    You all inspired me to take out the Norah Jones CD I was listening to and pop in Alison Krauss.

    Off the top of my head:

    I Will Remember You--Sarah McLachlan

    Sweet Old World--Lucinda Williams

    Fire and Rain--James Taylor

    Leader of the Band--Dan Fogelberg

    Poncho and Lefty--Willie Nelson

    and Whiskey Lullaby gets to me too.

    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Now I don't feel like such a dork. I listen to country music almost exclusively. I love an old song by George Jones named He stopped loving her today. I always imagine he was singing it to his ex wife.

    He stopped loving her today is a fine choice, Muduh. At the moment I'm listening to Barbara Mandrell (with George Jones) singing

    I was country when country wasn't cool

    The song always gets to me, particularly upon George's entry. I'm forgetting the timeframe, I suppose it came out at about the high tide of Urban Cowboyism, but I personally associate the song as also a slap at the "New Country" that appeared about the same time, when it became difficult to find a station that was playing anyone that had been around earlier than the last two years.

    Country music always attracted me as a genre that honored those that had paid their dues, and I found it personally disappointing at the time for all the young and less talented (IMO) turks overnight getting all the credit I didn't believe they had quite proven themselves worthy of.

    Leftcoaster, we seem to have something in common. I don't really care for the newer country music. I like the old "beer drinkin' songs". George Jones and Randy Travis are two of my favorites.
    I also like the album made here in Memphis way back when. Was it called Class of '58? something like that anyway. Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and several others. Now I have to email my son and ask him the name.
