    Just seen the video today and wow pretty nice video. :bow::bow:

    However the song does not fit country music. There a few out there that I really question as to why they are country and this one os in the borderline category. Just shocks me how much country music has changed over the past few years.

    didn't get to see it.. and what I think of todays "country"

    We had Comcast yank out the digital cable monday--I am having withdrawl already--I miss the country channels and the "Music Choice" classic country and bluegrass audio channels..but 75 bucks a month is too much for their "On Demand" and digital channels..

    Trace Adkins sings that song doesn't he??they hadn't played his new video before I lost the cable box..--I heard an interveiw on the radio this morning with the guy who wrote the song,he sings a new song about his kid wanting to pay his father to stay home with him and take him fishing or camping instead of going to work everyday...dammed if I can remember his name though...grrrr!. :mad:

    I'd say "country" music sure has changed too..and not for the better in my opinion!--they only play the new stuff,and have all but banned the legends like Cash,Haggard,Jones,Paycheck,and all the ones who are REAL country artists from radio airplay ..I like a lot if the newer stuff too,especially the females like Patty Loveless,Rhonda Vincent,Sara Evans,Martina Mcbride,Gretchen Wilson,Kathy Mattea,Suzy Bogguss and many others...but a lot of their music isn't really "country" at all..(except Rhonda is Bluegrass!--I cant get 1 song of hers played here--Alison Krauss is on the same label as Rhonda,she gets played!--and Rhonda has won the top female vocalist award 5 years in a row!--yet radio ignores her completely! :mad: )

    Acts like "Big And Rich",and "Cowboy Troy " make me vomit..as well as all the ones they overplay constantly,like Kenny Chesney,Toby Keith,and Rascall Flatts-(yukk)..I'd like them a lot more if they were not the ONLY ones played constantly!..Country radio is very biased against some artists,and wont play them no matter how many requests they get..I blame Clear Channel for buying up all the stations,and dictating to them who to play,and who not too--Sony got fined a lot of money for payola scams recently too..

    Listen to the radio for a few hours,and see how often you hear Tim Mcgraw..compared to some of the artists who really are and sound country,like Josh Turner or Daryll Worley--only traditional sounding artists I hear are George Straight and Alan Jackson..

    I miss hearing the older artists and songs a lot--only 1 station here plays 4 hours of "Oldies" on sunday mornings from 8am to 12 noon...thats why I liked the "Classic Country" channel on Comcast,and the Bluegrass Channel too--you NEVER get to hear either on any FM stations here... :mad:

    "REAL" country music is being phased out-only way to hear it now is on sattelite radio,expensive digital cable channels,or buying the CD's...I doubt if we will ever hear it on the radio anymore,maybe a few hours on an "oldies" show,thats it..its sad what they are doing to what was the best genre of music..took all the class and integrity out of it..its just pop with steel giutars now,and many of the video's are nothing but soft porn while the songs play.. :(

    Its coming back , slowly . Craig Morgan sounds country for sure , and I hear some others , but don't remember all the names .

    Don't know about other locations , but out here our "new" country station is sneaking older songs back onto the radio .

    And the kids out here are getting more into rock and country , and I see less and less kids acting "urban" , which is good .

    Room for both...

    Hey,dont get me wrong--I like a lot of the newer country stuff too!--but I hate the way radio shoved all the original classic country records in the closet(or the dumpster),and refuse to aknowledge they ever existed--there is room for both to be played,if they did not insist on playing the same ten songs constantly..Its payola pure and simple..unfair to the older artists and the fans of them too.. :mad: what happened to "respect your elders??"..

    I've noticed a few more older songs on our 2 "country" stations--but they are
    the ones from the late 80's and 90's ,never anything older--usually its Alabama or Randy Travis,or some other artist from that era..never anything older..Martina just released a CD of all covers of classics,like "Rose Garden".

    If I had kids,I'd want them to like country..rock and roll is not what it used to be,now its mostly heavy metal (I liked rock and metal when I was in my teens--can't say it coruupted me,but it didn't encourage me to be an angel either!)..and don't get me started on RAP!!...that isn't music..its a ghetto war chant...I hate all the commercials using it to sell everything...I'd rather have my daughter listen to and idolize Martina Mcbride,or other country girls like Terri Clark,or Trisha Yearwood than Madonna or Britany,or Chritine Agulara..at least they have some class ,and don't act like sl***!.. :rolleyes:

    I bet kids that grow up in rural areas and listen to country and bluegrass mosly are better behaved,less likely to get into drugs,or experiment with sex as soon as those in urban areas dominated by rap and rock..I agree with Pauly on that point!..

    I can say this for sure--the people at country concerts are a lot less rowdy and rude than those at the other types of shows--I've been to both..no pot smoke at country shows ,and no beer bottles bouncing off your skull...but its starting to creep into the country audience too,as more people from the pop and rock crowd now are getting into todays "country"..
    I hate travelling 100 miles and paying 35-50 bucks for a ticket,and end up sitting near drunken morons who talk thru the concert,ignore the singer,stand up,spill beer on you,or worse,peuke on you!(yeah,its happend to me! :doah: )..and who get all pissy if you tell them to STFU and watch and listen!... :angry1: :angry1: --it NEVER used to be this way--guess its just the times are a changing... :(

    One more who cant stand the new country. Ive basically quit listening to the radio, CD changers are your friend lol. Anyone ever notice how there are like 6 guy bands of 3-5 people, and they all sound the same? Its sickening. I like the old stuff, hank sr, cash, haggard, etc. I like up to the early 90's country (what my friends call redneck music, achy breaky heart etc :wink1: ) Anything after that is pretty much trash. There are of course exceptions, but they are few & far between. Seems like the newer women are more country than the new guys.

    Since when is kid rock country? And no I dont like 'hick hop' :mad: :mad: :mad:
