1.Conway Twitty, Hank...I wish I could remember some of the other ones my dad use to sing to me.
2.George Strait...the only artist I have ever camped out over night on cold cement to get tickets for their show. (It also involved CIA and FBI guys with scary guns)
3.Brad Paisley

Oh, and Keith Whitley. And I can't believe Traci didn't mention Kris Kristofferson.

Lisa Looberoo

1. John Denver (my parents listened to the Beach Boys, but we lived in Colorado, so JD was kind of required).

2. George Strait, Randy Travis, Garth Brooks (moved to Kansas... country was pretty hard core).

3. Hmmm... Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban... mostly because they smile nice. I'm more of a Coldplay, Travis, Snow Patrol girl now.


1. Dolly Parton, George Jones, Merle Haggard

2. Dwight Yoakam

3. Dolly Parton

Corrine aka Mama Gomer

Oh, and if you asked my son Asher who my favorite country artist is, he'd say Third Day. :rolleyes:


1. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline, Conway Twitty, Charlie Pride, Statler Brothers, Oak Ridge Boys...
2. Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, George Strait, Randy Travis, Dwight Yoakam, Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart...but definitely Alabama
3. Little Big Town, Keith Urban, Trace Adkins, George Strait...

Corrine aka Mama Gomer

I don't like country music. I started to say more, but it got really long, and I felt guilty for taking up all of Mark's space. So I put the rest of my answer here: http://corrineinreallife.tumblr.com/


1. Johnny Cash
2. Junior Brown, Foster & Lloyd - then Radney Foster solo, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, George Strait
3. Here in Tx we have our own "breed" of country music we like to call Americana and we have the most AMAZING local musicians these days! Some of my favorites are Walt Wilkins, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Reckless Kelly, Pat Green, Cory Morrow...just to name a few *wink*


2. Garth Brooks
3. Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood


And one more Mark!!!

if you haven't heard them...you need to seek out Lester "Roadhog"Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys.

it should be in every collection of good country music favorites..you might need a good shot glass for it.


I love this game!!

1. Glen Campbell, Charlie Pride(saw both in concert), oak ridge boys, george jones, hank sr., Crystal Gail, Buck Owens,Johnny Cash and bob wills!

2. George Strait, Clint Black, Michael Martin Murphy(yes!!!! bring me some Wildfire!!!) Randy Travis, Dwight Yaokam, Willie, Highway Men, and who could ever forget...Restless Heart!!!

3. today? Keith Urban...seriously...the boy can lay it down.


1)I absolutely adore The Statlers. (I'll impress you sometime with my snapshot of me sitting on Lew DeWitt's lap. I was 5.) Conway Twitty, Loretta, Buck...

2)Clint Black, Randy Travis, Hal Ketchum, and of course, Dwight

3)Keith Urban covered ROMEO'S TUNE which I thought that was cool. Sugarland's new single is catchy.

first off, my dad made sure i was raised on both kinds of music...country AND western

1. Bob Wills (a distant relative of mine), Ernest Tubbs, Marty Robbins, Hank Sr. and Jr., Glen Campbell, Charlie Rich, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, George Jones, Tammy Wynette
Charlie Daniels, Willie Nelson,

3. Rascall Flatts, BRAD PAISLEY, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Pat Green, Toby Keith, Cross Canadian Ragweed, the Groobies, Cooter Graw

and wow, i don't think that i like country music. i certainly don't listen to it much, but i completely respect and enjoy every artist on this list.


Sorry for posting twice....
Steve Wariner


1. Hank, Sr., Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash

2. George Strait, Alabama, Ricky Skaggs, Collin Raye, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Randy Travis, Mark Chesnut, Ty Herndon, Sawyer Brown, Sammy Kershaw, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill (I prefer their older songs)

3. Gary Allan, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Sugarland (new single is a little annoying), Kenny Chesney, Leann Rimes, Dierks Bently, George Strait, Luke Bryan (went to Georgia Southern)

Tom Soto

Sorry, No Country for L.A. Men.


Two Words: Brad Paisely


1. Hank Sr., Patsy Cline, George Jones, Tammy Wynette. Put the last two together and you get chaos in their personal life and pure musical magic.

2. Alabama, Alan Jackson, George Strait.

3. Truthfully, I haven't liked much of the newer stuff — although my youth group kids subjected me to repeated playings of Taylor Swift's "Should've Said No" on a 19-hour trip to Mississippi. I can say that I don't hate the song, but it's kind of grown on me.


1. Buck Owens, Charlie Rich
2. Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle
3. Maybe Brad Paisley, The Wreckers album was great.


When I was growing up, there were basically only country stations so I love it.
1. Willie Nelson, johnny Cash and I really liked George Jones.
2. I loved it all. Alabama, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Mark Chesnutt, Travis Tritt...oh DIAMOND RIO, huge fan of theirs.
3. Now, I guess Toby Keith or Rascal Flatts


1. My parents only listened to country and I hated it. Now I don't. I love to listen to Hank, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Tanya Tucker, Charlie Pride, Ray Stevens (and all the Hee Haw crew).

2. I debated where to put these two (in #1 or 2). George Strait and Reba McEntire ARE country....period. I will listen to them until I die. In fact I have seen George Strait at least 13 times and my husband threatened to call him and tell George I was "cheating" on him after I had seen Third Day more times than George :).

3. I don't listen to much country now because I don't like most of them but my 2 favorites would be Rascal Flatts and Sugarland.

And Kid Rock is NOT country (sorry just had to get that on my chest).

Jean DeChant

1: Don't like Country but grew up with Hank Williams Sr.
2: Liked it even less
3: Don't like country!

Daniel Ross

1.) CASH
2.) Garth Brooks, Marty Stuart
3.) Brad Paisley, Keith Urban (though i still dig Marty Stuart the most of anyone)

Joel Stapleton

1. Oak Ridge Boys - Who hasn't done Richard Sterban's "oombapamowmow"
2. Alabama - I now live about 30 minutes from Fort Payne, HQ to Alabama...still.
3. Brad Paisley - I just think we could get along as boys...and, "Letter to Me" is a great song.


1. Conway Twitty (remember Twitty City???), J. Cash, Loretta L.
2. Alabama (for a week or two), Dwight Yoakam, Randy Travis
3. I don't like country music. I get it. Loathe it.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
