Old time country music

Old time country music

Old time country music are still the fashion. Nothing beats the music of Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Don Williams to name just a few. I grew up in the 1970’s and 1980’s with country music and just loved the genre.

My kind of country is the clear, pure, old-fashioned kind, emotional and gutsy and also sentimental. The songs tell about real human problems – love and the pain of heartbreak and loss – in a way that shows you that the singer is no stranger to pain, and is tough enough to suffer and survive.” ― Reba McEntire

This quote from Reba sums up my feelings about old time country music. Modern country music is just a lot different – not necessary bad – just way different. The Highway men – Willie, Waylon, Johnny and Kris knew how to tell the stories and put a beat to it. Don Williams one of my all-time favourites sang pure old time country music with songs like You’re my friend, Amanda, Tulsa time and so much more. Dolly Parton is still going strong with sold out venues and so do Willie Nelson

If you talk bad about country music, it’s like saying bad things about my momma. Them’s fightin’ words.” – Dolly Parton

Saturday evenings on the radio were country music time. The soothing sound of country music filled my room. It made me immensely happy. I still have the old vinyl records and the cd’s and I still have a Hi-fi system so I could play them. There are also country music stars like Blake Shelton, Billy Rae Cyrus and Carrie Underwood that I enjoy listening to. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill too.

Old time country music still rocks

“In giving voice to songs like ‘Good Ole Boys Like Me,’ ‘Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good,’ and ‘Amanda,’ Don Williams offered calm, beauty, and a sense of wistful peace that is in short supply these days. His music will forever be a balm in troublesome times. Everyone who makes country music with grace, intelligence, and ageless intent will do so while standing on the shoulders of this gentle giant.” — Kyle Young, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO
