    Are there any country/western music fans here? If so, who are your favorite artists? I particularly like George Strait, Shania Twain and Rascal Flats, but there's a ton of really good artists in country music that I like to listen to. I used to buy all of Alabama's stuff but haven't seen a new release for quite some time. Hear they only perform live now during the month of October at their theatre in Myrtle Beach. Anyone have any updated information on Alabama?

    All those you listed are great artists and bring credit to country music. (Both my married daughters like to look at Tim McGraw as well as hear him sing.) As hot as Toby Keith is right now, I was surprised he did not win any of the CMA awards.

    Love country music, but mine are the oldies - Willie Nelson, Johnney Cash, Patsy Cline, etc. And I did see Merle Haggard in concert once - he was great!

    Not a big J Cash fan. Nothing like Nelson & Cline. I'd love to see Merle and I don't go to see many people. He just doesn't fit the GQ personna that the country stars are suppose to have now. I think he's among the "greats".

    About all the live concerts we've attended have been country music artists. Merle Haggard performed in our town several years ago, and we went to see his show. That was when Bonnie Owens was still singing with his band but was no longer his wife. They put on a really good show. The concerts I have enjoyed the most were Conway Twitty and Glen Campbell. Twitty didn't talk much during his concerts--just sang--but he had great songs to sing! Glen Campbell can do it all; what a great entertainer. After his recent arrest and incarceration for DUI, does anyone know if he is back performing in Branson?
