Count me in. Not sure about Hank Jr, but I like lots of the classic country. The shit that passes for country these days is pop music, or as T- Bone Burnett said, "watered down pop with greeting card lyrics".


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Totally agree. Modern country is just a subgenre of pop music. I love the old stuff though. Must admit that Willie's Roadhouse on SiriusXM is probably my favorite station these days.

It's the only kind of music I actively loathe in general, I'm afraid. I do like some Johnny Cash, does that count?

I've been dipping a little into classic country.

 

Hank Williams, Flatt & Scruggs, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Stanley Brothers, and Ernest Tubb.

 

It sounds better (& more musical) to my ears than your average Steven Wilson record.
