  • Who is the King of Country Music?

    The lack of Hank Williams in this debate saddens me. I really wasn't going to add much more except that there are some others who can be deemed worthy such as Hank Williams and Randy Travis whom were mentioned in the comments. Williams and Cash would be at the top of the list if it was "Who is your Favorite Country Artist", but neither of them changed Country the way Acuff did.

  • Is Taylor Swift a Country Singer

    Like Travis Tritt (Here's A Quarter Call Someone Who Cares) or Hank Williams  (Your Cheatin` Heart), Love is not a requirement in country music, so this isn't a reason why Taylor can't be country.
