    Loved Jim Croce.......he died in an airplane crash. When I think of it several musicians did. Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens, Ricky Nelson, John Denver, Ronnie Vanzant and Stevie Gaines from Lynard Skynard.............who else?

    The day of the airplane crash that took the lives of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens is the day that the music died in American Pie - Don McClean

    Not only did Stevie Ray die, but some jack**s stole a bunch of SRV memorabilia from a storage building in Austin the other day. Hope they catch him.

    Stevie Ray was one of a kind!

    I have been a fan for 5 years now. My daughter loves country music as much as she loves her horses. Two years ago I took her to her first concert at age 5 to see Gretchen Wilson, Kenny Chesney and Pat Green. It was an amazing concert, excellent crowd. As a kid, I remember Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton and Hee-Haw. I never got into the twangy stuff though. Some of the music out there today has a lot of lyrics that you can really connect with.

    I'm actually an old hard rock/heavy metal rocker chick . . . but I married a lead guitar player in a country band, so I listen to a LOT of country music.

    DH has played with bands since he was 16 years old. He started out in two bluegrass gospel bands, and recorded an album with one of them. Then he joined a top 40 country band. They were together for 10 years and recorded an album as well. He's recently been doing fill in work with a band, and had gotten a new band together in the last couple of months. They're also top 40 country group.

    So, I sort of fell into the country scene.

    The only country concert I've ever attended with DH was Keith Urban. I agreed to go to that in exchange for getting to go see Def Leppard.
