    This is the album that made me give Country Music a consider.
    upload_2018-10-17_21-32-15.jpeg

    I got it for a girl as a xmas present and kept it.

    I then moved on to Hank Williams and George Jones amongst others. Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynnette, Patsy Cline, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris. Of the newer breed I like Lucinda Williams in bits, Alison Krauss and bits and pieces of others.

    I think country gets a bad rap. Its easy to lampoon and a lot of it is absolute garbage but you can say that about any genre.

    So in the pursuit of enlightenment what have I missed ?

    Whats your favourite Country song ?

    ^^^ I have too many favorites songs to name. I will say that you couldn't have picked a better female singer compared to Alison Krauss.

    God bless you and her always!!!

    Any song by Johnny Cash is my favorite, especially "Ring Of Fire."

    God bless you always!!!
