1. This is Country.

Not that "country rock" so prevalent nowadays.

2. Country music is not innocent

Country music is dirty, loveless, and trashy.

3. and I can't tell --

was that a violin, or did you say something?
did lightning strike me where I stand, or did you just reach out
and hold my hand?

The bridge of "Look What Love Has Done," a country song, my and Mrs. Venation's song. Not dirty, not trashy, and most decidedly not loveless.

(I didn't take offense, Tobin. Just pointing out that it's not all trash.)

7. If it's about love, it's not country music. A love lost on the other hand...

...now we're talking country.

5. Loveless! HA!

 

You must be joking...

I can't think of a genre that embodies love and relationships more...

4. Not fond of Country Rock. I do like George Jones and the Authentic stuff.

Also like original stuff like "Driving my life away" (Eddie Rabbit)

6. Not a great fan opf country music but I do admire country artists' ability to laugh at life.

There's a list of song titles which includes classics like

I still miss you, honey, but my aim's getting better
How can I miss you if you never leave?
My wife ran off with my best friend, and, boy, do I miss him.

Here's one that's been a favourite of mine for some years...



I'm not saying artists in other genres don't laugh at life, but country artists...

10. Saw David Allen Coe in New Orleans...and they ran "Innocent" out of town

It was last seen running west past Baton Rouge with the fear of god in it's eyes.

There was nothing innocent there
