Country music is not popular here because KHEY plays the SAME songs over and over and over again.It get's boring.Their afternoon guy is brutal.At 5:00 on friday when I'm driving home I want to hear some music to get me pumped.Scott McCarthy(I think thats his name)plays music so boring that by the time I get home I want to punch my wife,kick my dog and kill myself

A few years back........25 maybe we had 3 country stations then Clear Channel started buying them up and now all we have is KHEY. This used to be a town where the top country acts would come but when they are booked into a venue like the rotting coliseum or the acoustically challenged Haskin's center and t he prices are $50 a ticket........you are not going to get too many fans out. Country fans are the backbone of this country but we are not the rich Symphony crowd nor the "mi primo knows somebody who gives him tickets gratis" crowd either. Book a good Country group into Cohen some early fall evening and watch the Rednecks come out especially if t he tickets are cheap like they are for all the Mexican groups.......under $30.

It's been documented by big university studies that country music kills brain cells and contributes to incest and inbreeding.

Maybe El Paso should learn more about the late great Marty Robbins. He sang a lot more than country and what a beautiful voice! I would guess if you had a Marty Robbins Festival you would have a real winner for your city, the city Marty loved and made famous!
