There is so much awesome country music. You are doing yourself a great injustice by stating country sucks and never giving it a chance. I used to be in that camp. Once I gave it a chance, I listened to it primarily for 2 years. A lot of it is very well recorded and mastered too.

 

My favorites off the top of my head:

Billy Joe Shaver

Steve Earle

Allison Moorer

Alison Krauss

Gillian Welch

Guy Clark

Townes Van Zandt

Waylon

Willie

Cash

Merle Haggard

Gram Parsons / The Flying Burrito Brothers

Emmylou Harris

Mickey Newbury

Rodney Crowell

Robert Earl Keen

Hank Williams

James McMurtry

Loretta Lynn

Slaid Cleaves

Dylan - Nashville Skyline

Byrds - Sweetheart of the Rodeo

 

Then there is Alt-country:
The Jayhawks

Uncle Tupelo

Son Volt

Ryan Adams / Whiskeytown

Old 97's

Lucinda Williams

Golden Smog

Drive By Truckers

For those who don't live down South (and are thus not exposed to the variety of Country music), and/or haven't investigated the genre, most of what we hear is the Pop-country that brings my blood to a boil.  It's honestly an almost completely different genre!

Maybe a bit more Americana than Country, but does anyone here like Hayes Carll?

I love all types of music. and i got in to classical. To me mostly old country is worth listening to but truly theres plenty of good songs out there.
