Hey everyone

Anyone who likes country music, why not we share our favorite artists (top 5 or 10 perhaps), songs, albums, voices, overall favorite, etc. Hopefully we can all hear some new stuff that we'll really like

top 10 artists
Shooter Jennings (son of Waylon)
George Jones
Jamey Johnson
Waylon Jennings
Hank Williams, Jr.
Hal Ketchum
Jacob Lyda
Merle Haggard
Dolly Parton
Dwight Yoakam

Jacon Lyda is the only real unknown on this list, for reasons I don't know. He has talent falling out of his boots. I got to see him at Tootsie's bar in Nashville, and met him and bought two of his albums (indy releases basically) and got them signed. He has a myspace page, which is about the only place you'll hear his music. He is traditional country, in the vein of Randy Travis and George Strait.

Jamey Johnson's "That Lonesome Song" and George Jones' "I Am What I Am" are two of my favorite albums of alltime, country or rock n roll

I think one of the best songs in modern times in Rascal Flatts' "What Hurts The Most". Their version is good, but hte writer, Jeffrey Steele, has the definitive version. Sadly, it's fairly unknown, but youtube has some incredible live versions of it. At times he gets to sounding like Elton John when he sings in his raspy voice.

The best songs of all time in my opinion are
"He Stopped Loving Her Today"-George Jones
"If Tomorrow Never Comes"-Garth Brooks
"In Color"-Jamey Johnson

They all have a timeless sound to them (unlike what the radio plays 5 times a day).

Conway Twitty didn't make my top 10 list, but only because I haven't heard a great deal of his music. But his voice is phenomenal. If you get a chance to hear "Slow Hand", you will definitely smile at the voice he has.

I recently bought Jamey Johnson's first album, "The Dollar", and I came across what has become a favorite song of mine-"My Saving Grace". If you can find that song anywhere, it's great.

But to anyone who likes smokey voiced outlaw country, listen to Shooter Jennings. It's like Lynyrd Skynyrd had a baby and raised him on country music.

I forgot all about that conway song, thanks for that link. I love some of Reba's song. One of my favorite songs ever is "The Night The lights Went out In Georgia". He version of that is great. That song, Ketchum's "Small Town Saturday Night", and Toby Keith's "Should have been a cowboy" are the 3 great songs I remember listening to a lot as a kid (I'm 20). I have KKetchum's first two albums, and they are loaded with gems. "Stay forever" being one.

In the vein of Leo Kotke and his sickening guitar abilities, Jerry Reed is pphenomenal. My favorite movie is Smokey and the Bandit, and I've seen him in a few 70s movies, but I never knew he was such a great guitar player.
Here is "Lightning Rod". It's almost disgusting



I recently saw an episode of HeeHaw and Roy Clark did his instrumental break and played "Maleguena". There are many versions on youtube, but they are equally great.

I really like Garth Brooks' earlier stuff, (the Dance, If tomorrow Never Comes, Much too young, Shameless). His first album was amazing. It's almost greatest hits caliber with the songs on it. I literally heard shameless for the first time last weekend. I was at work and it was on the radio and I went home and tried to find the title (since radio stations never tell the songs anymore). I learned it was a cover of a Billy Joel song. And I had the Joel album but had forgotten completely about it. I had that same thing happen with Carrie Underwood's I Told You So. I had the Randy Travis album that it was on and forgot all about it.

That Shelly West song just finished, I haven't heard that song in ages. I love that, thanks for that link too. I've seen that live Hal one several times, I love it.

Wynonna I like, but haven't heard a lot from her. I remember when she was big in the mid 90s (fame and physical size) and my grandpa used to tell me "There's your girlfriend" and I'd get so mad. I tried to have a comeback, and told him "well your girlfriend is ELMYRA!!" (the little red headed girl on Tiny Tunes who "hugged and squeezed" every animal). Everytime I hear a Wynonna song I remember that

Leo Kotke and his sickening guitar abilities,


Did you ever hear his story on how his 10 string guitar came to be?

Hehe. Thanks MissPlaced. :thumbsup:

But seriously, these guys are pretty good. I like most of their stuff. Not a huge country country fan, but I like the more 'pop/rock' type. My dad was a big country dood and he would play the guitar and sing many of the greats of country. I grew up on lots of this stuff...

One of my personal favorites.... from the 'old' style.

Like Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire" ect...My Father loved to listen to Marty Robbins as well,
this was his and one of my favorites from the "oldie stuff"



Guitarbutt,If your into Garth Brook's,IMHO, His "Scarecrow" Cd is just about the best,,,you won't find the song's on You Tube tho....

Wynonna has a great song called "Additude" i won't post it here, it's a lil risque for this forum.....But you can find it on You Tube
and just for fun....I'll post this one....

MissPlaced-I read some reviews for Scarecrow, I'd love to get it.

If anyone likes Waylon Jennings, and knows hte song "Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Out of Hand", check this one out. Same song, but from what I understand, Shooter and Waylon remade it. They did it when Shooter was in his late teens, and just recently Shooter's band rerecorded the backing music. It's a slow, sad ballad, in opposition of the original, which was fast. I love this version. Jamey Johnson and Shooter did this song on CMT's Crossroads. The only thing that is really different is the title, and one word in the song. It's called "Outlaw bleep". If you can find Shooter and Jamey playing it (probably www.CMT.com will have it somewhere), Shooter sounds hauntingly like his dad

The way he tells it is so funny
Basically, he had an old 12 string and an old stray, favorite case
The guitar was too big for the case, but he needed one, so he cut the top off the headstock along with 2 tuning pegs
He brought that guitar out at a concert I was at and just made that thing sing
