What Have I Done?

I patted myself on the back when I first got the Llama-ettes into listening to country music in the car. I reckoned that, if nothing else, it would help steer them off the likes of pop, hip-hop and other genres of what passes for music these days.


They're off with the Missus to see Flicka this afternoon. And they're terribly excited, not because the movie features a nice horsey but because Tim McGraw stars in it.

Tim McGraw? Poo.

Now Conway Twitty! There was a man with a head o' hair...and you've haven't seen anything until you've spotted your kids bopping their head in time to his music.

Introduce them to Hank Williams. Now that's country!

Well as a matter of fact, I've been working to develop a system of categorizing the songs that come on the radio between "real-sounding" country and "new" country, the former being much prefered.

So the gels are beginning to appreciate the difference between songs like "Prop Me Up Against the Jukebox," "You Ain't Much Fun Since I Quit Drinking," "Pick-Up Man" and "All My Exes Live In Texas," on the one hand and, well, everything else on the other.

Pffft. With a few notable exceptions, most modern country ain't nothing more than pop with a twang.

Hank Sr.

Need I go on?

BNS, I much prefer the list you provided over some of the stuff on the radio today.

Now, you need to get them to listen to Faith, Sheryl, Shania, so you can introduce music videos to them. you know, as a daddy daughter thing.
