globalwarmingpraiser: The worst part is that the ones that actually make it big and like country music have to hide it. Gary Allan is about the only one that gets radio play that isn't shy about his ideas about country music. I am waiting for Elizabeth Cook to su Miranda Lambert for Gimmick infringement.


Are you one of her Beautiful Outlaw People? I am :)

You guys ever stop to consider that the reason country music doesn't sound the same is because newer artists weren't raised by depression era or world war era people?  You want the music to be honest, but how bad is it supposed to be when damn near every country artist was raised with cable tv?  Music evolves, just like every other damn thing.

GibbyTheMole: , and Luke Bryan is name-dropping rappers


And for this jackass, at least country joined the 21st century.  There is plenty of collaboration now, and it's not a bad thing.

Rev. Skarekroe: DrSansabeltNoShiatSlacks: Show me the next Haggard or J. Cash.

EyeballKid: No matter how correct the statement, Alan Jackson is the incorrect person to be expressing it.


What's sad is that really thinking about it I can't name the last big artist who had actual country elements in their music. Most country today seems to be pop with a cowboy hat.

If you're calling WEW a "bearded hipster" then them is fightin' words. Duke up, boy. I've been to Will's cabin in Iowa and though he might not have the HWIII pedigree [excepting Uncle Huey Tweedy - shout out!] he's just as real if not realer than HWIII.

Already Disturbed: The most recent Jason Isbell record has been in constant rotation for me.


I was pleasantly surprised to find out he used to be in Drive By Truckers

Used To Be A Cop, my favorite DBT song

I was never a big McGraw fan. He lost me with Indian Outlaw.

Me neither, but still.. autotune?

The country stuff I like is mostly "alt-country". Southern Culture On The Skids, BR549, Trent Summar, John Hiatt, Steve Earle, Joe Ely, Mojo Nixon, Unknown Hinson, etc.

Hiatt, early Steve Earle, Yoakam, Junior Brown...good stuff. Gary Allan, too

Steve Earle's son Justin Townes is even better than Steve.   Freaking kid is an ungodly talented songwriter.

Yeah, forgot to mention some of those guys. Junior Brown is especially awesome. As a guitar player myself, I bow before the master.  :-)

Oh - and Webb Wilder is another fave of mine.

I'll have to check him out. Thanks for the tip.  :-)

I saw Justin Earle with old crow medicine show; that was a hell of a combo.

I've seen him half a dozen times over the years.  I'm glad that he's getting exposure now.   He is really good.

Okay, okay ... he's likable.  You've actually made me look up more of his stuff.  Damn.  And I've always hated country, too.  Well, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, HWii country, anyway
