I grew up listening to 90's country as a kid so that's the era of country music I love listening to the most, along with some 80's country. I have fond kid memories of listening to Brooks & Dunn, Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Garth Brooks, LeAnn Rimes, Alabama, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss & The Union Station, George Strait, Dixie Chicks, etc. on the radio.
Now listening to Dolly Parton.
I got into Dolly lately because I heard a couple of covers of 'Jolene' and I wanted to know the original and I should have known it's a Dolly song.
When I was younger I didn't like country music. I still wouldn't really say that I love it but it fits best in some situations: by a camp fire or when you're at a summer cottage or alone....
I don't know much country artists, I know Dolly (who doesn't )
My uncle didn't listen to anything else but country and Elvis. So I must have heard some oldies when I was in his company.
