I usually am not to much into this, but I just moved to the emptiest city on the planet in Jackson County, MS and they have like 3 radio stations. Consequently, my preferred hard rock/metal isnt one of them, r+b/hiphop/rap isnt here either, this leaves me with douchebagish American top 40 pop, or country.

Anyhow, this stuff isn't that bad. I'm looking to get some CD's or DL some stuff can anyone recommend some good bands or singers thanks?

I like Cash but his music is the only exception to the rule for me. I can't stand new country music. It all sounds the same. Just like hip hop/r&b.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 10:27:23 PM EST
There's a lot of good new country out there. You just have to filter through the cry baby bullshit like Tim Mcgraw, Brad Paisley and Kenny Chesney. Granted they have SOME good songs, but most of it is crying about how they still love their girlfriend that left them for a better man. Also, try to avoid the total pussified douchebags such as Keith Urban and Rascal Fats.

Good guess. I don't know dick about country music because I can't stand it. I gave it an honest try when my ex tried to get me into it. Aside from the basic 6 chord format, they also almost always have terrible lyrics. I turned on the radio and put it on a country station a few months ago when a few of my buddies and I were on the way back from a weekend trip, we started laughing about a song that was talking about a pickup truck. Then the next song mentioned a pickup truck. We laughed and turned it off. No doubt the next song was about a pickup truck. In the same way rappers talk about drugs, egos, and loose women, country singers talk about pickup trucks, small towns and drinking. Neither strike me as genius lyrics. There are no "Bob Dylan"s or "Aaron Weiss"s of country music. The closest would be Cash but they don't make any like him anymore

Sorry, can't stand most listed but I enjoy B Paisley and he's a FAR better musician then most in ANY music genre nowadays. His songs are usually anything BUT cry baby BS. And, unlike most, the guy has a damn good sense of humor.

If the "fishing song" is crybaby in any sense of the word I fail to see it.

The guy can play a guitar better far better then most and actually writes much of his own stuff and can do passable blues music.

New artist with old flavor - Jamie Johnson



Jamey Johnson - In Color


I guess I'm unusual in that I have as heavy a back-woods Alabama accent as one will ever hear yet, I generally despise "country" music. However,it's been a long-long time since a song reached me as deeply as that one does.

I'm not into music; I go for weeks at a time without listening to anything; there hasn't been a CD in the player in my truck for probably a year. Music doesn't really have an entertainment value for me but rather it's a genuine form of expression that when I recognize it, I'm moved by it. I really do appreciate music if and when it reaches me, but it rarely does.

I was with a friend and his brothers over memorial day weekend on a camping trip––camping out of our trucks. One of my friends brothers (Dennis) and I were talking about patriotism and especially our shared reverence for the greatest generation whose passing was noted as we spoke. The conversation spilled over to the other men around the campfire; we all remembered as any American worth his salt occasionally should. Dennis quietly got up and played that song from his truck's stereo and he sang along with it; nailing it. That's how In Color was introduced to me and I'll never forget it.

Country is like any other kind of music in that the best of it will never get played on the radio. Go find yourself some Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, J.B. Beverley and the Wayward Drifters, and the first two Hank Williams III albums.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 2:57:25 AM EST
as good as he is you prob wouldnt like hank sr., he is twangy and sings about stuff you dont want to hear (but once you get turned onto country you will enjoy him because of what he means to country) you might like some of Hank jr. though, and someone mentioned Hank III who i havent really heard but do know that he is even more rock and prob up your alley.

my sugestion would be to go for more southern rock such as skynyrd, charlie daniels band, and montgomery gentry. montgomery gentry is new but they are good and can rock it. (listen to Hillbilly Shoes, what do ya think about that, and hell yeah.) also you might like keith anderson (pickin wild flowers, and three chord country)

what turned me onto country was right after 9-11 they were the only ones singing about getting up and fighting, and toby keith is the first one i listened to w/ Courtesy The Red White and Blue. Keith is good, Trace adkins also has a good song about Arlington (very sobering)

if you need more suggestions on patriotic, southern rock, or anything else send me a message and i could just give you a bunch of artist names

also, look up Cpl. Joshua Belile online. The guy was/is a marine who caught alot of flack for a song he made up but its pretty good if you ask me (i downloaded it for free just off the internet)

Jason Boland & the Stragglers

Cory Morrow
Roger Creager
Randy Rogers
Eli Young Band
Aaron Watson
Ryan Adams
Adam Hood
Bart Crow
Brian Burns

Mark McKinney
Reckless Kelly
Wade Bowen
Walt Wilkins
Townes van Zandt

Notable exceptions to the Nashville rule are The Mavericks and Dierks Bentley.
