        Dolly Parton is about the last one left.

          Then she is listening to the wrong country music. When Lady Antebellum is the next article in the stream, I know that is the case.

            She's right. I can listen to Merle, Wille and Waylon all day long. But contemporary country is just pop music presented with a country accent. The only one I can think of that is doing something interesting with the genre currently is Sturgill Simpson - and he's practically been run out of Nashville for being a nonconformist.

              I suppose she has forgotten what the old timers were saying about the “country” music she and her contemporaries were making.
              It was called dead then too. What we hear today must be zombie country. Just be sure wear a Stetson.

                You're listening to the wrong country too. Try some real country...

                      Loretta Lynn was pals with, and toured with Patsy Cline. I wonder what she thought of the Nashville Sound. Many purists back then hated it.

                        Yep. One of the running themes in the Ken Burns thing was - what IS country music.
                        It changes.
                        I went to shows featuring Loretta Lynn, at her prime, the early 70’s, BTW,

                            I wonder what Alexa would do if you asked for The Possum.

                              Of course it changes. I just don't remember it being called dead.
