Most of the music I listen to is rich with the rhythm section, drum and bass.

Now try to find a single country drummer that stands out! That is the main reason I never got into country, too busy studying drummers.
SRV, BB, and Mark are country if you look into it.

I've never paid much attention to drummers.
SRV country? Just because he wore a cowboy hat that doesn’t make him country!

BB king was the king of blues, not country.

And yes, most country fans don’t pay attention to drums because they aren’t needed for country music. It’s all guitar, volcals and pickup trucks. Lol

Oh, and to keep on topic, the weather is cold here today, 32.

Default Country musicians

A county player from Nashville in Chicago for a few gigs, went to a jazz club and asked if he could sit in. They club band was somewhat skeptical when he opened his instrument case. But they were impressed when the he knew all songs, played wonderful fills, followed spur-of-the-moment key changes with aclarity and could take the lead at any time.

Brother-in-law to Chet Atkins and a skilled professional musician, Jethro Burns (of the comedy team Homer and Jethro) had a reputation of being able hold his own with any musician, any where, any time.

In Nashville, they may play country for a living, but they play jazz for fun.

I realize that is all that is required for country music, any thing else would be too much and not fit and that is the main reason I don’t listen to country.

Here is the second place winner of the country drummer of the year award! Lol

SRV and BB king are NOT country musicians ! And I know of no influences of country music in their past.
Mark Knopfler didn't play country music (that I know of), but was heavily influenced by Chet Atkins style, and is evident in his fingerstyle playing.

Modern country guitar lead playing is all based on Jazz progressions ... so them playing Jazz on the side is still just 'playing' guitar for them

BB King Awards:

1991 Best Country Collaboration with Vocals "Waiting on the Light to Change"

1995 Best Country Collaboration with Vocals "Patches"

1995 Country Music Association Album of the Year Rhythm, Country and Blues ("Patches" with George Jones)

SRV:

When you look to today's Texas music, it is undeniable that Vaughan is still influential. Guitarists like Cody Canada and Mike McClure have clearly taken Vaughan's unparalleled guitar playing to heart, incorporating it into their own music. The "harder" elements in country music have always come from Texas, and you can thank Vaughan (among others) for the omnipresence of electric guitars in Texas music. Even if artists here don't directly credit Vaughan for influencing their sound, it is easy to hear in a wide array of Texas tunes.

Outside of Texas, Vaughan helped create a renewed interest in the blues in the 1980s. In a time when keytars were more popular than Stratocasters, Vaughan's raw and authentic tunes were the perfect alternative.

Johnny Winter came first... Blues and more blues. Johnny Winter was born in Beaumont, Texas, on February 23, 1944

Awards are terrible for having the wrong genre. BB king is the king of blues period. Google “ the king of blues” if you need some info on his main genre.

And SRV is country because he influenced some other country guitarists? He is influential to many guitarists, that also does not make him country, sorry.

Jimi Hendrix also wore a cowboy hat. Next you’ll be saying he was country as well?

But his music is blues!!

It’s obvious, listen to his music. Or google “ what type of music did SRV play?”

Can you post some of his country songs?

Pantera is from Tennessee, does that make their music country too? Lol

I've been listening to SRV from his start to his death, I've heard all his music.

To me blues is a form of country and SRV is more rock-a-billy to me than just blues or rock.

You do realize there is more to the country sound than country-western?

Of course. There is also many forms of blues and SRV is considered Texas Blues, not country.

Reguardless of what it is to you, or me, one thing we can agree on is SRV was a great musician.

And it’s snowing here right now!!!

Were you not one of those snow birds yourself before moving to south west fl? You never did answer me if you live in Naples or in the Everglades.

I was born and raised in Miami. I know all about snow birds and Yankees that moved down there when they retired. I saw two men at least 70 fighting over a deli number once in a a Publix in Aventura. Sure was funny.
Now here in SC they call me a Yankee.

SRV a "rock-a-abilly? You must be kidding. If he was anything he was a rock guitarist with Jimi Hendrix style.
In fact he sounded just like Hendrix to me. Like he wanted to copy that sound and did.
Name the town and event he was booed at? To bad you have Google. I'm certain you would have no idea.

I'm 35 miles north of Naples in Fort Myers. I have no problems with snowbirds. Many of my neighbors and friends are snowbirds. My beef is the fact that the revenue which is supposed to pay for infrastructure to support tourism (extra EMS, Police & Fire, expanded roadways, hospital rooms, etc.) is stolen and given to billionaires who own baseball teams worth hundreds of millions of dollars. We have now built 4 professional baseball stadiums in this county and we're on the hook for about a billion by the time it's paid for. Two of the stadiums are not used by pro sports any longer because they "demanded" new stadiums. And most recently they demanded dormitories for their younger players so we had to pay for that too.

You say you have no idea but she is a country singer, so you have an idea.

Okay, we have different opinions on SRV's music.

I never listened to Hendrix.It was the Jazz Fest in Montreux no google needed.

A true SRV fan I see. I just thought he played a lot like Hendrix. Sounded like Hendrix. Just me I guess?

We started yesterday with yard work. Every winter I think I might not have a garden in the spring. So much work. But I always do.

Sorry to here that, we have the same problem here, (and I bet elsewhere). Still owe $150,000,000.oo for a football stadium that has no football team and now "they" want a soccer stadium.
