I really, really dislike him. I can't explain why. His music just sounds so hokey and repetitive.....he just irks me....

there are only 3 exceptions....

I love, "Midnight in Montgomery"....might be something about the whiskey....

Of course there's, "It's 5:00 Somewhere".... :drink:

and now I can't remember the other one...good song, but the name escapes me....

Out of all the "new" country artists I think he's a lot closer in spirit to what I think of when it comes to country music. I'm not a fan but it meant a lot when he stood up for George Jones during one of the country music awards shows a few years ago when they tried to cut George's time onstage. How sad it is that country music has forgotten the very folks that pioneered the music such as Jones, Cash (until he died), Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings (see Cash), and Loretta Lynn. I just loved how Loretta let the country music folks have it when she accepted her award for Best Country Album earlier this year. How remarkable that both she and Cash got the recognition they did without any help from country radio whatsoever. Nothing sends a bigger "fuck you" to the Nashville establishment than that.

I agree Jah. He is true to his music. Writes songs from the heart. I enjoy his music, but like a lot other better.

Now Toby Keith, there's someone I cannot stand!

His old stuff before he got cocky is good. Please tell me you don't like "Mockingbird" or "Honkey Tonk U"

I'm also not in the Toby Keith camp. Speaking of which, this is a review of his lastest record:

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/ ... ayer=false

Toby Keith Honkytonk University (DreamWorks Nashville)

Toby Keith, like any Nashville pro, follows the trends. First, he sang rowdy hits such as "You Ain't Much Fun." Then, in the late Nineties, when country fans wanted sensitive lover boys, he obliged with "Dream Walkin'." When Bush took over and right-wing meatheads were in, he became Mr. Shock'N' Y'All. (Hell, if Al Qaeda invaded the U.S. of A. tomorrow, Toby Keith would hit the radio next week with "Ridin' My Camel to You.") But with the war in the toilet, Keith sounds lost and confused. Honkytonk University is the most downbeat record he's ever made, with none of his usual humor. Even the yee-haw title track, on which he longs to "get down with my boys in Afghanistan and Baghdad City," is no fun even by his own dipstick standards. (ROB SHEFFIELD)

No, I don't like either of those songs.

I do like "Stays in Mexico" :clap:
