    I like Jesus , Take The Wheel but I'm afraid to invest in what looks to be a shoddy product dub

    Isn't MOR listed under GENRES? Along with the clincher "For completely shit music that no-one else wants in their forum..."

    When I'm in the mood for some OVERBLOWN SENTIMENTALITY and I don't have my CELINE CDs to hand, a bit of Country always does the trick.

    Favourite artists: Tim McGraw :horny:, Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris.

    In fact, Tim McGraw's Dancehall Doctors CD may well be my fave country album EVER. He's TOO GOOD for Faith Hill :evil:

    On ITS way...

    "The Way You Love Me" in its Love To Infinity remix guise is of course ULTRA POP TASTIC and "Breathe" ain't BAD. I also have a soft spot for "There You'll Be" but the less said about THAT the better :zombie:

    'Cry' is wonderful overblown balladry.

    What is Faith Hill up to?

    She crossed over and had a bit of success in the UK for about 10 seconds didn't she. I liked her. She blew up in The Stepford Wives which was amusing.

    Even I hated There You'll Be. It was DRECK.

    The 'Breathe' album is quite fun country pop though.

    "You got me UP and DOWN
    and IN-BETWEEN
    Actin' nice then bein' REEEEAL MEAN
    OOOOOOOH
    Well you HOLD ME TIGHT
    Then you turn your BACK
    Baby, who could deal with that?
    You say you wanna work it out BOY
    Tell me
    WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?"

    Well she went a bit TOO Pop/AC for her Cry album and Country radio abandoned her, so she did a total about face and made a pure country album, which of course lost her her entire international fanbase.

    Moron. She still does well in America though.

    Does Keith Urban count as country? 'Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Thing' is rather good.

    Johnny Cash would be my favourite country artist really.

    She's still big in the US, yes. For the past 2 summers, she's done a joint tour with Tim McGraw - I think it was the highest grossing tour last year. They're doing the same thing this summer & taking all the kids along with them.

    There'll You'll Be is SO WRONG but I just can't help LOVING IT. I mean, WHERE'S THE TUNE... but I can't help love it for being so OVERWROUGHT :D

    Should I be investigating Trisha then? I take it that's a yes...

    EXCELLENT :D

    I've been adding some 2nd rate Babs to my collection recently cause I'm buying them as I find them. Till I Loved You and Higher Ground really aren't all that good... I need to hunt down those 70s albums really.

    Oh stick to 70s Babs, it all goes pear-shaped after "The Broadway album"! Though I do like "Higher ground" :shy:

    I've only given HG one spin so I'll try again. The Broadway Album is certainly better than TILY though...

    Back to Country, I'm also a HUGE fan of Nanci Griffith. She kind of crosses the country/folk divide now and I'm never sure quite where to place her... but her early stuff is pretty pure country I reckon.
