While scowering the radio late last night, I found two great classic country stations. KWKH-AM in Shreveport, Louisiana and KRVN-FM (it could have been a "Friday night oldies" type program though) in Lexington, Nebraska.

I always knew that some of these guys had serious issues, but looking back at it, it's like "He did what!?" Like George Jones, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, among others are perfect examples. I mean these guys were real success stories of rise, fall, rise again and triumph, thusly they are personal heroes of mine.

Desert Kid,

What a great post! I've loved country music since the early 50's, when I attended dances at our community hall every Saturday night. I've collected music, tapes, CD's, albums for years. My wife and I even did DJ work at weddings, parties, etc. for a couple years. I like all the artists you have mentioned, but I'm still always looking for music I don't have. I don't care for many of the newer artists, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Big & Rich, Montgomery Gentry, and others like them. They're just not what I call 'country', they don't look country and they don't sound country. If Kid Rock comes on the TV, I turn it off, he makes my skin crawl, besides that, he can't sing. I like most music except Hip Hop and Rap, but Country will always be first.

I'm glad you like it. Being my age and liking this kind of country is too strange for some folks I know. I grew up around my grandfather who listened to this all the time, and I love it all so much.

I know that old country singers liked to get around back in the day, but looking through my local paper's archives I found that George Jones, Hoyt Axton, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Kline, Lefty Frizzel, Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell and Roy Clark had short stays in my hometown during the mid and late 1960s at the Buena Vista Hotel (with the ever notorious "Matador Room") and a nearby bar on the highway 70 called "Blocky's", which Waylon Jennings stopped by periodically.

Anyone have anything similar?
