    You're going to find a lot of Johnny Cash fans here.

    Personally, I can't get enough of him.

    Are you familiar with Los Straitjackets?

    Probably just easier to tell you what I don't like.

    Rock, country, blugrass, blues, folk, reggae, beach music, R&B, etc.

    And as far as radio, I love BBN's (Bible Broadcasting Network) music times, especially late at night when it is so soothing. Can't get it everywhere tho unless you listen on the internet. I can tune in when I'm in SC, but not in PA where we are.

    I actually used to listen to a lot of punk rock, but after Cash died, a friend of mine gave me this CD with Folsom Prison Blues on it, and I heard " I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die" and I was like whoa! But I got into his stuff a whole lot, and i quit the whole punk thing whern i rededicated my life to Christ. It's almost all I listen to. most of the surf stuff I listen to is Dick Dale, The Ventures, and whatever is on AOL Radio...I think I may have heard Los Straightjackets. And I just wanna say I don't like country music, I just like Johnny Cash. [​IMG] Southern Gospel too, I can't really stand any other kind of worship music believe it or not...

    If you like punk (or, in your case liked punk), you might want to check out a band called Jason and the Scorchers and another band, if you can find them, called Rank and File.

    Rank and File disbanded years ago and so did Jason and the Scorchers, although Jason and the Scorchers do get back together every few years.

    Mike Ness, of Social Distortion (and a Christian, by the way), has a great album of covers of country standards called "Under the Influence".

    Trent Summar and the New Row Mob are pretty good. If I can figure out how to compress a file for you, I'll send you a couple of their songs to listen to.

    Hank III always good.

    Robbie Fulks is very good. His music is hard country in the Bakersfield style, but he writes from that Rank and File, Elvis Costello school.

    Speaking of Elvis Costello, check out his country album, "Almost Blue". You can tell how much he loves country music and his respect for the music really comes through on that albums. He also does a pair of very good duets on Ricky Skaggs' long out of print, "Live in London".

    I don't know how familiar you are with the whole alt.country or "insurgent country" thing, but if mainstream country's a little too much for you, there is a movement of country artists who came out of punk and rock music, who do country from that background.

    Next time you're at a bookstore that has a large magazine section, look for a magazine called No Depression.

    It caters to people in your shoes, who come from a punk background who like country music (or who don't know they like it, yet.)

    I know you say that you don't like country music, but from what you're telling me that you do like, I can tell you that there is a lot of stuff out there in different underground movements that you'd like a lot.

    I'm trying to wash my brain of punk music, it's probably the worst thing spiritually to ever happen to me, ever. I hate the fact that for almost 10 years that I chose THAT over Christ. For me it just made me angry and cold and justified me getting drunk and destroying things and doing a lot of stuff I'm still repenting of. The only punk band I would ever dream of allowing myself within 10 feet of a radio or stereo to hear would be the Ramones, or on a liberal day, a band that played that kind of style. I heard of Mike Ness' country album, I used to listen to Social Distortion. In fact they were a main influence of a lot of punk bands in this area. Hank III was in punk bands when he was a teen, I've heard. In one of his videos he has on a Misfits shirt. I had to sit a little while and pray about what I was going to type because I think it is very important. I'm saying that in my case, in hindsight, that punk rock was the LAST thing I needed at that time in my life. For the longest time I thought it was my savior. I thought that I'd be dead if it wasn't for punk rock. Truth be told, I was closer to being dead because of it. Too much anger, too much agression, no hope. There's nothing edifying about it at all. It may seem liek I'm an old timer or something but I just turned 24 in December. Once God brought me so low to make me realize that none of that stuff I listened to is going to help me on any REAL level is when I finally gave it up. That's God's grace. I still have a hard time fighting what I used to think and used to believe but I know that the Lord has his hand on my life, and I know that He's in control and not me. But that's punk rock stuff, and heavy metal stuff. I like certain other stuff as long as it's not anything that I stumble on. Liek when I was into punk, I used to get picked on because I liked the band Weezer. I still do to a point, but I guess what I'm trying to say is, I know what's TRULY important in life, and by His grace I'm clinging to it. Music is ok, but Christ is my savior.

    OK. That's an admirable attitude. I wouldn't want to suggest that you do anything that would make you stumble in any way, but I still think we can find you some good country (or, at any rate, country-esque) music to listen to that would show you that there's some really good stuff being made in different underground scenes, without tempting you to do something that would go against your conscience.

    I like music. I have heard songs in all genres that I like.

    But I really like bluegrass.
