    I like this:

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    If it's modern country you're not missing anything

    I agree, modern/contemporary anything is pretty lame. I think my favorite all-time Country artist is Hank Williams. He is a fixture of my days as a sharecropper in Dix Hills N.Y. I got back into Country sort of when I got cable. CMT had some hot chicks that could sing. But I regress, that was so last century.

    George Strait, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Alabama, Brooks n Dunn, Trace Adkins, Miranda Lambert, Montgomery Gentry, Eric Church, Merle Haggard, Reba McEntire, Tanya Tucker, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, Tracy Lawrence, Blackhawk, Diamond Rio, Hank Jr., Conway Twitty, Randy Travis, Waylon Jennings, Earl Thomas Conley, Ronnie Milsap, John Denver, Sara Evans, Chris Ledoux, Gary Allan, Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, Blake Shelton, would be a few I’d want to include in my collection.
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same.

    That’s definitely narrowed down. Those will get you started.

    ^^^^ Can't go wrong with Jeremy's list. There are probably another 50-100 great to good ones to add. Do you prefer modern country or the older classic honky tonker's of the 50's (too many of them to list)? How about Goober? :)

    Not a country music fan (surprisingly), but I like Chris Stapleton.

    Also in my collection: Garth Brooks, George Strait, Hank Jr., Clint Black, Chris Ledoux, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Merle Haggard, Kenny Chesney, and probably a few others.

    Alison Krause. Outstanding voice, and as an added bonus, her recordings are top notch.
    Too much stuff to keep track of.

    And from Decatur Illinois just down the road a piece from I.
    I'll take the ice picks out of my ears for her. The recordings are sublime.

    Gram Parsons is pretty fantastic like Doc posted. Linda Ronstadt did some County/Country Rock stuff on her earlier records. I DIG that stuff.
