    I have to break this between singers and singer songwriters. On the latter:

    Hank Williams
    Merle Haggard
    Willie Nelson
    Lyle Lovett

    I have always been partial to Don Williams, the Gentle Giant, in the country music category.
    I like how he mentions Burt Reynolds.

    Jerry Reed? I think I can do country, like the Blues Bros did it. It has to be my way. In four posts since the forum software doesn't work right.

    I can' think of a 4th country song for the Mount. So this will have to do.

    I listed the country artists on the basis of their influence on Country Music and not because of their singing.

    One country singer stands far and away above all the others and that is the Old Possum, George Jones.

    I'll stand by Merle and Willie on that count, though Lyle has had a pretty substantial impact on a lot of singer songwriters in that genre.

    If it's influence then Guy Clark hast to be included. Chris Stapelton has been steadily making a huge mark. It's great the way you can slice up the Rushmores in any particular.

    And yeah, Jones is a great one.

    Agreed.
    Not a single cluster of living fruit was, or ever will be, harvested from the tree of legality. Law can only produce “dead works,” from which we need to have conscience purged just as much as from “wicked works.”

    My dad's favourite composer is Dvorak, although he's also a huge Shostakovich proponent, especially his symphonies. I still remember him playing the seventh (Leningrad) on the old gramophone we had as a child and the march from the first movement, with it's gradually increasing intensity and dissonant harmonies to the melody was something else...(I had no clue about the political aspects of the work back then) and it was one of a few works that sparked an interest in music that was predominantly 'modern' in the classical field. Holst's 'Planets Suite' was another (fantastic work) although it was generally Russian composers who caught my ear when younger - Prokofiev's 'Romeo and Juliet' was beguiling, chock full of melodies but with a rich dissonance too, Mussorgy's 'Pictures At An Exhibition...Stravinsky's 'Rite Of Spring' simply blew me away as a thirteen year old...still does now when performed with the right intensity.

    Still, my 'Mount Rushmore' for classical music would be:

    Messiaen
    Ligeti
    Schnittke
    Stravinsky

    Hon mentions: Prokofiev, Gorecki, Part.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    My Mt. Rushmore of film directors. I'm not arguing relative greatness. I'm speaking to the four who impacted my life in film the most.

    Kubrick: left the theater after 2001 feeling like the back of my head was open. I realized that movies could be art with that film.

    Capra: made enduring, optimistic, wonderfully odd movies, including two of my favorites, It's a Wonderful Life, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

    Spielberg: mapped my childhood and left me with marvelous stories filled with imagination and characters to cherish.

    John Ford
    : no one told a better story, especially about the American west.

    Hon. Men.: Kurosawa, Bergman, Hithcock, Lean, Hawks.
