Do You Know Real Country

So many people today think Country Music started with Kenny Rogers,Garth Brooks,or Shania Twain and haven't the slightest clue who the real honest to goodness artists are. If radio would play more of these artists on a daily basis we would have more knowlegable listeners,and less of a generation who has such a high disregard for it's past.

I have ran into people over and over again who think they know real country music. Most say it's a matter of taste. Not really. You either know how it's supposed to sound,or you don't. Nashville has watered down the the sound of Country Music over the years to the point you can't tell Country from Pop music all because of the allmighty dollar. Listen to the song "Murder On Music Row" by George Strait that will put things in perspective in a hurry.
