What I like about Country music

One thing I like is that I often have no prior knowledge about the artist I'm listening to. Consequently I have no preconceptions. I can generally tell if something's old or new, but new might begin in the 80s. Old sounds of Dusty Old Men. I have no idea if I'm listening to a well known artist, a newcomer, a big star or a relative nobody. It means I can listen to the songs on their own merits. Take for example Leslie Satcher's "Love Letters". Until I googled some of the lyrics I had no idea who she was or anything about the song. It's just a great song and tells a great story. As George Michael said 'Listen without prejudice'.
