We have been discussing country music lately.  Most of the people who dislike country music cite flimsy excuses like "all they talk about is getting drunk" or " all that stuff is is beer drinking songs", or " it sounds nasally".  I am here to set the record straight.  I will cite songs that are not about getting drunk.  Not about beer drinking.  Notnasally.  Here are some subjects of socially redeeming value found in country music.

Religion.  "If God Met You, She Wouldn't Like You".  George Jones and Tammy Wynette, 1980.

Children.  "You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly".  Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, 1970's.

Astronomy.  "The Moon Is High, And So Am I".  Written by Roger Miller, recorded by Burl Ives, 1961.

Admiration. "She's More Of A Man Than I'll Ever Be."  Written and recorded by Rodney Carrington, 1991.

Sports.  "You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd". Written and recorded by Roger Miller, 1965.

Family.  "My Uncle Used To Love Me, But She Died."  Written and recorded by Roger Miller, 1965.

Finance. "Busted", written by Bill Anderson . Recorded by Johnny Cash.

Marriage. "She Didn't Let The Ink Dry On The Paper."  Written by Mel Tillis and Wayne Walker and recorded by Burl Ives, 1962.

Now, if this collection of country music, will not convince the most diehard detractor of the error of their ways, their case is hopeless.  I would wager that some of you can think of similar songs. Laughing  Laughing

Nobody likes my tongue-in-cheek critique of country music? Sorry.

Are you making a personal statement, or are you quoting Johnny Paycheck?

I have read the thread but I hadn't commented because I am not as conversant on c&w as each of you and didn't have much to contribute. I can remember when Roger Miller and Burl Ives had songs on the major charts , and know they won them handily. As far as the current crop of c&w pwerfomers go, they occlude their weight in rap and hip hop and sound far more pleasant doing so.

When I was growing up my Dad would play his C&W records every night while we ate dinner. I guess that's why I like it today.

In 1959, I brought home a Connie Francis 45. My grandfather announced that there would be no "sissy music" in his house and promptly deposited it into the wood stove. We listened to country and Lawrence Welk at home. I was a big kid before I ever heard an Elvis Presley record.
