I understand the joke (Both kinds of music!) but I'll admit I've never understood the distinction.

Favorite music for me:

Linda Loveless (studio canned stuff, for sure! but 'blame it on your lyin' cheatin' two-timin' double-dealin' lovin' heart...you can't beat that sentiment!)

Neko Case (country soul, but her other band is from vancouver!)

D.L. Menard (sure sounds like country music, but it's in french!)

Jo-el Sonnier (see D.L. Menard.)

If anyone can tell me whether these artists are country or western, much obliged!

TSOL is great too. I'd suppose they could be Western (geographically) but not country. My band opened for them once or twice back in the day.

I wonder what Beethoven would have thought of country music.

BTW I used one of the new amps yesterday.  Worked perfectly, thanks.

If I have to listen to Country, I listen to Gram Parsons or the old "Outlaws" stuff (Waylon, Willie, Kris, Cash).

I'll have to check out some Gram Parsons.  I definitely like a lot of the outlaw stuff (although I haven't found any Kris Kristopherson I really like)

I've been wearing out the Asleeep at the Wheel tribute to Bob Wills.

For the most part I totally agree.

I'm not sure what is "Americana" and what is "Alt country", but I listen to a lot of this stuff.

The Flatlanders, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, The Bottle Rockets, Uncle Tupelo, Bill Malonee and the Vigilantes of Love, pretty much anything on Bloodshot Records.  There is tons of this stuff.  I've also been into old hippie country weirdness like The Flying Burrito Brothers.

Thanks Dave.

Your Welcome.  Everybody, BTW, should check out the Flatlanders.  My favorite show last year at Old Town.  They are the three greatest songwriters in Austin right now.  Think Townes Van Zandt and John Prine (should've been on my list.)  Jimmie Dale Gilmoure, Joe Ely, and Butch Hancock.  Awesome stuff.

That's Patty.

Unless you are referring to the porn star Linda Lovelace (I don't think she sang any country songs).  Laughing  Laughing

My 1st album as a kid was "Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison".  While growing up, all the kids in my neighborhood were listening to the Beatles on "WLS 890 in Chicago", I was the only one listening to "WJJD the Country Giant".  For me...it was "both kinds...country ...AND western".  I grew up on the "original" GREATS back in the 60's!

See, even the punk kid from Jersey knows there's a difference.

I was flipping through some channels last night and learned that Nascar basically 'evolved' from the Prohibition era.  

People driving around with Whiskey or Moonshine would often modify their cars both in the suspension (so it wouldn't look like they were weighted down with booze), and also tweak the performance of the vehicle for speed.  

This was so they could get away from officials without getting captured and perhaps killed.  The fastest cars would win.  

So after the Prohibition ended the drivers continued to build race cars and drive them, hence Nascar.

Yup...I have no use for Nascar either...
Old country (if any) for me too.
