How many of you guys listen to Aussie country? We have some damn fine artists here , people like Darren Coggan, Adam Brand and Lee Kernhaghan. We have also got some very succesful bands like The Dead Ringer band, I am interested in peoples opinions on Australian country if you have any:DN

We don't get CMT or any Australian Country here in UK. CMT did annouce that they were coming back into Europe but noone will acknowledge that . Saw Casey Chambers at Fan Fair - very good.
<br>
<br>We want CMT back in Europe!!!!!

Well, I'm about to get on your bad side, Dossy. Please don't take this personally.
<br>
<br>I get Australian CMT and the only thing I don't like about it is that they put all that Aussie stuff in it. I particularly don't like Tania Kernaghan, Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daly, Kasey Chambers and Gina Jeffries. And Slim Dusty - oh my God - lie down!
<br>
<br>Sorry I can't be positive about this. I used to like Oz rock but unfortunately I think your country music sucks. The only worse country music I know of is New Zealand country music, but that doesn't get played anywhere where I have to hear it, thank goodness.
<br>
<br>Is Keith Urban Australian? I quite like him.N

Keith Urban is aussie, but he lives in the states, oh well. And yeah old slim dusty does leave a lot to be desired! Aussie music on the whole isn't all bad though, take Savage Garden for example.:)

I remember that movie. It was really bad but I still watched it over and over and cried a lot.
<br>
<br>I used to think Rick was the most incredible looking man on the planet, especially on his Living In Oz album cover.N

I don't know that much about OZ country, but I do like other artists from there like AC/DC, Savage Garden, Olivia Newton John.
<br>BTW her duet with John Farnham at the opening at the Olympics was really really cool:):):):)
