you're not the only one who doesn't like country music, I've also never liked it. I'll listen to almost anything else, I just can't stand country.

Speaking as a bemused observer of Country and Western music from across the pond perhaps its devotee’s could explain some of the finer points.


Is it compulsory to wear big hats.


Is anguish a component part of every song.


Where does C & W finish and other genres start or vice versa.


Why is inclusion in a song invariably fatal, lover killed by rival, flood, Union army?


Why are all famous C & W artists ‘great great friends’ of all other C & W artists ?


We have a C & W singer over here who wears big hats, big hair and cowboy clothes and hails from the derelict industrial wasteland of Liverpool. Does he qualify ?


Answers Please.

Thanks for the guidance Rondon, all these questions with slight national variations also apply to Folk singing in the UK. Here we get self styled minstrels who dress up in quasi peasant outfits and proceed to wail about life's misfortunes down on the farm when in fact they are in reality bus drivers from Manchester ! Are these 20 gallon hat men in Nashville the genuine article ?

You get your lover back...
You get your dog back...
You get your pickup truck back...
You get your job back...
You get your pa back...

You guys are terrible! In the midst of all the angst-ridden, angry man music that has been out the past few years, C&W is starting to sound cheerful! I listen to all of it though..

Yes...as well as really big belt buckles!



How is Country Western defined? My room mate in college threw a fit once when I referred to Garth Brooks as Country and Western...he said Garth was Pop Country. Is C&W defined by a certain style or instruments?
