What about Gov't Mule? It's certainly blues tinged, but the country influence is indisputable. Plus, they put on one hell of a show.

To add to my country rock classification; they jammed out for their sets, only to close with "The Ballad of Curtis Loew".

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung

I'll go out on a limb .. again! And suggest that Dwight Yoakam is the king of "Country Rock".

I agree, the genres are definitely blending together in modern music. I found this singer Ginnette Ward who blends together some awesome country, old school, blues, rock... it's awesome.

Jason Aldean is the biggest blow-hard in the music industry! Him, and Taylor Swift should have there own radio station, so all the other blow-hard's can listen to them and we wont have too.

Aldean buys all his songs from Brantley Gilbert the Songwriter, and Badass Performer!

Yeah Gov't Mule are a Southern Rock offshoot of The Alllman Brothers Band. Now as far as Jason Aldean goes, he only recorded two songs that Brantley Gilbert wrote/co-wrote, My Kind Of Party and Dirt Road Anthem.

There was a programme called The History of the Eagles on BBC 1 last night. It gave some interesting insights, particularly into the shoddy treatment of Leadon and Felder, although it glossed over the reasons for Joe Walsh's inclusion in the band. They also seemed a bit too grateful to Linda Rondstadt, and again the relationship was not made clear. From the documentary, Glenn Frey seems a bit strange.

The second and final part is on tonight at 10:30, looking at the split and subsequent reunion in the mid-nineties.

A contact told me that back in the 50s where he was from, if you wanted to hear rocknroll, you had to tune to a country station. A lot of "pioneers" of country started as rocknrollers like George Jones, Charlie Rich, Buck Owens (called Corky Jones back then, had a minor hit called "Rhythm & Booze" and was a member of Gene Vincent's Bluecaps around 1957).

Artists as Johnny Cash rode that line between country and rocknroll but never quite fitting into either genre. Carl Perkins was no less country than the rest of them but got classified as a rocknroller. Wanda Jackson, the Delmore Bros., Rose Maddox, Skeets McDonald, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Hasil Adkins, Jerry Reed, Marvin Rainwater and (my hero) Johnny Horton were all doing things that were definitely rocknroll and yet there is no doubt that they were all country artists.

So country-rock always seemed to me to be an artificial genre if there ever was one. Look at Junior Brown. Country as they come and here he is doing his own version of "Foxey Lady". Country-Rock is redundant term.

With that, I don't care for the state of country today. Taylor Swift does nothing for me. I'd rather listen to a Steve Earle than a Taylor Swift any day of the week. It seems that the rock has gone out of country and none of the so-called fans seem to notice. I don't mean to be too judgmental, though. But things look pretty moribund from where I stand.
