Aw, gee! How far is that from something like Connie Francis in this top forties tune:



I understand and sympathize if you really don't like it. But I'd just hate for someone who loves music as much as you obviously do, to miss out on a whole genre possibly because of some preconceptions.

I'm not about to try and persuade anyone who claims not to like country to change their mind but IMO, really great music transcends it's genre.

The artists and songs I really like, I really like because they move me - regardless of whether they are country, rock, jazz or other genre.

One of my fav's:
Judy Collins - Someday Soon - YouTube
An Ian Tyson song. This version always makes me tear up. The minors tug at me.

This one, too. I heard it over the Atlantic returning from my first long term job in Europe and it told me I was coming home.


Later, I went north for a bit:

No one is 100% positive about the origins of this song. The general belief is that "Man Of Constant Sorrow" is a traditional American folk song first recorded by Dick Burnett, a partially blind fiddler from Kentucky. The song was originally recorded by Burnett as "Farewell Song" printed in a Richard Burnett songbook in 1913.

This is one of DS's favorites, a non-Willie "Crazy" written/performed by Pat Green:

I really like Pat Green! Ask your DS if he likes any Hays Carll, a similar Texas singer, Feever.
