Alumni,

Sorry for the confusion, believe it or not, I was trying to help.

As far as music goes, let's face it the greats are gone. I mean of the so called "music stars" of today, I can count the good ones on one hand and have two or three fingers left over.

Francis Albert - Ole Blue Eyes, great and gone. He was the man.

Elvis, the king, gone and too soon because of a silly addiction.

Johnny and June, I believe both are gone. I know Johnny is. No more Rings of Fire for us.

Oh heck, I go on and on. the Rat Pack gone and so many more.

The intermediates are winding down their careers. Reba and others.

Of today's so called "stars". Maybe Toby, Maybe Taylor, there's maybe one more but I can't remember his name off of the top of my head.

Phil: There was 7 of us Robinson's growing up, and all but one went to college...

Martin: Which one didn't go?

Phil: Look deep into the eye's of one Cyrus Robinson...

Good to hear from you, Tiger High - I've been wondering what happened to you. Glad you didn't go off to Colorado (that's a looong way off).
You ask how I'm doing - well, I've got a bad case of cabin fever. I'm so sick of snow, sleet, rain & nasty weather. We got another inch or so of snow last night. Looks like winter is never going to end. It's hard to believe it's SPRINGTIME ALREADY!!!
Yes, my son from Louisana turned me on to Duck Dynasty & now I watch it all the time. Great show with a whole lot of good moral messages which is needed so badly in today's society!!!
You are so lucky to live down there & be able to meet the Robertson family. Yes, I'm proud to say they are all members of the same church I go to. I hope one day, I might be able to attend church services at their church.
Yes, I remember the episode where they are racing lawn mowers - when they run it again, I'll try to watch up in the stands - who knows, maybe I'll recognize a familiar face (you) ha ha!
Hey, just keep plugging along - you might even be able to incorporate your alligator farm in one of the episodes. Do you remember the episode when they found a alligator in their garage & Miss Kay became hysterical?
My favorite episode was the one where Phil & Si went to school on career day and made a talk! Now, I don't care who it is - that was funny! Talk to you later.
yeah, that was a good episode - the looks on the kids faces was almost as funny as the looks of the teachers - my favorite was the one at willie's country club (squire creek in chroudant (sp), la - while golfing, the group came upon a pond loaded with bull frogs - some of them came back later that night and did some gigging - of course, they got caught - willie had to come and explain why his family was frog gigging at the country club - of course, Sy left immediately when he saw security coming -and he saved the frogs for supper - this family could buy u and me 1000 times over, yet they maintain a common, natural, redneck life style - i believe their brother is the pastor at the church they attend - and i think it is in west monroe - there is a river (a ditch compared to ole man river) that seperates west monroe and monroe - i know that duck commander is in west monroe - think the church is too - of course, a lot of things are "staged" on reality shows - but this one is about as real as it gets - they are just a good family who believes in the Almighty and lives life as it should be lived - when phil spoke at our lions club, he made it perfectly clear that everything he had belonged to God and God was allowing him to use it while here. i am ramblin, but i do that when i talk about something i like - our local chief of police is good friends with phil - they went to school together at la tech - it's fun to listen to some of his stories - if you haven't read their book yet, ya need to - oh, one last thing before i start some yard work - phil is a republican!!!!!!

Well, being a Republican is the only FLAW I've ever heard of in Phil Robertson (the Duck Commander).

Yes, that illegal frog gigging episode is one of my favorites too. But, you did get one thing wrong - it was Phil (the duck commander himself) who took off running with the sack of frogs when he saw the security guard show up.

Phil Robertson has a true gift from God in just "telling it like it is" (in a very real down-to earth manner) and reaching right to your heart. I'm hoping this gift will bring many many souls to the Lord. Yes, I believe Phil & Kay's other son is a Minister at the Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisana, but I haven't seen any videos of him speaking or preaching yet.

Say, just how far do you live from West Monroe Louisana? Sounds like it's pretty close. Why don't you start going to church there where the Robertson's go?

Thank you for telling me about their book - you can be sure I'm going to get a copy!

Yes, you are right - SEEMS ALL THE GOOD ONES ARE GONE or THEY REFUSE TO PLAY THEIR SONGS ON THE RADIO...

Here is a list of some of the greatest men of country music. I just wonder how many of these great country music stars would have made it in today's climate & what they try to pass off as COUNTRY MUSIC TODAY?

Hank Williams, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennnings, Jimmy Rogers, Bill Monroe, Willie Nelson, Conway Twitty, Buck Owens, Lefty Frizzell, Eddy Arnold Ernest Tubb, Webb Pierce, Jim Reeves, Charlie Pride, Marty Robbins, Little Jimmy Dickens, Vern Gosdin, Faron Young, Sonny James, Garth Brooks, Hank Snow, Hank Williams Jr., Roger Miller, John Horton, Charlie Rich, Red Roley, Roy Acuff & Porter Wagoner.

This is a continuation of my last post which listed some of the GREATEST MEN OF COUNTRY MUSIC.

Below, I have also listed some of the GREATEST WOMEN OF COUNTRY MUSIC.

Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Emmy Lou Harris, Dolly Parton, Barbara Mandrell, Kitty Wells, Tanya Tucker, Brenda Lee, Dotty West, Crystal Gale, Anne Murray, Connie Smith, Mother Maybelle Carter, Pam Tillis, Reba McEntire, Linda Ronstadt, Minnie Pearl, Rosanne Cash, June Carter Cash & Lori Morgan.

Just how many of these women would make it in today's (so-called) country music scene???

In the first place, I doubt many of the women listed above would parade around half naked on a stage! I can only think of about a half a dozen (of the above) who might be willing to sink that low.

When Shaia Twain became such a sensation a few years ago with her skimpy costumes & suggestive prancing around on the state - she became fodder for a whole bunch of vulgar comments.

Some said Shaia was the hottest lap dancer in Nashville!

But sadly, it seems that is what many country music stars have become today, You don't really have to have much talent - just a pretty face & a good body & be willing to prance around half naked.

There is no doubt that some of the most talented (would be country music stars) have been passed over because they just ain't pretty & sexy enough...

So sad, so sad. And that my friends, is why all of these hot "flash in the pan" stars of today will not be remembered 5 years from now. BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO TALENT!!!

the oldest son has been on a couple of the shows - he can be seen on the christmas special for sure - we are about 30 - 40 minutes from west monroe - a very small mill village (475 population)- shopping means either going to west monroe/monroe or shreveport - about once a month we spend the nite in shreveport (about 75 minutes away), usually at the El Dorado Casino - i get to gamble and wife gets to shop - we probably go to monroe/west monroe 3 or 4 times a month - we take the back route, through eros, which is where the robertson land is, i think - that's what the chief told me - couple of my friends went to their church a couple/three months ago - said the attendance had really grown, as everyone wanted to get a close look at the robertsons - whatever it takes to get people to church - God works in his own way - oh, i was just jerking your leg on phil being republican - have no idea about his politics - just know that he is too nice to be a liberal democrat!!!!

Too nice to be a liberal Democrat??? What in the heck are you talking about? Over the last 10-15 years or so I've had a chance to observe a lot of differences between Democrats & Republicans - and there is a BIG DIFFERENCE!

First of all, Democrats are more honest - you won't find nearly as many hypocrites in the Democratic party. What you see is what you get with Democrats! Democrats, as a rule don't try to hide behind a facade of religion while worshiping at the feet of the almighty dollar.

Democrats (by nature) are more compassionate towards their fellow man than Republicans (in all areas)!

While many Democrats have fire arms to hunt & defend themselves & their family (if need be)- they also have enough sense (and compasion) to know how dangerous fire arms can be in the wrong hands.

And Democrats definately have enough SENSE (& compassion) to know we do not need military assault rifles & large magazines of ammunition accessable to the general public!!! Democrats also have enough sense (& compassion) to know we need very strict back-ground checks for anyone who purchases a fire arm. And Democrats have enough sense & compassion to know we need to close all the loop holes of not having background checks at gun shows & internet fire arms purchases...

On second thought - I would be surprised if Phil Robertson were a Republican - because he appears to be to smart & compassionate...

But it would be interesting to know how he leans politicaly. If you find out for sure - let me know.

I think we're in about 80 to 90% agreement but I am rather surprised you left out Toby Keith and Taylor Swift from your list.

Unless I missed I was kind of surprised you left out Elvis too. That was a man who sang it all, pop rock, country and gospel.

another of the greats who almost doesn't fit int a category is Francis Albert.

Dang it, there is another current male country star who is similar to Toby but for the life of me I can't remember his name.

It was no mistake I left Taylor Swift off this list! I have no idea if she has any talent or not, because her scanty clothes is such a TURN-OFF!!! I seriously dout she has any talent - because she dresses like a SLUT. If she had any real talent she would have not need to go around half naked!

And as far as Toby Keith - I don't have a clue who he is. It's been so long since I've watched the Grand Ole Opry or any other so-called country music shows, so, I have no idea who is on the top of the so-called country music world.

Turning on to that trash (which they now call country music) is just an embarassment. It's so disrespectful to TRUE COUNTRY MUSIC that it's pathetic!

The reason I left Elvis Presley & Frank Sinatra off this list is because I was listing only country music stars. Elvis & Frank were not into country music. Elvis had a style all his own (not country) and Frank was just a pop music star.

your comment about elvis not being country is off base - elvis was country - his first songs, that's alright mama and blue moon of kentucky are quite country - numerous others of his songs are country - elvis did have his own sound - it was a mixture of gospel, negro gospel, country and blues - elvis sang in churches often during his early years, both black and white - he also learned by listening to hank williams, roy acuff, and watched the slim rhodes show on a regular basis - the happy goodman family was no stranger to him, either - BB King was also a major influlence, along with many outstanding delta blues singers we never heard of - sadly, he listened to ohters as to the songs he sang, but his heart was into gospel, negro gospel, country and blues - something many fail to see in elvis is that he was a very spiritual individual and not the "druggie" so many people talk about - elvis was misled by dr george stephonalphus (sp)- because the doc gave him the prescriptions, he saw no harm in them - it's like a person has a prescription that says take 2 pills every 6 hours - 5 hours and 45 minutes after taking the dosage, the person is in severe pain, but won't take the pills for another 15 minutes because "that's what the doctor said" - he was really naive about medicine, but more importantly, he put too much trust into his doctors, as he did with everyone he considered a friend. Elvis knew more about the bible than u and me combined - had he lived, he would be ministering to the world in song - for whatever reason, we were denied his potential great ministry - God has his own plan and this one i certainly don't have anything near a clue - there is a good story about elvis peeping into a black church when he was 5 or 6 years old - i'll share it when i get back from shreveport tomorrow -

Tiger High,
You'll get no disagreement from me about what a great talent Elvis was! Heck, I've already admitted on Topix what a huge huge fan I was of Elvis (when I was about 13-16), after I got in high school, I started losing my hero worship for Elvis, but I have remained a life-long Elvis fan.

Back, when I was a teeny-bopper age 13-16, I even had my hair cut in a duck-tail style (like Elvis wore his).

I really wanted to have real side-burns, and somebody told me if I shaved the sides of my face/jaw area - that the hair would grown back in just like real side-burns on a man.

When, I told my Momma what I wanted to do - she nearly had a STROKE!!! She threatened me with death if I even attemped such a thing!

THANK GOODNESS FOR MOTHERS! Can you just imagine what a freak I would have been if I had done this & I had really grown side-burns???

I doubt I would have ever attracted any boyfriends - heck, even my husband might have been turned off if I had real sideburns! ha ha

Now, I don't really consider Elvis a country singer (that is not what he is really know for). He is mostly know for being a rock & roll, pop, and Gospel singer.

As far as Elvis knowledge of the bible, I must strongly disagree with you there! While Elvis was a deep thinker & truly a seeker of spiritual answers - sadly, it seems he sought answers from every source except the source itself - the Word of God in the Bible.

It is well known that Elvis read every spiritual book or piece of lititure he could get his hands. He also sought out advice from many different people claiming to have ALL the spiritual answers.

That's the problem today - too many people read books ABOUT the Bible - instead of just accepting the word of God which is layed out in the Bible itself.

Lot's of people have a difficult time understanding the bible. If this is the case, then they need to obtain an updated version. I'm not talking about another translation of the bible, because the King James Bible is the accepted translation of the true word of God.

But, since the language in the King James Bible is written in such a different dialog as what people use today - lots of people have difficulty understanding it.

People who have trouble understanding what they read in the bible need to get a revised version (of the King James bible) like The New King James, or the New International Version of the bible.

This two versions are written in a more modern day style - more like the dialog people use in today's society - without changing the message of the King James version.
