I like John Prine and Emmylou Harris. Not familiar with Jamey Johnson.

The Beatles thread got me to thinking about what kind of music everyone likes. I grew up on Honky Tonk and Hard Rock. Now I'm more into Red Dirt Music.

Ray Wyllie Hubbard

Jason Bolland & The Stragglers

Reckless Kelly

Love Reckless Kelly, too, and have been a fan of Emmy Lou since her very first album.

As a retired semi-pro harmonica player, I have played in every kind of band there is and loved them all - blues, country, country rock, bluegrass, folk, pop, rock, hard rock, blues rock and my favorite as a musician - jazz and especially, gipsy jazz and swing jazz.

If I had to pick a type of music, though, that I listen to for the sheer joy of it, it would be country. It's in my blood. And let me not forget classical, especially some of the 20th century composers, my favorite being Bartok, which, by the way, I can play on my harmonica. Guess you might say I don't fit in any musical mold.

I grew up in the "Doo ***" era and still like listening to those old songs. Mostly nowadays I listen to country and a little classical. I also love to listen to Spanish guitar music.

303, You got me to thinking about Stringbean, when I saw him in a video you posted. Murdered in 1973, along with his wife, by a pair of brothers that were in the process of breaking into their house when the couple got home. They didn't find any money in the house, but Stringbeans coveralls had $3,000 in them, and his wife's purse had $2,000 when their bodies were found. Twenty three years later a man renting the old cabin found $20,000, rotted and mouse eaten behind a stone in the fireplace.

There are some great music links here. Thank you all.
And like the Lady from the frozen north country. I don't fit really into any musical box. I grew up listening to my parents music from the 30's and 40's big bands,Classical, Sinatra etc. Many of my friends parents were Hank Williams fans. Of course we had the Beatles, Stones and all of the rock and roll. And I love Seger. But more often than not I listen to Country and Folk. It just seems to fit better into my life.

Same here. I remember my grandparents crank phono and Al Joleson records. :-D Don't much care for "hard" rock and don't consider Rap music. Sorry Maclemore! :lol:

He would fit right in today the way he wears his pants. And he even sounds a bit like rap.

Top 40 from the early '70s up to about 1990. That's more or less when Nirvana showed up and ruined good music as I knew it forever. Ergo, I haven't listened to new music in over 2 decades now; my extensive song collection consists entirely of tunes that are older than my 15 year old son. :cool:
