Giving Thanks For The Roots Of Country Music

This year, more than ever, there has been a debate about what's country and what's not.  I've never been one to judge.  I think country music is all about passion, a good story, and a lifestyle that only country fans understand.  Rock, R&B, Soul, and Rap have all mixed into country over the years, and made it what it is, so before you dismiss something as 'not country,' be thankful that from the beginning, country let other influences in, or we wouldn't have folks like the ones in this video.

Classic Joe Nichols Video Shows Him In 1996 Before He Was A Star [VIDEO]

I love finding gems from artists before they were big stars.  Before Joe Nichols had 'Sunny and 75' and even before his breakout hit 'The Impossible,' there was 'Six Of One.'  Funny thing is that I even remember this video, but had no idea it was the guy who ended up being who we know as Joe Nichols.  Enjoy the super long mullet and 90's flare!

Watching Merle Haggard I Wonder ‘Who’s The Next Legend?’

Merle Haggard put on an excellent show Tuesday night at The Centre, in what could be the last time we get to see him perform in the Tri-State.  As he went through his endless number of hits, I got to thinking, 'What's next for country music?'  I don't have a problem with the evolution of country.  I like the new stuff.  I like the old stuff.  What I don't see is iconic figures like Merle making a career like him.  So, who's next?
