Country that don't suck

It's OK. I always talk shit to country music lovers. I can't help it. I was born a Rocker, and will stay that way for life. My wife's actually a fan of country, and listens to it sometimes when I'm not around.

But everyone knows my car won't play country music. My amplifiers even refuse.

Here's my favorite country song.
I was always hard rock or thrash but my horizons have broadened through the years. Hey, you like what you like. How about this.

Well at least you can laugh about it now brother. Fathers of that generation were an interesting breed. I remember when I was 13, was at a camp ground we went to in the summers and was doing work for the owner on a cottage. Was up a ladder when the older guy I was working with banged onto me with a second ladder. I shoved it away and it pissed him off so he swung it back and knocked me off my ladder and I fell about 12 feet to the rocks below. I limped back to my father who saw the whole thing. First thing out of his disappointed face, " why didn't you kick him in the nuts". I forgave him for all the things he did as I refuse to carry all that anger with me. I hope you have been able to do the same.

Daddy was one in a million. It was my Mamma who was the one of nightmares in my family. When she died 3 years ago it was such a relief. The sad thing was she hid herself from the outside world, so only close family knew how she was. All my scars are on the inside.

Yes I thank him and moved on he was a military man after he caved my chest in he went back to Vietnam and as far as I know he did not come back
That is unfortunate. I went the other way, left my father and spent 2 years homeless from the age of 15 to 17. Sleeping in abandoned cars and buildings seemed like a better life. Was not until years later that I reconnected with him at my grandfathers funeral. I was grateful I was able to form some kind of relationship with him before he died. I suppose many of us have such things from our childhood, I think the key is to not let it define who we are now. That much is our choice.
