There are lots of country music artists around.  They are just aren't played on country stations since their music isn't Easy Listening Tang Pop.

Hank?

If you're talking about country, you must mean III. And that's not rockabilly, it's Hellbilly.

Anyone care to list the defining qualities of "real" country? Or is it just something you're supposed to know when you hear it?

Is there a bridge nearby?  I need to throw myself off....

Robert Earl Keene


I saw Robert Earl Keene three years ago.  I loved his music and I'd heard how great he was live.

Holy farking shiat was he awful, despite a great backing band.  Physically incapable of pronouncing consonants.  Performed in black Rockports, olive pleated pants, and a stained black t-shirt.

And yeah, you can point out that real country fans don't care what the singer wears, etc..  But when the guy shows up to perform in shiat my grandad wears to get the paper, it's a little jarring.

Honestly, I've had more fun at Pat Greene or Zac Brown Band concerts.

Speaking of Radio, NASH FM, New York City's new country station, didn't alter their playlist one bit to play a Georg Jones song.

Actually, almost all of commercial radio playlists are programmed a week or two in advance based on focus groups reactions to "hooks" in the songs.  If Paul McCartney died tomorrow, you'd hear no more or less of his music than you hear now.

There is some free form radio, WFDU, 89.1 (Fairleigh Dickinson University, Teaneck NJ) or WFUV 90.7 (Fordham University, Bronx NY), etc., but outside of college radio, it's all pre-selected, pre-formatted, and ordered scientifically to increase ad revenue.

Saw Boland at Billy Bobs a few years back. My cousin is a huge fan (I can't name you one song of his) so I went along, mostly for beer. If the playlist and crowd that night was any indication, then he is just as much of this modern day pop-country wanna-be redneck shiat as the rest of the people in mainstream country.

I did get a CSB out of it, though:

went into the bathroom at one point, and it's just me and this other dude at the row of urinals. I'm taking care of business, as is he, when I hear the other guy say "biatch... I'm gonna punch you in the farkin' mouth." There are several urinals in between us, so I'm 99% positive he's not talking to me. I turn my head, and...

Sure enough, he was talking to his own dick.

they are much harder to find in the mainstream than they once were, but they're around.

there are some surprise country artists, too...have you heard aaron lewis (staind) do country? he actually does it quite well, imho.

and folks like brad paisley...tons of talent...one of the better guitarists around right now...good voice...god help him he can't write a non-cheesy song to save his life!

He performs half to fully drunk.  Pretty entertaining, but a little sad.  Cory Morrow lite.
