chet w Kenny Rogers (22) RE: Kenny Rogers 24 Mar 98


Thanks, Earl. That is what I was saying. Some of you may have read my own live and let live tirades before. This is a wider subject, I guess. Thinking of Kenny Rogers as real country music is like (I can't think of a better analogy) sending a hallmark card instead of writing your own thoughts and feelings to one that you care about. Alex and Steve t., you're right too. People should listen to whatever they want, whatever makes them happy. It's just that when country music quit being the Carter Family and then quit being Hank Williams and then quit being by and for people with any personal ties to rural/small town life, it became Kenny Rogers and Alabama and Hallmark Cards and (do these exist anywhere else) country crafts (usually cute cutouts of ducks and little boys peeing for the front yard and anything with lace and gingham on it for the inside). It's not as good. I want the name "country" back.

With good cheer, Chet W.
