Also cross over artists/songs for instance, Bon Jovi would not have made my list as a favorite country song performer but the new Bon Jovi song Make a Memory that is not playing on the country song is going to become a favorite. Do you think of your music in groups? example romantic such as Brooks and Dunn "I am That Man" or Reba McEntire "I'll Be" Fun like Brad Paisley "I'm Gonna Miss Her" Roy Clark "Thank God and Greyhound" Story songs, Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley and Allison Krauss, He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones or do you just have your songs as those you like dislike or by artists? So what are some of your favorite country songs, if you are like me there are to many to list them all.

They also have one of my favorite Christmas songs, which is Christmas Carol, as a fan I am sure you know it. I am so glad I got the album and have the song, because it is not a Christmas song you hear otherwise. They have some greats.

I love country music-- New country-- I'm not into the old George Jones stuff. My favorite singers are Kenny Chesney- I love all of his music.. I have every cd. Favorites are - woman with me, I go back, she thinks my tractor sexy, alot of things different. I love Carrie underwoods song- Think before he cheats-- When I said I do-- Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black- Love that song--- All jacked up Gretchen WIlson-- other than that I'm not a fan of hers. love Toby Keith too- Not too crazy over his new song- High maintainence woman. But you are right there are far too many great country songs to list-

I really liked Gretchen Wilson's Here for the Party, but then they played it to much, not yet sure if I am going to be a fan or not to early to tell. I am not to crazy about the whole new album of Toby Keith's. Some of the songs are just so negative, which is a shame, as I am a fan, but this last album has colored my views on him.

Thanks for posting, no California Dreaming is not a country song, it is considered pop. hmm ok well music comes in genre or catagory types. For instance there are songs that are pop, as in popular, such as Beach Boys songs, or Britney Spears. Then there is Rock n' Roll which are the early rock songs from the 50's and 60's. Elvis, Little Anthony, Jimmy Beaumont Then it evolved into Rock with groups like the Rolling Stones, There is also Metal, Heavy Metal, Punk, Rap, Hip Hop, then there is Country Western which is the rather twangy sounds from the early days with performers like Roy Acuff, and Tammy Wynette. This evolved into Country less twang more crossover type songs that some could play on pop stations, there is still Blue Grass, which is offshoot, this type is usually played with fast fiddles, and steel guitars. Country is primarly from the southern states, of the USA, and Nashville Tennessee is where most of it is recorded. There is even a song by Alabama [not the state there is a also a group /band by that name] which states "if you're gonna play in texas you've got to have fiddle in the band" I don't know if it will play there but if you want an idea of country music you may want to go to www.catcountry1073.com there is a icon on the right where you can listen to the radio station online. This station is played in Philadelphia Pennsylvania area, which I know is not the south, but country music is listened to in other parts of the USA at one point country music in the early days was called "cowboy" music. Hope this helps explain what country music is. and I agree California Dreaming is a good song.

I am not familiar with the Let Them Be Little though I like Billy Dean I am going to have to find that song. That is what is great about country music it is both mellow and dance fast depending on the songs, and sometimes a little in between.

I like some country music, primarily stuff from the 90s and more the cross over stuff than anything else. Admidtly, not very "country" today Shania Twain was relatively unknown when I discovered her and at the time she was considered a country artist and constantly on CMT. My desire to see/hear more of her at the time was what actually introduced me to other country artists and got me liking some, definetly completely unexpected for me at that time. I was a pop/rnb/rock girl. So she will always remain my number 1 no matter how uncountry she is. Apart from that I like: Garth Brooks - The Change and Standing Outside the fire Chely Wright - It Was; Unknown Trisha Yearwood - How Do I live Dixie Chicks

I tend to go in spurts where I overplay some songs. I also find that the emotions, and stories of the songs can help express things to others that might otherwise go unsaid since I may not know how to put things into words. I remember the song I Miss You A Little by John Michael Montgomery, he wrote it about the passing of his father. It describes really well the way my mom felt about my grandmother. Mom and I had our times of disagreements, etc, but I played it for Mom and said that it was likely how I would feel about her when she was gone, and that it seemed to be about how she felt about her mom, she didn't really say much after hearing it I could tell it meant something to her. I guess because so many in family have passed away I learned early to tell people when they are still part of our lives how much they mean to us. The other song I played for her that day was Garth Brooks A Friend to Me he wrote it for his wife, but the song is really good for any relationship with a strong emotional bond, such as parent/child, siblings, friends, lovers We both laughed as one part of the song These lines were very meaningful for us : You can be so stubborn There's times I think you just like to fight And I hope and pray I live to see a day When you say I might be right I do think it is a great song about those strong deep emotional relationships.

Oh yeah I'd have too many to list :) I've been listening to country for thirty years and I've been exposed to many singers from before I was born. However I'll try to give you some of ones that I love and maybe share some you might not have heard of before. Phantom 309, Teddy Bear, Roses for Momma, Convoy: all by Red Sovine. He did some great songs but make sure you have a kleenex handy, some of them pull at the heart strings. The Class of 57, Do you remember these, Whatever Happened to Randolph Scott, Elizabeth, When the Lights Come on at Wrigley Field, and You are My Sunshine: All By the Statler Brothers. The Pill, Ones On The Way, Dear Uncle Sam, Coal Miner's Daughter, and many more: By Loretta Lynn Old Hippy, Older Hippie, If I said you had a beautiful body would you old it against me, Rebels Without a Clue, Kids of the Baby Boom, and many more: Bellemy Brothers Ok I think I have listed enough to give you some ideas. I usually go by artists but sometimes I will group them by themes. There are many more I like by Billy Ray Cyrus, Garth Brooks, Reba, Dolly Parton and so on but I figured I gave you a sampling and if you haven't heard the songs you might want to.

I remember all of those songs, and you are so right about the Red Sovine requiring a klenex I remember when Teddy Bear first came out, and I even have besides Teddy Bear, the sequel to that song, Teddy Bear's Last Ride Part 2. Tears your heart out. And I loved the Bellemy brothers, when I was in school everyone was listening to Queen, and Kiss, and Black Sabbath, and I was listening to country, including the old greats such as Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Hank Sr. Sonny James, Roy Clark, Buck Owens, Ray Price, Charlie Rich, and of course the huge controversy when Loretta Lynn kissed Charlie Pride on the cheek at the awards ceremony. So I know about listening to those songs, and remember them well.

It is hard to limit the favorites to a short list I know. I also like some older, some newer. Not to heavy into bluegrass though going to see a local bluegrass band tonight. The music is good, the band is good, we see them once a year about this time of year with the in laws who prefer blue grass to anything else. I think I missed A Woman's Love by Alan Jackson, I will have to look for it. Martina McBride has so many great songs it is hard to limit. Though for all time favorite Charlie Daniels I would have to say mine, is Little Folks. I know most think Charlie Daniels and Devil Went down to Georga and Devil Came Back to Georga, but for me the best is Little Folks.
