I love country. its about the only thing I listen too. well country and oldies. I was raised on oldies. I don't really care for pop or any thing else
Angie Martin
Country music is my favorite. I can listen to just about anything, but country is my favorite. Sometimes that rock music makes me angry, but country always makes me smile or laugh.
Tiffany Cummings
Country music isn't exactly my favorite but the few artists i like are taylor swift, brantley gilbert and florida georgia line. They are more popular.
Ashley Altendorf
Popular doesn't always mean they're worth listening to. :-) But yes, I do love Brantley and FGL. Brantley is amazing in concert, as long as you don't mind feeling like you're at a rock concert!
Tiffany Cummings
That's true Ashley, it's probably the only reason I listened to them in the first place since I listen to the radio a lot and they come on the pop radio channel. I'm actually wearing a brantley gilbert shirt right now. haha! He is one of my favorites.
Janet Elder
I use to listen to a lot of country music but since my mom passed away last year, it hurts too much! She used to blare it on the radio, in the car or even at home. I prefer country from the early 90's and earlier. They just don't make country like they use to. I think the 80's was the best for country.
Tabatha Carruthers
I try to watch the Top 20 Countdown every week on CMT. Right now, its mostly drinking songs, but I love Blake Shelton's music video for 'Doin' What She Likes'.
Ashley Altendorf
I miss the old Top 20 Countdown with Lance! It was so much better and it was all videos, no interviews or random pieces. And it had half the amount of commercials.
Gabby F.
I like watching that, too. It's just nice seeing all the songs that make the list. I love the majority of them. :)
Ashley Altendorf
Me too. Sometimes I will record it just to fast forward to the videos lol. I usually watch the like 4 hours of music videos in the morning on CMT though and that's how i get my fix. :-)
Leslie Larson
I listened to a lot of country music growing up. It still enjoy country music a lot but it sounds a lot different theses day. So time it hard to tell the difference between country and pop.
PJ H
You just have to listen to the right country leslie! If you are listening to rascal flatts than yeah it probably sounds like pop music
Barbara Burley
I only listen to country music every once in a while and I have to be in the mood. I don't know why that is, but it is.
Michelle Houchlei
I have never really cared for Country music. To me they have too much of a whine in their voice and the songs are usually about broken hearts, cheating, or drinking.
PJ H
I love those songs! I can relate to all of them! I have had my heart broken, cheated on and it usually ends with me drinking!
Ashley Altendorf
You got it wrong. It's lovin', cheatin', and drinkin'. No G's. :-) And that's not all country music is. If you listened long enough, I bet you could find some songs you really relate to.
Snide Alcinord
I love country music, but I haven't been listening to it for a while now. I like Luke Brian, underwood, and a whole lot of artist.
Allison Young
I have started to enjoy thi much more than I used to when I was younber. I think it's a little more modern now
Kara bear
I love country music! It makes me relax and enjoy the day when I listen to it...my favorite singer is definitely Tim McGraw.
Heather M
Tim McGraw will be here in Maine on Thursday! I have always wanted to see him. I have a newborn though, so no concerts for me this summer. I hope he comes back.
PJ H
I am going to see Tim McGraw at the end of June in Chicago. Can't wait its going to be awesome. I have seen alot of country singers but not him so it should be good.
Kara bear
if you haven't hear Tim McGraw sing you are missing out! He is totally my favorite country singer...he is one reason I like country so much! I think he is awesome!!
PJ H
I really like him. I have gone to alot of country concerts and festivals and for whatever reason have never gotten a chance to see him. It will be really cool this june!
Ashley Altendorf
I've seen him in concert and several times and his show is definitely worth paying money for. He sounds just as good live as he does on the radio...and he ain't sore on the eyes by any means!
Ocean Tiara





I only just heard this the other day and it made me want to share it with someone. Hope anyone likes it. I like this duet.
Missy Harrison
I grew up in OKC, and it seems like country music is in my bones. I love it, it's such a great genre, great to dance and sing to, wherever you are
Heather M
I love it, as well. My boyfriend prefers to listen to more of the pop music (he especially likes anyone that comes off The Voice), and I am just an all country girl!
PJ H
If you like country music check out Cole Swindell (amazon - link) Listen to the previews for "Chillin it" and "Ain't worth the whiskey" both are great songs. My favorite singer at the moment
Heather M
I like him as well! Isn't he the one that was friends with Luke Bryan back in the day? Luke is probably my favorite. :-)
PJ H
I am not sure. I really dont know the back story or really pay attention to anything but the music. He is really great though. Their are a few guys that are atleast new to me. Chase rice, and tyler farr are 2 others that come to mind
Ashley Altendorf
Chillin It is a great song! Cole Swindell is going places for sure! Probably down the route of Luke Bryan but that's not a bad route to take by any means!
Gabby F.
I like some country songs, but I'm not a huge fan. I like Taylor Swift, but people don't consider her "country." I like her
Dorann Winburn
In her earlier days I would have said that Taylor Swift really was country but at this point in her career I would say that she is more pop than country, however, I still like her.
Heather M
I used to like her back in the day, but am not as much of a fan anymore. Her songs are kind of annoying, to be honest.
Ashley Altendorf
We don't consider her country because she's NOT. She is a pop singer through and through and that's where she should stay as far as I"m concerned. She doesn't need to be considered a "country" music and win all the awards that should be going to other REAL country artists. As someone who was raised on the outlaw music and the 90s country music, she is a HUGE pet peeve of mine and big thorn in my backside. You can't call yourself a country music fan if all you listen to is her. And this isn't directed at the OP, its just a topic I feel strongly about. I mean does the girl even know who Waylon Jennings is?

I am watching the country music awards. It has been on for almost an hour and they have not given out any awards yet. Very strange.
Ashley Altendorf
That's not strange. Its been done that way for years. And to be honest, if I ever make it to an awards show, I won't be going to see the awards...I'll be going to see all the artists in person and to hear them sing.
Kris Stowers
Anyone a fan of Hayes Carll? I really wish he and Bonnie Whitmore were still together. They made a heck of a duo!





Ocean Tiara
I really liked it Kris. See the one I just posted ..it is another duet. I am not with anyone, but it sure brings back beautiful memories.
Kitty S
I grew up on 90's country music. That's when it was at its best. Now I hear it, and I don't really like it anymore.
PJ H
awww thats sad to hear. I love alot of the newer country. Guys like Eric Church, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean. They are all great singers
Heather M
Like PJ, I like a lot of the new country! I do love the older country as well. I guess I just like it all.
Ashley Altendorf
I was raised on 90s country and its sad that its not on the radio anymore but I do love some of the newer guys like Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.
Leo MacDonald
I miss the good old country music of the 90's what happened to that music?. Today it just sucks a lot we need old country music back.
Margaret Rollins
Yes Leo that was the good country music back in the 90s I loved to sit down and just sing along with the artists
Heather M
I don't think it sucks. I think to each their own. Nobody is making anyone listen. I like the older country and the new all the same.
Ashley Altendorf
They're definitely not all the same. It just depends on what appeals to you. They both have their sounds and for the most part, they're both good.
Darren Pare
I like some country music these days, but was a bigger fan in the 90s.
