That DOES make me sad.  Probably not for the same reason it makes you sad.

If you've lost your parents, this song will get to you.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdapAqrcuvw&feature=related

Not a video, as such. "Wanting Memories" is a staple of a capella groups everywhere, so there are lots of (bad) versions out there.

Also on the theme of losing your father...here's Lucinda Williams singing Lake Charles. IPress the big Play button in the upper right:

Again no video...sorry, but the YouTube clips are all terrible.

Martina McBride is one of my favorite female singers. She has such a strong voice. Not like these weak ass pop singers that can't sing outside of a controlled studio environment. Check out her Independence Day.

My submission for sad video would be the Dixie Chick's Travelin' Soldier. Done when it wasn't cool to be against the Iraq war.

Nope, I thought you were saying something else.

I can imagine a lot of reactions to that video, but if you think that was cheap, hackneyed, and shitty, then:

(1) You must have a deep hatred for country music.

(2) You have no soul.

1. I really loathe top 40 country.  However, I really love good country, and would even list Johnny Cash doing Hurt as a song/video that makes me sad... he's so old.

2. I have a soul, I just thought it was an attempt at a cheap tearjerker.

Don Henley's "Boys of Summer" video makes me pretty sad.  I am not even sure I could communicate why it does, but it does.

I hate it, but I love country music. I just love real country music, not country-pop crossover crap that is saturated with glurgey tear-jerkers like this.

Here's an example of real country music conveying a sad song:

Horse Called Music

This is the Randy Travis version. I prefer the original Willie Nelson, but this was the only video I could find. This is a real country song. Sad and beautiful without being schmaltzy or the plot of something you'd see on the Lifetime channel.

Country music died the day Garth Brooks took the stage....

...with the exception of Lyle Lovett and a select few who still captures that unique sound from days gone by. 

Give me Hank Williams, Roy Acuff, Chet Atkins and Patsy Cline any day over most of the current crap.

I never understood this kind of criticism towards Garth. His music has country themes (rodeos, cowboys, truckers, etc), has a country sound and he dresses the part. His band has fiddle players and other country music specific instruments. In other words he's more country than almost all the pop country singers in the last 15 years. I guess his mistake was that he found mainstream success and brought more people to country music. This might have caused Nashville Execs to water down the country sound to make it more like Top 40 and therefore pleasing to this new audience. The success of the soundtrack for "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" should have told them that people still want to hear traditional country sounds like Bluegrass music. Nostalgia for country music from the 50's seems a little cliché.

Wha?

That music was GREAT.  The BEST country music was recorded in the 50s and 60s.  It's not nostalgia, it's that it's really great music.  I wasn't alive when that stuff came out... how could I have nostalgia for it?  I wasn't alive when the first Black Sabbath record came out either, but it's in my top 5 because it's good.

And there are bands out there right now that are doing that style of country and kicking ass.

if being cliche means living in a world without Alan Jackson's "Where Were You", I will gladly embrace that label.

My current kick is a guy named Jamey Johnson. Has a nice old school George Jones/Merle Haggard type of sound. (In fact, one of his songs is "Somewhere Between Haggard and Jones." There are some other "modern" country artists I dig - I like Sugarland, even though they have crossed over and I don't consider them real country. I love Brad Paisley, Brooks and Dunn. Then there are a lot of in-betweens I like - guys that are still making records but have been around forever - Randy Travis, George Strait, etc.

I'll take one of the Outlaws, Johnny Cash, or Patsy Cline/Loretta Lynn any day of the week over all of them, however. I have a bit of a love/hate with Garth Brooks. On the plus side the guy is a tremendous performer, and there's no question that he helped make country music mainstream. I like a lot of his songs. On the down side, he never really wanted to be a country music singer, so he's always seemed a bit of a sham to me. Somebody who happened to be really good at something his heart wasn't really into.

I am a big fan of all three eras of country music and would have to agree on the awe inspiring level of ignorance in cheeba's statement.

Defining all of country music with a single word like "twang" is like defining all of jazz with the word "soul".
