If you are a brunette with brown eyes you stick out like a sore thumb!
Thank god hipnapster. I'm glad to know I won't have to dye my hair and get colored contacts when I come down. At least I know of one more brunette Course I won't be able to do anything about being short

My friend Susan Ashton sings Wichita Lineman occasionally when she performs and it stops everybody in their tracks. What is it about that melody that hits you square in the gut? LOVE that song.

Happy Birthday Mr. Campbell.

Wichita Lineman was written by Jimmy Webb, the legendary songwriter who wrote a string of hit songs for Glen Campbell. He also wrote Up Up and Away for 5th Dimension, a song that became a commercial jingle for one of the major airlines. Some say he got the Up Up and Away idea from the cartoon character Atom Ant. And Glen Campbell is truly amazing. I saw a VH1 countdown of the 100 biggest hits of all time, and he either sang or played on 17 of them. You haven't lived until you've heard him play the William Tell Overture on guitar.

Of course I'm just jealous being brunette with hazel eyes and pony legs . But you're right. Not all of us are impressed by that though. My love of country music is strictly the lyrics and the message. I'm not too impressed by looks and I'm sure there are quite a few of us who aren't. As far as NASCAR goes being cute won't bring you over the finish line now will it
No, but a driver can earn millions in one year without winning a single race. It's all about corporate sponsorship and how well the driver can promote Home Depot, Lowe's, Budweiser, etc.

You're absolutely right as usual. I just like to pretend that corporations haven't taken the fun out of everything. I hate to come out of my bubble I guess it's cause everything seems so out of control that you feel powerless to stop or change it. Ignorance is bliss ya know Thanks for putting my feet back on the ground.

Northcountrygirl, I hate to break it to you, but I am 5'9", blond, and blue-eyed. My kid had to get it from somewhere!

That's okay, if you are a brunette with brown eyes, you will be considered exotic. Men will swoon over you!

The reason that good-looking guys make a mint in Nascar endorsements is because Nascar widows demand it. We need a little happiness, too, you know. The only thing that I have to look forward to EVERY FREAKIN' SUNDAY is commercials by Michael Waltrip and Kasey Kahne.

OHHHH!!! That's funny. Sorry bout that! Well I'm 5' 9", brunette and hazel eyed so I guess I'll really stick out. So much for keeping a low profile. My husband could probably do without the swooning part though. At least while he's watching anyway. He's 6', blond and blue eyed and so is my step daughter so they'd blend right in.

I haven't read all the posts, but for the most part I hate all new country (obviously there are some exceptions). Generally, I listen to bluegrass. But, I love old country like Hank Williams Sr., Alabama, & Nitty Girtty Dirt band, etc.

Rodney Atkins (new country) is from my hometown of Greeneville.

I love Old Country. Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Sr, Kitty Wells, ect, ect. Today's Country I really do not care for. There are a few I like. My all time favorite is George Strait...he sings so effortlessly and he looks great in Wranglers too. LOL
I also love Bluegrass from Ralph Stanley to Doyle Lawson to Claire Lynch.
I like the Stones, Meatloaf, Pink Floyd, Grand Funk Railroad.....oh gosh, I am dating myself.

One of the many reasons I love country music.
That's the CMT Music Festival (it used to be called Fan Fair) in June. Come on down and go to the show. It's reasonably priced for what you get. And they have places where you can meet and get your picture taken with the performers. Some of the bigger stars have been opting out of doing this in recent years (and it would still be hard to met Reba, or Faith, or Garth Brooks), but there are a few surprises every year.

Then if you hang around for a couple of weeks you can go to Bonnaroo, which is held south of Nashville. It's the Woodstock of the south. Big show, big crowds.
