Country music fans don't mind mind making fun of themselves and their music. It's sort of a tradition -- from the cornpone comedy of Buck Owens on Hee Haw to the blue-collar standup of Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall. It's all done in good fun. Here are some good, bad, and so-good-they're-bad jokes about country music.
Know some I missed? Let me know.
1. How many country singers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Two. One to do it, and one to sing a song about all the good times he had with the old bulb.
2. What do you get when you play country music backwards?
You get back your wife, your dog, and your truck.
3. Why aren't tubas used in country bands?
Because they're heavy metal!
4. What do you get if you cross country music with rap?
- Someone who would disagree: Jason Aldean who sung the country-rap hybrid "Dirt Road Anthem"
5. The Hostage Joke
It was a terrible day. Two music lovers were being held hostage and both were going to be shot. One of them was a country music lover and the other enjoyed all types of music.
Before they were shot they were asked for one last request before they died.
The country music lover said, "I would like to listen to 'Achy Breaky Heart' 50 times in a row."
The other music lover said, "Please, shoot me first."
6. Country Singer Joke
A guy walks down Music Row carrying a guitar.
A car pulls up and a tourist asks, "Excuse me, do you know how you get to the Country Music Hall of Fame?"
"Yeah," the man spits out, "practice til you're dead!"

7. A Gay Man Walks Into a Country Bar (not derogatory, I promise!)
A gay guy walks into a country bar and says, "Just to let everyone know, I'm gay, but I won't hit on anyone. I just like country music."
The bartender says it's fine, and the man stays.
The next day the same man comes back with another guy and says, "This is my brother. I just want everyone to know that we're gay, but we won't hit on anyone. We just like country music."
The bartender says it's fine, there's nothing to worry about, and the men stay.
The next day the man comes back again. This time he has even more men with him and says, "These are my cousins and my brother. I just want everyone to know that we're gay, but we won't hit on anyone. We just like country music."
The bartender say it's really, really, really fine. But he finally he gets curious and asks, "Hey, doesn't anyone in your family like women?"
The gay man replies, "Yeah, but she doesn't like country music."
