    For classic country, it's a toss up between Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard :) I also love Tom T. Hall. His songs are fun sing-a-longs.

    For modern country, I've recently developed an infatuation with Keith Urban :D

    Oh and this just reminded me, the very first album (it was a cassette tape actually) that I remember buying with my own money was the "Poncho and Lefty" album that Merle and Willie Nelson did. I was only about 7 years old but I so loved that song. I think I still have that tape. lol I heard the song the other day on the radio and had to stop what I was doing and just listen. :)

    Chuck Wagon and the Wheels.
    The Dusty Chaps.

    Only those who lived in Tucson in the late 70's and early 80's would be familiar with them; these were local country rock bands which had big followings locally at that time.

    Jerry Jeff Walker.

    He did a song called Honky Tonk Music which was one of the Dusty Chaps original tunes.

    Dixie Chicks, "Goodbye Earl" (love to ECS to this)
    The Man in Black was, of course, the Man--he even got to be a Columbo villain! :D

    Yes, he wrote the song; I think while he was in a New Orleans jail.

    The version that was the big hit was done by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

    I thought so :D I like that song!
    Robbie Williams did a version of it recently. He's another guy I adore.

    It's hard to choose a favorite.

    Some of my choices:
    George Strait
    Tracey Lawerence
    Kenny Chesney
    Sarah Evans
    Tim McGraw

    It's too hard to pick.....
