    Because Hank Williams, Jr and all his rowdy friends have settled down, or died...

    There are still a few. Jamey Johnson, etc.. Generally I agree with your assessment, though. My personal rule is if they have eye liner on and they are male, I probably ain't listenin. :)

    You and many others may not care for the direction that Country music has taken lately but to say that it is “so unpopular” is just foolish.

    I can’t say that I disagree.

    love me some Waylon.
    Hank Jr.,too.
    heck...one of Elvis' greatest albums was the '71 classic Elvis Country...recorded in '70...a true gem.
    Ray Charles had a classic LP Modern Sounds in Country &Western...one of his greatest.
    who isn't a little bit country...and a little bit rock n roll?

    i have not listened to music on the radio since the 1980s. Seriously, my grandkid asks me all the time if I have heard of this group, that song, or that singer and I have no idea who they are. I listen to either news talk conservative radio or sports talk radio. Back when I did listen to music on the radio Country was my choice. But that was listening to Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys, (followed then since they were gospel quartet) Charlie Rich, Glen Campbell, kenny Rogers, and the Statler Brothers. If I listen to country in the car today it is those groups from a Pandora channel. I would not recognize a Blake Shelton tune from a Kenny Chesney tune. I am amazed that kids listen to hip hop or rap today and actually call it music.

    Not a big fan of country but can tolerate it. Love the classics like Florida Rob does. But really kids not just listen to rap, hip hop, but heavy metal, Justin Bieber, and other music that is not called music.

    If you ever get a chance to attend the Grand Ol Opry it is worth it. I've been twice and it waa very entertaining.

    A damn good country music album just won Album of the Year at the Grammys, which is essentially a massive popularity contest.
