    I mean seriously, is there any other music? Just kidding, I listen to a lot of different music but Bluegrass is my favorite. I grew up with it(I grew up in the Southern App mountains, go figure, lol) and it holds a lot of happy memories for me and puts a smile on my face.

    A few of my favorites--Randy Waller, Ralph Stanley, Del McCoury, Earl Scruggs. Oh and I live in the same county that Earl Scruggs is from, lol.

    I love Bluegrass too, the old music. I also love gospel, more the happy beat. I grew up listening to gospel. My DH and two sons feel nothing but it just makes me happy. My grandmother hummed and sang all the time when I was growing up. Her family was musical. Almost everyone played an instrument. She played the guitar. My dad could play about five instruments, some just chords. I think in the old days, there was no TV, etc. so people just made their own entertainment.

    My ex-husband was (and presumably still is) a bluegrass banjo picker. In spite of this, I still really love bluegrass [​IMG] He idolized Earl Scruggs of course; I really love Jim and Jesse McReynolds, who we saw in person, along with Ralph Stanley (I shook his hand!!) and Alison Krauss ( who our daughter is middle-named after). I also really, really love the Carter Family, which some consider folk rather than bluegrass. Jeez, I used to live in Charlotte, and I recall driving through the town where Earl Scruggs is from, but can't recall it for the life of me...Shelby? Beautiful country.

    On Saturdays here a local radio station plays bluegrass all day on a show called "Going Across the Mountain". Needless to say I make my 13yo daughter nuts. She will one day appreciate it [​IMG]

    I saw Ricky Skaggs in concert down in Austin last year. Also like Alison Krauss. Sirius radio has a pretty good bluegrass station.
