Should be good. I grew up on old country, but don't listen to it often these days. Be a nice trip down memory lane, back to the 50's when Mingo was cool.

Hopefully it ends about circa the turn of the century, and that's probably pushing it. I have to listen to an AM station all the way in MT because I can't stomach radio country.

Did country music continue after Hank Jr. ?

I haven't listened to that pop stuff after "Country Boy Can Survive"

Tom Petty summed it up very well about 15 years ago. He said "New country is nothing but shitty rock n roll with a fiddle"

Nashville Pop. and all pop sucks. Nashville has too, too often throughout the eras. Willie left for a reason.

Texas has good stations at least when you tune away from Commercial Country. there's some good stuff to be found here and there online from local stations.

Akheloce, Hank Jr was commercially minded too. his son, Hank III now...

Wonder if it will lay the final death of country at the feet of the two people most responsible for killing it - Garth Brooks and Shania Twain....

Well, while I agree with what's already been stated. I remember being young, watching Hee-Haw and the rhinestone suits the guest performers wore. But I also remember this new sound coming out that the die hard country fans hated, but us young and upcoming rebels liked this new vibe. Waylon, Willie, Johnny Cash, etc. They stepped out of the norm and the sound of country music began to change...

Now we're old and those rebel outlaws are old too....or dead. Times change, as does the sound. Same with Rock and Roll, we might not like it...but the young voices of each new generation will always drown out our yearnings for the unchanged music we hold sacred. We did so with our parents...and well, full circle.

IMO, the O in country music went missing awhile back. Merle Haggard, George Jones Waylon Jennings etc. days have long gone. There is a couple worth an ear but not many.

We went to a country jam here in Jax a few years back and they had acts form Chesney, Aldean and Zach Brown to Marshal Tucker. Concert was great and the performers music had a harder more rock feel than traditional country. I like Aldean, Dierks Bentley and some of the newer stuff, some of it just doesn't do anything for me so I don't listen to a lot of what is played on the radio. I can tell you this though, walking through the parking lot and seeing the young kids playing anything from country to hip-hop is what really drives the music industry to seek out and promote "cross-genre" performers. Most of the performers don't write their own stuff anyways.

I saw Chesney here in Jax for $5 when he was promoting his first album, have seen Garth in concert and thought it was a really good show, like Mingo said, times change and the audience changes which dictates what gets played. At the end of the day it really doesn't matter cause George is still the king, Willie's gettin high, Hank is drunk, Chris he is a movie star and Waylon is stayin home and lovin Jesse.

Some hope on the horizon with the likes of Whitey Morgan, Cody Jinks, and Jackson Taylor etc. I used to pony up for the satellite radio because I drove so much and the Outlaw Country channel had a pretty good selection that wasn't tractor rap.

Absolutely...his live cover--The Four Walls of Raiford is exceptional, and very old school is its simple approach.

Mingo’s link sent me down this rabbit hole:

“Lost Highway: The History of American Country ● "Beyond Nashville”

As far as Ken Burns goes, he’s strong!!!

for the most part I agree. But, there's some good stuff out there in the same vein, if you can find it.

try:
Scooter Brown Band (supposedly an OIF I Marine) American Son is my new favorite album
Andrew Pope
Hank III
Shooter Jennings
Midnight River Choir
Cody Jinks

As my wife tells me every time I turn the radio on to country bop "We all know that you blame Garth and Shania for the death of country."
To quote Hank jr. "I'm a dinosaur"

There is one station that plays Country from the 80's back, and they are out if Indiana so you can't stray too far West or you'll lose it.
There are some new acts that play like it should sound, the oldest son listens to them and then steers me in the direction of what app to get to listen to them.
