Why I Don't Hate Country Music

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I have a large amount of ambivalence regarding Country Music, let alone Western Music. Both types, in fact.

I like country music but haven't found much new stuff that appeals to me.
The remake of long white line being an exception.
There are probably others.

You're a Texan. He aint.

Lund sings the soundtrack of my youth. My dad used to complain about all the tools and equipment I broke. And he complained that I wore my hair too long (as in Lunds Hair in my Eyes Like a Highland Steer). Good Copenhagen, Truck Got Stuck, Cows Around, and Bible On the Dash also hit close to home.

Lund is the Canadian version of Hayes Carll. Or maybe Roger Miller if you're an old guy.
