Default Pleasantly suprised by a song and artist...

So, my wife is a big country fan....

Let me preface this by the fact that I grew up in the grunge era where Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam reigned. I was and am a huge Zep and classic rock fan. I also love old school country and blues. Cash, Nelson, the Band, etc.

So, my wife, the country fan, has pretty much taken over the car radio, the mp3 player and the music on XM channels on DirecTV. So now I hear a lot of country. I am not a huge fan but respect some of it more. A few people I have grown to really like are Brad Paisly and Keith Urban...two people I would have thought I would have HATED before. What changed my mind? Seeing each live. Both are awesome guitar players...rivaling any of the other bands I have seen. I think Keith Urban had one of the best and rocking sets I have ever seen...and I have seen a ton of classic acts.

Anyway...the last half of Stupid Boy live rocked my world. The studio version has just a taste of the live version...last 1:45 of the song....what a fricking jam, man.....

Alice in Chains is one of my all time favorites. So many great songs.......Would, Down in a Hole, Angry Chair, Nutshell, Bleed the Freak etc. But old school country is where it's at for me. Old school like 70's and 80's. Growing up I hated it, but I was raised on it. Merle Haggard, Don Williams, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and George Strait sit at the top for me. The newer country really isn't country IMO. Alan Jackson is about the newest country singer left.

I've seen Keith Urban in concert and he rocks!

And I hate country music.

Im a huge Waylon fan. i cant stand that new bs on the country radio. Brad Paisley is an amazing performer and his music has a tongue in cheek humor to it. And AIC is in my top 5 bands of all time. When Layne was found dead i cried. I usually dont but it was a sad day. Their music helped me out alot.

AIC is, sadly, one of the few bands I wish I would have seen live and didn't.

I have tried and tried and tries and tried...but I can't over that nasily twangy voice thing they do. Stop "doing that" and I'm there, but that shit just annoys the Hell outta me.

Other than that, there are some very accomplished songwriters in the genre, the lyrics are generally pretty tight, the musicianship is top notch, and I have far more respect for most country artists than I do for hip hop and top 40 "artists" who have little talent and usually can't play an instrument or even write their own music and lyrics.

I felt the same way about the twangy voice thing but that is actually not as prevelant in the newer stuff anymore...maybe the older singers like Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks...

It surprised me as I heard more of the stuff.

Pearl Jam "10" is one of my favorite albums of all time. that album came out before i even knew what half of those lyrics mean while i was singing them. that album opened my eyes to a whole new genre of music. like Prodigy's "The Fat of the Land" did for me and my relationship with electronic music. but for some reason, i can't get behind Nirvana. i was never a fan.

i don't really like country music either. but A LOT of people do and i'm not about to step on any toes. i can get behind it when i'm in the mood to wind down and chill out for a bit, but not go to sleep.

I have found that as I get older, my musical tastes change. I look at the CD's I bought in high school and think...wow, did I actually enjoy that enough to buy it?

I have mellowed a bit as I have gotten older and appreciate songwriting, melody and accoustic stuff much more then when I was younger and was into music that had that "crunch" factor, as my brother refers to it.
