Mine is, and has been for several months (maybe even several years) Brad Paisley. This guy is one of the most talented musicians and songwriters I have ever had the privelage of listening to. I have seen him in concert twice and both times I was utterly blown away by the level of sheer talent he exudes from his fingertips. He makes playing a guitar seem as easy as riding a bike. He's incredibly gifted, and yet surprisingly humble. I would love to meet the guy, do some picking with him and just get to know him...that kind of talent is far and few between. Check him out if you get the chance.

Brad Paisley is very good, but I'm a die hard Johnny Cash fan. I've loved his music forever! I also like Jim Morrison. Both were kind of rebels and I suppose that's why I like them so much, but they are my two favorites.

My ultra fav since my chldhood is Metallica!Yeah, classic will be classic. They have been rocking my world since I was 12.My dad love them and now, I worship them. I know that they are already on the peak of their fame before I was born and that really made me "worship" them. They are still continuosly loved by people of the coming generations because of how versatile and talented musicians they are that they attract people of different ages. I was there on one of their reunion concerts and wow, the number of people there gave me goosebumps. They could almost make their own country because of the tremendous population they made. There are old men and women, on their middle ages and kids as young as 8! Metallica will be metallica.

Heck yeah! I still listen to Metallica and think they are a great band too. While I am now mostly into country music, I grew up listening to rock and metal and Metallica was definitely one of my favorites. Good choice!!

I am really enjoying "Hedley" at the moment. Although I like many others as well. There music takes me back to a time I loved dearly and had tons of fun times. High school memories flood back when I hear the song "Old School", I also love "For the nights I can't remember' as a very, very dear buddy from high school told me it remindedd him of me. We recently discussed serious feelings we have for each other that had been hidden all these years and I am glad we did. I think we are closer friends than ever before. I love him dearly.

thanks for share that good information. there is a very good artist in my mind, and he is so important for me, he is my friend, and he is a great composer. wrote so many beautiful love songs, and so many girls are crazy for him, though he is not a good singer, but i will be touching when i am listening his songs. i am so glad to meet him, maybe he doesn't know that, but i will always support him in my unique way, and wish him always happy and write more and more good songs.

Brad Paisley is a good singer,and he has a lot of good songs out there on the radio right now,but I would have to say that my favorite singer would have to be Garth Brooks because he is the best if you ask me,he has a brunch of hit songs,and he is top selling artist,and he received the Crystal Milestone Award and the CMA not to long ago,which he well deserved,I have seen him once in concert because my Aunt took me for my birthday it was great,and I have a shirt that I got all those years ago that I still wear to this day,and I kind of wish I could see him concert again,and me and my fiance have almost all of his c.d.s.

Wow. Glad you mentioned Garth. Garth was the reason I got into country music in the first place...and I mean that literally. I now live in Nashville and spend a lot of time writing/performing original material down here...all because I got hooked on Garth's music all those many years ago. Like you and your fiancee, I have all of his albums and I have listened to them so many times that I have actually worn out CDs. He is an amazing talent and he will always have a special place in my musical life as he was the one who inspired me to pursue my own singing./songwriting career.
