    As for a song, does the Marshall Tucker Band count as country? I have always loved their song, "Take The Highway".

    I also have a favorite country song title:

    "I Wish I Felt this Way at Home". (Dolly Parton, I think)

    I about lost it when I saw that title in print. :D

    I like all those songs you listed. My favorite George Strait song is "You Look So Good in Love." I also like "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" by the Silver Fox, and "Party for Two" by Shania Twain.

    David Allen Coe - You never even called me by my name (Wil, I'm sure you'd be a fan of Mr. Coe, he has lots of song with non-pc lyrics)
    Johnny Cash - Big River
    Paul Brant - Convoy
    Paul Brant - Alberta Bound
    Merle Haggard - Mama Tried,
    Johnny Cash/David Allen Coe - Cocaine Carolina
    Merle Haggard Okie- From Muskogee
    Old Crow Medicine Show - Wagon Wheel
    Let it be me.....I forget who sings that :eek:
    George Jones - She still thinks I care
    Willie Neslon - Blue eyes rying n the rain
    And most of Stompin Tom Connors songs.

    I'm not partial to "new" country.

    I'm not much of a fighter in the "new country v. old country" fights, since my fan-hood is only about 1/5 country (classical being another fifth and rock/pop/punk being 3/5), but I can see how Billy Ray Cyrus was not cool. My wife thinks it's dumb that I like this band "Rascal Flatts," which she compares to a male Dixie Chicks. Oh well. She likes Alan Jackson. I guess he'd be "middle country"?

    George Jones and George Strait are two I need to check out, it seems.

    Right on!

    "You might think I'm goofy, but the man in the moon is a Newfie". That's genius.
