Country Music Fans Unite - Down with Bob Newhart

According to Answers, Bob Newhart is 78 today. I really like this quote from him.

"I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down.'" — Bob Newhart

Classic put down. As a country music appreciator I feel insulted. Yee Ha

One of the best concerts I ever saw was Willie Nelson at Wolf Trap. He and his band just played and played for what seemed like ages. Great music. What a performer.

Ahh dear. I love country music myself. I'm listening to our Keithie as I type.

Who needs the word 'denigrate' anyways?

I rather like Willie Nelson, although he is something of an acquired taste.

I used to work with a Merkin from Nashville who used to fix Tammy Wynette's phone system.

I like country music too and used to go to the Wembley Festival of Country years ago.

I recently heard a band at the CMA Music 2008 festival that is a nice breath of fresh air.. Ridge Runner is a nice rock and funk flavored country band that performed at the festival and I have to say i think other people who aren't die hard country fans ( or even if you are) will like. Their web address is www.ridgerunnerband.com and they are also on myspace at www.myspace.com/ridgerunnerband.

Just thought I would share these guys.
