Default Anyone like any country music songs?

I know this is going to be an unpopular topic on these boards, haha, and I'm not a country music fan... in fact out of all genres it's at the bottom for me along with rap(unpopular opinion I know) but of course there are always outliers and there's a particular song lately that I've been hooked on so it got me thinking about this topic... anyways...

^ This is the one lately - A Country Boy Can Survive... lmao, if the shit ever truly hits the fan you'll wish you were one... I just really enjoy the lyrics.

Couple from Johnny Cash...

I think most country music sucks straight up, but there's always a few...

I like Hank Williams Jr. a lot.

And there are quite a few country songs I like.

However, I don't like most country songs about women and partying and BS.

I like the songs with substance, such as Brooks N Dunn "Believe" or Little Big Town's "Bring it on Home."

I ain't even gonna lie. I have a new guilty pleasure song.

Say what you will about country music, mainstream radio and everything else... you can't tell me that isn't the biggest "sticks in your head" song you've heard in a long time.

Overall tho I like some country but definitely not the new crap. Although I will say, Toby Keith (who really doesn't get taken as seriously as he should as an artist) has some incredible tunes. But like so many others, he falls prey to the same crap Stalker was talking about. Just too many songs in country music about the same stuff, to the point where I can hardly differentiate it anymore.

"I Walk The Line" by Cash is probably the GOAT country song, although I'm guessing that isn't a unique opinion.

Male country music singers all sing in the same baritone vocal style.

Meh, not a fan of country at all, nor of modern rap, two worst musical styles IMO, along with reggaeton.

Love country. Country, R&B (old school), Rap.

In that order, for me.

If you like the older country, but like a new voice, you should really check out Luke Combs.

His voice is pure country and he sings so effortlessly.

When I was living in Chicago and Southern California, pretty much no one except white folks like country. Out here in Texas though, I was shocked at the number of Mexicans and African Americans who like country music.

Yup

I was dating a white girl in So Cal and she invited me to go dancing at a honky tonk, at first I was like uh, I don't know about that, some redneck dudes might not like seeing a good looking blonde girl hanging out with a Mexican dude but the place was chill af and I also saw a few white guys with Hispanic girls there.

Yeah, sometimes I tend to stereotype too, I thought the place would be crawling with KKK members looking to lynch the first minority they see

It isn't my cup of tea for the most part, but i like a lot of old country (Cash, Willie, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, etc). I even listened to a Bakersfield Sound playlist the other day at the gym. Good stuff.

Don't most women country singers sing about keying their cheating husband's car?

And the men sing about drinking from a red solo cup

Not a huge country fan but I got exposed to a lot growing up in Alberta. I do like some older country and anything with more of a bluegrass feel. There's an Albertan country singer named Corb Lund that I really enjoy.
