    His live performances have mostly been an FU to his fans. Can't understand a word he sings and he arranges old classics in a way even hardcore Dylan fans have a tough time recognizing.

    Went to a minor league ballpark show a years ago with Willie Nelson, Mellencamp and Dylan. The first two put on very professional shows. We walked out a little over halfway through the Dylan show.

    Some are musicians, others are performers, and some are artists.
    Dylan is an artist, for better, for worse.

    I don't have a long list but George Strait and Brooks & Dunn are easily my two favorite. Alan Jackson my favorite voice and Randy Travis has some great songs.

    When I was a kid my parents listened to Country music all the time, KFROG. I can't do Country anymore, but back then I remember liking George Strait.

    This is so hard.
    I totally have discarded most of the bands who would be in my top 10 if this was high school or college.
    GNR was my first modern rocknroll love. But too few albums and as ive grown older I listen to them less and less.
    But I LOVE so many of their album tracks a lot more than the songs that first made me like GNR.
    Dust N Bones, Civil War, So Fine, Estranged, One In A Million, Used To Love Her, etc... I can go on for days here.

    Ok, So GNR makes the cut.

    Then there is Metallica and the Black Album. Great when it came out because of all the push metal was getting due to it.
    But that may have ruined other metal groups trying to ape their style.
    After a few years it was hard to listen to any of those songs after soooo much airplay.
    Yet I can never tire of anything in Puppets or Justice or their best ever record Ride the Lightning.
    On the strength of those 4 and Kill em All they make the list.

    Doors
    Zep
    Beatles
    Those 3 are gimmes and my classic music touchstones.

    Speaking of classic do composers count because I listen to John Williams scores pretty frequently and can never get enough.

    I need to dance so Erasure and Depeche Mode.

    I really like Sublime, for many reasons not just one but that one too.

    And of course Wu-Tang Forever.

    That is 10 right there.
    Ill get the other 15 some other time.

    I can't listen to the country music that's currently on the radio. Not for any stuck up or fanatical reason. It's just bad. Horrible sound
    Brooks & Dunn were one hell of a duo. Of your list of country singers, I too enjoy Garth Brooks... although something about him personally I don't like for some reason. Shania Twain used to be great. Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under is a good one I still listen to every once in awhile lol
    Randy Travis isn't necessarily one of my favorites either, but he's covered some great classic songs . He and Josh Turner did a concert together about 10 years or so back. They did a great duet of Long Black Train, Three Wooden Crosses, and King of the Road.

    I'm not going to lie... I have also always had a man crush on Tim McGraw and like most of his music from the 90s and early 2000s.

    I like most soft rock and many of the bands folks have mentioned in here but if not fanatical by any stretch. I liked Green Day when I was younger, but the more I listen to the actual lyrics...not so much.
