Hit for Gary Allen Last year.

If your a fan of old school/traditonal country then you have to go check him out. The great thing was that he didn't spend time pumping his new single or upcoming CMT crossroads. He also didn't jump around the stage or spend time talking. He just stood still in the middle of the stage and sang one song after the next. As I said earlier he said this "They said I could play as long as I wanted to and thats what i'm going do. I'm going to play until I get tired and if yall don't like that then you can leave."

I'm not sure if I've said it in this thread yet, but Gary Allan is a great, great country singer. I swear at least 10 of his songs are in my top tier of favorites. For whatever reason, his style, lyrics, and voice just work every time for me. His Greatest Hits album is one of the best albums I have, all 16 songs are incredible, and his two most recent Albums, every song on them I like. The only exception is "Watching Airplanes", I was never really into that song, but it was the most popular of his recently.

Also, Wide Open by Jason Aldean is a great album. Everyone knows "She's Country", and it is one of my favorites on the radio right now, even still, but there are great songs such as "Wide Open" This I Gotta See", "Fast", "Crazy Town", "On My Highway", "Big Green Tractor", "The Truth", pretty much the whole thing, lol.

Also, the Eli Young Band's earlier Albums are very good as well, tons of great songs on them. I'd list them, but it'd take forever.

I also got some of the Lost Trailers earlier songs, they have a heavier rock influence, but it works well and I really like some of the songs.

I just saw that when I was looking into Worley's concert in Alburtis. (Its at Lock Ridge Park, if you're familiar with it. I have no idea why it is there, seems really wierd, lol)

Any time Eric Church is remotely within driving distance, my friend and I will do everything possible to be there. His concert at Croc Rock was just amazing, he is easily one of my favorite artists, and he hasn't been around long at all.

Country.

Lol, jk jk, he used to do bluegrass, then he started writing some bad ass songs for Country.. Then he drank himself to death. Great music he made. This is my favorite song of his.. this style is the type of country music i can never get enough of.

I knew he was an older guy, didn't realize he had died though. I was just too lazy to google it. (What has life become when you are too lazy to google...?)

This is the guy I had been talking about earlier in the thread. Hopefully, some of you guys will like these. "Man of Me" was used by Craig Morgan in his newest Album, but they switched up the lyrics a bit and re-named it "It Took a Woman". It is my favorite of the songs on that album, so take that for what its worth.

Some of it qualifies as redneck gangsta rap. I've noticed there's a lot of talk about alcohol and loose women in many country songs. Enough mention of weed, too. The only thing it lacks are things like talking about money(although I bet someone corrects me on that one), and pimped out cars(country musicians instead opt for pickups).

For the most part country artists stay away from money in their music. They allude to it in many songs, but it isn't as obvious as some rap. The rest is spot on though. Weed is mentioned all the time, especially in the lesser known artists it seems.

Actually SABF, one song that does mention money is Big and Rich's "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy".

Opening lyrics are...


Well I wlk into the room, passsin out hundred dollar bills
And it kills, it thrills, like the horns on my Silverado grill.



It isn't common, but it happens. That happens to be one of my favorite songs BTW.

It's a male singer, it's a very slow song, most likely about love and heartbreak, and one of the main lyrics is:

"just one last cigarette"

Truth... It is my favorite album, and it isn't that close. All the songs are amazing, and like you say, they flow well, some will almost lead you in to another, and then there are two in a row that show so much contrast and compliment eachother (i.e. "Pledge Allegiance to the Hag" followed by "Two Pink Lines") I have his second album as well, and it has those same qualities, though it isn't as good as what "Sinners Like Me" was for him, IMO, but that is tough to follow up with. It is a favorite of mine as well. I have yet to find an Eric Church song I will skip over. He is one of the few, if not only, artists that has never been skipped over by me.

The more I've listened to music, the more I enjoy the "search" for music. I'd much rather listen to someone new who hasn't been heard of, or an up and comers earliest recordings (where they were still working on their sound, even) or basically anything you don't hear on the radio. I enjoy mainstream stuff a whole lot, but anything outside of it, if I enjoy it, it seems I get so much more enjoyment than from well-established artists. It is why I like Eric Church, Jack Ingram (he's beginning to be more recognized), The Eli Young Band (They will be big soon, I promise you), The Randy Rogers Band, Cross Canadian Ragweed (one of my favorite groups), and others so much more than guys like George Strait (weird saying it), Dierks Bently, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, and other mainstream artists.

I found out Friday Night (the night of the concert) that Jamey Johnson was playing less than 10 minutes from my house. I feel like the Eagles won the Superbowl, and I never got the chance to see it...:(

I have a family member that wants the latest Brad Paisley CD for Christmas and since I don't follow country music I don't know what it is called?

Plus rep for help.

The last country album I couldn't stop playing was "The Foundation" by Zac Brown Band, just because I LOVE Chicken Fried.

My dad also got to drink and buy drinks, and have drinks bought by Trent Tomlinson. I'm jealous!

Chicken Fried is a bad ass song, but so is "Whatever it is" and "Toes". I love me some Zac Brown Band.

The song is even better because I can relate to it, from when I'd go on the trails at my Uncles campground and sit up there with the family grilling burgers in the wilderness and drinkin' some beer on the ATVs.

God I miss those times, why can't life be that easy again?

Damn, I'm jealous. They're one of my favorite bands, and their song "Small Town Kid" is my favorite song.

I went to the Zac Brown Band's concert the other night and I thought it sucked. I like Whatever It Is and Highway 20 Ride, but Chicken Fried and Toes are just okay. I want to see Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, and Jason Aldean.

Yes definitely. I love Toes, so I have to disagree with you there, unless you are talking about it at the concert.

I like them both a lot, but Aldean's last album was incredible, lots of very memorasble songs on it, I think I mentioned it earlier in this thread actually, lol.

The only good part of the concert was the fact that it was cheap for a concert. In the seating chart they mentioned nothing of having a dance floor take up the first 40 yards around the stage. So I bought the second the pre-sale came out and got the 5th row on the floor. When I get there I find out I really have like the 50th row because the dance floor takes up all the space. Then Joey and Rorry, Nic Cowan, Sonia Leigh,and Levi Lowery sang over 2/3rds of the concert. Then to fill time, The Zac Brown Band sang Devil Went Down to Georgia and sang other songs that werent his. I ended up paying to have not as great of seats as expected and then ended up hearing the local bands from Georgia way more than anything else. They werent even good either. Zac Brown didnt even seem too happy to meet anyone that stayed so long after the concert to meet everyone and get autographs. He was just pushing everyone along and wouldnt even thank you for coming out. He would just give you a glare and push your autograph away......I think Toes is okay but my favorite song is Whatever It Is. Highway 20 Ride took a little while but it grew on me the more I heard it.

I like Whatever It Is a lot, as well as Highway 20 ride, but I like that whole album, so I would have been a happy panda. I like listening to lesser known bands, so I'd probably enjoy that too, honestly, as long as they weren't garbage.

I wouldnt mind listening to lesser known bands for a little while but not for the whole concert when I paid to see The Zac Brown Band. The only okay one of them was Sonia Leigh. The others sucked in my opinion. Plus, in most concerts the entertainer will move around and get into their music but Zac Brown just stood at the same mic and didnt move. My favorite concert so far, although its not country music, has been Trans Siberian Orchestra. It was awesome.

Any of you ***** listen to the Avett Brothers?

Did you see the Avett Brothers song "Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise" was on during the advertisement for the TNT show Saving Grace? Did yo also hear their album I and Love and You was #1 of all albums released in '09? That is another very good album. I like a bunch of their music.

Two of my friends went to a TSO concert a few years ago and still talk about it. I've heard lots of great things about them.

Jason Aldean has a lot of really good songs. I like She's Country, Why, Johnny Cash, and Hicktown the most. Big Green Tractor is probably next on the list. Truth is starting to be way overplayed. My favorite song by Lady Antebellum is probably American Honey.

It was amazing and worth the high ticket price. They have a Spring Tour but I dont know if that will be as good since they booked all of the events at little theaters instead of stadiums. They arent going to do their incredible set this time around I guess. My friend worked for the audio company that was hired to put the equipment up for TSO and he said they had 22 eighteen wheelers full of stuff just from the set. It took them 5 hours to tear down everything.

Those are some of my favorite songs by Aldean, but here are some more off his last album.

"This I gotta See"- A favorite song of mine
"Wide Open"-Another favorite
"Crazy Town"
"Love Was Easy"
"On My Highway"
"Keep the Girl"

Excpet for "Crazy Town", I could see all those songs on the radio soon after "The Truth" gets its time. I highly suggest going over his previous albums too, lots of songs that didn't reach popularity that are VERY good.

Also, another song I've heard that hasn't, and probably won't, get popular is "The Call" by Matt Kennon. Terrific song, nother favorite.

Not sure if I mentioned it before, but "Cattleman's Gun" by Dean Brody is another favorite song of mine, probably #2 behind "Small Town Kid". Cattleman's Gun is like a movie I can play in my head, great song.

As I was typing this post, "Hicktown" came up on my Itunes... lol
