    New Country

    Please don't clobber me if this has been asked already..ha ha!  :)


    Are there any fans out there of the "new country", which is actually not so new now.


    If so, who are your favourites?


    I sometimes listen to Toby Keith, Big & Rich, Tim Mcgraw...to name a few.

    Sorry Dardaigh... not a fan. 


    It's difficult to go from the Who and David Bowie... through Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Nine Inch Nails and land on New Country.  I have tried and failed.


    On a sad note...


     


    Bob Welch, former Fleetwood Mac guitarist and then solo artist died this week of an apparent suicide.

    Suicide is such a waste......
    FISH-O

    Confirmed, He shot himself in the chest and left a suicide note... Thursday.

    Shooting yourself to death is actually very hard to do. Bet he didn't die right away. Suicide is actually very tough to do. Remember: NOBODY TRIES TO COMMIT SUICIDE....
    lambshank

    Oh, fishy that's awful, wonder why??
    FISH-O

    @JH... My sister tried to commit suicide a couple of times before she was successful.
    @Lambie, His wife made a statement saying he had issues with his health. Sad for his family.
    Dardaigh

    That is very sad to hear of his death, Fishlet! :(

    As far as the genre, I can appreciate that you don't enjoy it...though I love Rage Against The Machine and can still enjoy just about anything, music-wise, except jazz (no offense to Vinny!) :)

    I know a few of their songs...they're fine.  

    Dardaigh

    Uh huh but as far as country music goes, Doo? :)
    doolittle

    Well, I listen to some...what's funny is I've been asked to book and promote a local country band- so, I'm getting more familiar with it.
    Dardaigh

    Wow, a person of many talents! :)
    doolittle

    It's time to learn new things! For me anyway!
    Dardaigh

    Oh, I agree wholeheartedly..we should all be learning something new every day.

    Oh...and the penny finally dropped on the new innovation for the conversation alert...see? I also learned sumpin' new today. :)

    Where do you draw the line as to old and new? I'm a big fan; it would help me to answer your question.

    doolittle

    Oh, I was thinkin she meant the band - not the style of music- LOL
    Dardaigh

    Well Clonge, I was thinking of, say, when Shania Twain came on the scene and made it more mainstream, compared to the days of Dolly Parton/Porter Wagoner, for instance (though I do like Dolly.)

    It's been so long since I've turned on a radio, not sure if I have one. But, I remember New Country and their hit song......

    lambshank

    Julie, what was the song? not sure if I've ever heard them
    jhharlan

    I think it had the words "IN A NEW COUNTRY" in it or I'm thinking of the wrong band....
    doolittle

    Julie- you're right
    lambshank

    I will have a look for it, doesn't sound familiar, perhaps I haven't heard it,thanks
    Dardaigh

    Big Country--In A Big Country, Julie. :)
    jhharlan

    Oh, right.....

    Thank you!Darling !opp Dardaigh! you are a smart cat lady.

    Dardaigh

    LOL! You are most welcome! :)

    Dardaigh! my first though that came to mind about " New Country" What? I wasn't aware any new Country had been extablish! well you know us cave men are not aware of new country music, BTW, Maybe you can tell me who sang that song, a farorite of mind, "I love you just the way you are, I wouldn't change you even if I could".?

    Dardaigh

    C'mon outta that cave, Facebook! lol :)

    Here's your song...

    Just the Way You Are
    Billy Joel

    Don't go changing, to try and please me
    You never let me down before
    Don't imagine you're too familiar
    And I don't see you anymore
    I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
    We never could have come this far
    I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
    I'll take you just the way you are

    Don't go trying some new fashion
    Don't change the color of your hair
    You always have my unspoken passion
    Although I might not seem to care

    I don't want clever conversation
    I never want to work that hard
    I just want someone that I can talk to
    I want you just the way you are.

    I need to know that you will always be
    The same old someone that I knew
    What will it take till you believe in me
    The way that I believe in you.

    I said I love you and that's forever
    And this I promise from the heart
    I could not love you any better
    I love you just the way you are.

    I love country music. Johnny Cash and Dixie Chicks are my favorites.

    Dardaigh

    I have a CD of the Dixie Chicks called "Fly", Pikku. :)
