Friday Tunes - Redneck Music: Then and Now

My reader probably knows that I'm quite into my country music. My taste in that area is quite varied, but there are some die hard country fans out there who think only traditional music is real country and the modern pop variant isn't really worth the name

I disagree. There is some reall pants, but there's also some very good modern country, in my humble opinion

I though tonight we could have a look at some traditional country compared to some modern stuff

If you hate country music, look away now

Then (1964)
George Jones - The Race Is On

That's one of my all time favourites

Intermediate (1990)
Alan jackson - Chasin' that neon Rainbow

Another personal favourite of mine

Now (2011)
Big and Rich - Fake ID

Then (1968)
Merle Haggard - mamma Tried

Intermediate (1984)
George Strait - The Fireman

Now (2014)
Brantley Gilbert - Bottoms Up

Then (1967)

Intermediate (1986)
Steve Earle - Guitar Town

Now (2010)

Then (1974)
Merle Haggard - The Old Man From The Mountain

Intermediate (1985)

I could go on all night, but I'm going to go get drunk instead

My favourires are probably the intermediate ones; 70s and 80s. What about you?
