Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered.

John Michael Montgomery has one of the most animated personas in country music, and the go along with his tunes -- quite well.

If I'm not mistaken, a Texas artist by the name of Kevin Fowler gets pretty vivacious on stage, as well. Take a listen to this 1995 hit and tell me it doesn't sound bouncy like Fowler's 'Hell Yeah, I Like Beer.' Do it.
