You are welcomed here in the Forum. I'm sure most of us have been exposed to other music and personally I like, because of my parents raising me this way, to appreciate all forms of Music. I love everything from Chamber Music, long hair music, to top 40 , but as I have aged, I think I'm getting back to my roots( which is Country) This is Alan's Board and he Sings Country Music is why we post about it. It would be rude to post on his Site about others , unless it's in the Off topic..
I guess most Fans here just love Country Music and are Fans of Alans and others. Even Alan Has mentioned Elvis and he re-did the ole Jerry Lee Lewis, I think it is, "Great Balls Of Fire" Country Style.I liked Charlie Rich, myself..
Not to worry, some days I feel out of place. Terry is busy working and some others don't post as much as before and frankly I miss them ,I can honestly say that Alan has the nicest group of Fans, I have met only nice ones. Enjoyed it so much. Drop by once in a while to post. The forum changes as we get new Fans from all over the world.
Many people are Fans of Toby or other people in the AJ Off Topic. Drop by when you can, you can always put your opinon in the OFF topic..we are mostly family people and you should feel welcomed..so sorry if you don't.Time is limited some days
Take Care and return soon. Jerrie-MS
BTW- I love the Blues living near Memphis and hearing it there. W.C. Handy was Great in Blues, although I think he was from Alabama. Also Love BB KIng from near us in Iuka, MS.Elvis was huge where we lived, being near Memphis. His birthplace is near My mom's old Homeplace,near Tupelo, MS. Elvis actually sang Gospel in Memphis with the Blackwoods in
background, his Mom loved Gospel, he did that for her. Elvis was a really good Singer who died much too soon. Jazz I love it, we have Jazz Festivals here. It originated in the south."Satchmo", better known as Louis Armstrong ! Loved his "What A Wonderful World."and the great Nat King Cole..had a wonderful voice!.. I went through the Beetles, Elvis,Rock and Roll,
amd Loved James Taylor because my Sister's son who died so young, used to play Guitar and would sing all his Songs.
"Time In A Bottle" etc..My son turned me against Rock, playing it so loud, in our Home growing up LOL Intil he was older and I talked him into listening to All types of music. Lots to appreciate in all Genres. He teases me about being Country ha!
We got Nashville on our TV and Radio and we listened to the Grand Ole Opry in the Country, it was so wonderful years ago
and still is, thanks to Alan Jackson and more like him.My Mother loved Hank Williams he was to appear,Mom was so excited, but he called in that they got lost on the Country roads, I sincerely doubt it, died too soon.,many , many greats in Country! I liked Tammy Wynette, she lived her heartache, I think, but one could tell by her singing, she lived it..Now I listen to Alan mostly but Harry Connick Jr is niceto listen to also. I like also this Country or whatever it is called.On You Tube.-Husky Burnette - "Dog Me Down" ft. Bethany Stump of River City Hustlers . I think they are from Chattanooga LOL So my taste are really varied huh.. oh Yes! Love the Symphony to!
I can't wait to see Alan soon..He is the Best in Country music, my opinon, but your tastes might be different. we can choose whomever we like to listen to. I listen to radio a LOT but some Country Stations are closing, a shame..
