Do it now before it\'s too late - plenty of time for coffin-dodging later lol
    Thumpy Thumpy bleurgh!
    And yea im not keen on all the random stuff either, Miles Davis jazz great man, my arse lol
    But there is some really great stuff out there, Pink Champagne by Joe Lee Wilson comes to mind :]

    Ain\'t nuthin wrong with country music, then again i can\'t stand alot of the new crap. Give me Johnny, Willy, Merl... hell even some Conway will work. I never claimed to hide it, i\'m redneck, my family is redneck, you can\'t escape it. No amount of metal, Black metal or even rap can hide the Mississippi red on my neck.

    What you have to do brimshack is just embrace your inner redneck, in a manly way or the inner redneck will think your gay, and give in. That or fight it, kicking and screaming all the way until you break down. After all your in Arizona, drive a pick up and live in a trailer... your well on your way to dating cousins at the family reunion.

    My kids and wife like country music. There is some of it that is very well done....lots of it though is pandering or overly patriotic garbage only meant to tug at heart strings....And much of it seems no different that \'pop\' songs did several years back.

    I think its a odd phenomena how people want to be defined by the music they listen to.

    That outfit looks painted on.
    If she were a president, she\'d be Baberham Lincoln. /schwing

    If you want to listen to something different, check out Boondox, Twiztid and of course, ICP.

    Unfortunately she\'s got about as much plastic as a Space Marine Land Raider.
    Some would argue that Shania and the Dixie Chicks are not real country at all, More like Pop, kind of like the Cheap Trick or Nelson of country.

    Smells a bit like a \"No True Redneck\" fallacy to me. But its always difficult to sort the image from the music when it comes to genre boundaries. Is there a specific musical reason to place them outside the genre? Or is it strictly a matter of image?

    A few more questions to determine if you are truly lost in Hickdom:

    1. Has your SKOAL worn through the back pocket of all your jeans?

    2. How long is your mullet?

    3. Do you wear any turquoise and silver jewelry?

    4. Do you have a gold nugget ring that cannnot be lifted by a small child?

    5. Can you kill a cockroach in a corner with your boots?

    6. At the last wedding you attended, were pressed blue jeans and cowboy hats considered appropriate attire?

    7. Do you think David Allen Coe is a musical genius?

    Tried it made me sick. I\'m too sissy to be a proper cowboy.

    Originally posted by treide2. How long is your mullet?
    I\'m too close to bald, so it\'s not an option. But I wouldn\'t compromise good long hair by cropping it on top. Were I younger, I\'d let a proper freak flag fly.

    Originally posted by treide3. Do you wear any turquoise and silver jewelry?
    I spent 10 years out on the Navajo reservation. It was bound to happen!

    Originally posted by treide4. Do you have a gold nugget ring that cannnot be lifted by a small child?
    Hey, I don\'t even understand this one. Do I get bonus points for that?

    Originally posted by treide5. Can you kill a cockroach in a corner with your boots?
    Not since I was 8. Damn my old gym teacher for insisting on the switch to sneakers! And damn Apple Vallye California for being a terrible place to ride a horse!

    Originally posted by treide6. At the last wedding you attended, were pressed blue jeans and cowboy hats considered appropriate attire?
    Wedding? You think I\'d attend a wedding!?!

    ...you think folks would let me near such an occassion?

    Originally posted by treide7. Do you think David Allen Coe is a musical genius?
    No, Dixie Hayseed is damn close, as is Southern Culture on the Skids, and the Reverend Horon Heat has had a convert since the soundtrack to \"Love & a 45.\" But David Allen Coe, ...he\'s okay, but not much more.

    Default truly sad and awesome at the same time

    ok so i know this isnt quite hickish but i had to share it. in the middle of an intimate moment with the wife, i looked her deeply in the eyes and said.... \"Honey, will you paint miniatures with me...\"

    needless to say it ruined the mood and we had a good laugh about it.

    :twisted:

    oh and btw she should have her first mini on line this week. her name is uberwife.

    \"ooh yeah\"--macho man randy savage

    It\'s not just image. If you listen to earlier Dixie Chicks or Shania, you definitely hear a swing more towards a mainstream \"pop\" like sound in their later albums.
    Especially with Shania, who even released one album in a \"pop\" version and a \"country\" version.
    I expect the Dixie Chicks to go even more mainstreamish \"pop\" since they\'ve been shunned by a huge number of their country fan base. They may have won Grammy\'s, but I doubt you\'ll see them at the Country Music Awards.
    However, if you like them, you may want to check out \"The Wreckers\", which is Michelle Branch\'s foray into country.
    Country is a little more difficult to classify
    I mean look at rock. You\'ve got Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Death Metal, Bubblegum rock, Classic Rock, Grunge.
    To most, all country is just country.

    As to how low you\'ve sunk? You haven\'t you\'ve just expanded your horizons and found a little bit more culture.

    You only sink when you actually like Gangsta Rap.

    Well Brimshack, you are hovering somewhere between Hayseed and Shitkicker on the Hickometer, but you may be saved yet.

    Go to your nearest drinking establishment without a pool table or sawdust on the floor, order a martini, and listen to 8 hours of National Public Radio straight. If that doesn\'t cure you, it is terminal.

    Oh, and if someone offers you a beer, ask for something imported.

    Off hand, your comments about Shania make sense to me, but the Dixie Chicks always always seemed a little more squarely in the genre to me (notwithstanding their politics). I expect you\'re right about where their headed in the future though.

    The Wreckers have a Dixie Chick? ...That explains why I keep hearing aband that sounds so much like the Dixie Chicks.

    But I generally don\'t think \"Pop\" appeal is exclusive of any particular genre. (If it were, then the Beatles weren\'t a rock band, and neither was Kiss.) Seems to me the question ought to turn on the inclusion of specific non-genre elemts or (more to the point) dropping elements essential to the genre. Gotta wonder though after listening to mainstream country radio just how many of those acts aren\'t essentially pop dressed up in a heavy dose of rural symbolism. I\'d say the same thing of Heavy Metal and Gangsta Rap actually. Entire genres defined less by musical features than image and attitude.

    Oh, paying too much for beer? It\'ll be just like grad school then.
