Awesome choice, one of my all time favorites! There are very few these days that are keeping it country, Jamey Johnson comes to mind and a few others. We'll prob never hear a guitar like Waylon's again. Most these days are singing what they think will sell and what others want to hear instead of writing their own stuff and sticking to their own sound. 'Dirt Road Anthem' and songs like that prob have the founders of country music shaking their head and rolling in their graves.

I actually made a video to 'Who's gonna fill their shoes' if you want to check it out.

Good morning everyone! Thanks so much for all of the interest and participation so far. You all are sounding great! Gonna be a great contest and tough to judge! You just might be one of the top 20 contestants that makes the auditions cut, so go ahead and start practicing those assigned songs while you can. Remember, don't just sing the songs, feel them and do your best to pull us judges into the song with you. This isn't just a vocal contest, we want to be entertained, we want the lyrics to be delivered so that we feel the words, not just hear them. Show us that you feel the songs that you are submitting. Put yourself into the story within the song and do your very best to place us panel members in that story along with you. Music is all about expression. Good luck to you all. Give it all you have to get your name on the banner and snag that gold membership!

If you have any questions, issues or concerns feel free to contact any of the following panel members:

Jeremy Hughes/stevenhughes/Host, Admin, Judge
Karen Bagno/TXTONY-N-KAREN/Admin
Allison Delgrosso/AllisonD/Judge
Joe Alexander/Singingman1966/Judge
Linda Baxter/CHARMMER/Judge
Tommy Phillippe/TommyDale/Alternate Judge

Support your fellow contestants and HAVE FUN!

You are right about Country not being what it used to be. When I turned on my local Country station and actually heard a famous Country artist (who will remain nameless) actually rapping in one of his songs, I just about swerved over to the side of the road to throw up. I could not believe it. And shame on country radio for even playing it. But that's just my humble opinion.

WELL HAY THERE TOMMYDALE! I SEE THERE'S A LIL TALK GOIN ON HERE AND I'M NOT TRYN TO PRY!
IT'S JUST LIKE JOE SAID IN HIS LAST FEW WORDS UP THERE,"JUST MY HUMBLE OPINION" IS HOW I STATE MY WORDS HERE TOO! I RESPECT ALL SINGERS FROM ANY KINDA MUSIC BACKGROUND BUT FOR ME I LOVE CLASSIC COUNTRY THE ABSOLUTE BEST. YES, I DO LIKE SOME OF THE NEW COUNTRY SONGS BUT I CAN'T GET THE FEEL OF WHAT MOST OF THE NEW SINGERS ARE TRYN TO DO! HECK, SEEMS TO ME THEY ARE JUST SINGIN WITH DOLLAR SIGNS IN THEIR EYES AND NO OTHER FEELING OR EMOTION TO IT! THE HANK SR'S, THE KEITH WHITLEYS, THE MERRLE HAG'S, THE POSSUM AND GOSDIN CAN NEVER BE REPLACED IN MY EYES! THEY LIVED WHAT THEY SANG AND THEY MAKE YA FEEL EVERY SINGLE WORD OF THEIR SONGS! YOU CAN HEAR THE HEART AND SOUL POUR OUT WHEN THEY SING! I HAVE SURNUFF TRYED LISTENIN TO THIS NEW HIGH TECH POPCOUNTRYROCKABILLY STUFF THEY PLAYN NOW AND I GET TO PLUM UPSET AND WONDER HOW ANYONE COULD REALLY LISTEN TO IT!
NOW SEE HEAR, THIS IS JUST MY OPINION AND I AINT TRYN TO START NO FUSS, JUST CALLN EM LIKE I SEE EM!
MUSIC SPEAKS TO EVERYONE IN A CERTAIN WAY AND TO EACH THEIR OWN! RIGHT MY FRIEND? RIGHT! LOL

TommyDale

Happy to qualify my humble opinion. It's my belief that Rap does not belong in Country Music. I was not referring to anything else. There is a lot of newer Country that I like! Trace Adkins, Miranda Lambert, Josh Turner, Toby Keith, and Joe Nichols are just a few of my favorite artists. I even enjoy some of the more pop type performers like Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts. But there are some that I do not like and I guess that's no different than any other era of music. But my personal opinion is that RAP specifically does not lend itself to Country Music.
