Oh, it's pretty bad. A definite misfire.

Supremes Sing Country, Western & Pop

Diana Ross's high-pitched whining is annoying. Best tracks are the last three songs (on side two of the Lp). Nice idea, but the execution is wanting; one of those good ideas that didn't hit on all eight cylinders.

Is taylor swift autistic?
or is she just pandering to an audience made up mostly of the autistic?

I thought that honor belonged to Boxcar Willie?

Or maybe he's the greatest Train-driver balladeer?
If I were a Railroad Engineer, this is most definitely what I would listen to all day long......while pounding some Night Train Express, and good ganja!

Nah, the worst Christmas album, ever, is, without doubt:

A Pan Pipes Christmas

My folks had a copy on cassette. It was red. The cheap shell made the tape squeal, which was an improvement over what was actually on the tape.

Hey, lay off Red. The greatest truck-driver balladeer who ever lived. Or was that Dave Dudley? (I asked which one was the true trucker's singer on another thread once.) Red, FWIW, covered "Convoy", the biggest trucking hit. His version, naturally, sounds less corny and more authentic.

Come on back, truckers, and talk to Teddy Bear.

I count three, count 'em, three Charlie Daniels' Christmas albums, all a few years apart in the 2000s. That's a sure-fire sign of product desperation. I wonder what next: a with-orchestra duet with Barbara Streisand, with lots and lots of shimmering violins?

Looks like the negative fairies are following folks around again.

An enthusiastic endorsement of this greatest of Christmas albums:

Christmas With Red Sovine

If you ever need to clean out a room after a Christmas party, put this one on.

Hank is also a multi-instrumentalist. When he was growing up his home had the company of artists such as Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Boots Randolph, former members of his father's band, and many others who he learned from.

Hank Jr began his recording career in the mid-sixties at age twelve with an album of covers of his father's songs. He wanted to do his own music but his mother wanted to cash in on the popularity of his famous father.

Hank Jr didn't achieve big success until the seventies when he began recording and performing his own style of music which was nothing like his father's music.

I first heard him on the radio in the seventies on the local FM rock station, along with Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, because country radio rejected them. Hank plays country, rock and blues.

My brother and I saw Hank jr live 15 years in a row. He always played to sold out audiences. At one time in the eighties he had 14 albums on the top 100 country charts. I'm sure he was drinking or drunk at quite a few shows, but I never saw him do a bad show.

Imo, he's one of THE greatest artists ever.

Has there ever been worse fiddle playing than Charlie Daniels' in "The Devil Went Down To Georgia"? If so, I haven't heard it.

Garth, had talent but what he did (sales) really changed that business and today it's all pretty darn crappy.
Merle, Buck & Conway were rock 'n' rollers in the 1950's and then they done went bad!

Hey, I met a lady who told me her son was one of Merle's mechanic! I was impressed:). Have to agree about Garth but he did pick some good songs written by good songwriters.

Country's Worst??------Hank Williams Jr.....hands down. He appeared at a
nearby county fair a couple years ago, and his singing was so out of tune
it was ridiculous. He's nowhere near the artist that his father was, and he's
only where he is now due to coming in on his father's coattails.

Wow, that's quite a quote but I really believe that Garth Brooks destroyed country music in the late 1980's acting like a bad rock star and selling 15 billion records to the blue-haired ladies. Ya wanna know country? Get yourself over to Merle's ranch near Redding and grab a beer and a 38 and help him kill some rattlesnakes! That's country.

Anything by Sugarland or Kenny Chesney makes my blood pressure skyrocket. Also the songs "Shake It For Me Girl", "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", and "Jose Cuervo" which I am proud to say I don't have a friggin clue who sings them. Country music died around 1980 or so and all that's left is the smell of it's corpse.

Amen, brother. Every time I'd hear a KR country song in the late '70s, I'd cringe. Only one I liked was "Lucille," then despised everything since.
