Like @contra@ I can't stand the country music genre. I hate that twangy slide guitar sound and yes, most of the lyrics sort of blend together for me. I know this is not the case with every song, and I also understand that there is good and bad music in all genres.
Something like Metalcore or death metal isn't my cup of tea per se, but I can also appreciate talented guitar players or what have you. For country music -- I usually can't appreciate or identify with anything.
I do however like Johnny Cash, but I suppose a lot of people consider him closer to Rock than Country, at least for a certain area of his discography.
