All kidding aside, I agree, Bob Wills is probably the King of Western Swing. But you have to admit, George Strait has followed in his footsteps and has kept swing alive, not knuckling under to all this new fangled lousy country that we are starting to hear, i.e., Shania Twain (Lord, what is that is she singing, she needs to be in Top 40, not Country). Anyway, she sells records cause she is pretty, not for talent. JMO!
I admire George because he refuses to cowtail to that kind of hype. He sticks to his guns about what he likes, and if he sells records, fine, and if he don't fine. To me, (not just his butt), he is the KING of country music, and always will be. Besides, Bob Wills was his idol. Need I saw more? BTW - Have you ever met him? If so, may I kiss your hand???????? heehee
