Welcome to this nwbg list, Sue! I remember when Flatt & Scruggs or
Reno & Smiley were considered "country." I still love to listen to
old classic country music from the 1930-50s. Can hardly go wrong with
old songs sung by Hank, Ernest, Patsy, Eddy, Gene, Johnny, Red,
Lefty, Woody, Johnny, George, Webb, Charley, Tex, Porter, or Faron.
There was a time in the 60s when the fiddle was not vogue with either
country and bluegrass bands. Too "hillbilly" said the record execs.
But it seems like the Dobro really took off about that time. I'm real
happy to see the mandolin being used by some country bands today. I
guess that I like some of the acoustic country, alt-country,
insurgent country, Texas outlaw country, etc. being performed today.
