Old Artist In Country Music

the other day i saw a brand new music video for kenny rogers, and i've recently seen dolly parton and loretta lynn on the boob tube as well. oh, and don't forget johnny cash a few years back. this is something very unique to country music. country music is about the only genre of main stream music that an older artist would get a record label to back them. country music has even had artist that use to be regarded as pop or rock artist during the 70's, 80's, and 90's pop their head in. in the last few months i've seen bon jovi and cheryl crow on cmt. you know, most every other genre of music seems to have an age span of 16 to 40 with most of the artist being closer to 16 than 40, but country's age span is 16 to 75 with most of the artist in the middle of those two numbers. country music isn't trendy or overly popular by any means. maybe that's why i like it, because i too am not trendy or overly popular.

Country music is my favorite too! Maybe it runs in the family:) I do like lots of other music as well, but country is the best in my eyes.
