    Thumbs up Boxcar Willie

    Sure enjoy listening to his songs. He may have died back in 1999, but every time I hear the song, "Wabash Cannonball", it always puts me in a good mood.

    I didn't grow up listening to him, but wish I had. Like to see him on that show where the older country musicians taped shows together. Think it's called Country's Family Reunion or something similar.

    There are a few, but you won't find them on country radio. Trying hard to stay off my soapbox, as I can talk all night about country music.

    Short version, check out Dale Watson, Kevin Fowler and Wayne Hancock.

    Todays country music sounds less and less country to me. I realize that from a business standpoint the writers and record companies want to make money from more than one segment of the music industry, such as pop and light rock. The songs are written, sung, and marketed to be appealing to a wider and more varied listener audience. But, it makes me turn the radio off.

    I prefer the old style country music back when cowboy hats and boots were still considered acceptable attire by music industry executives.

    Anyone ever hear the story about the record company execs that told George Strait not to wear a cowboy hat? Thank goodness he didn't take their advice.
