This guy knows what he is talking about, you would be well advised to follow up on this recommendation.

Thanks There are a few modern country bands I like (mainly alternative country), but they're few and far between.

Due in part to the seeming belief that country died with Johnny Cash, I offer five of my current favourite Folk/country performers/bands:

Corb Lund (and the Hurtin Albertans)
Elliott BROOD
Luther Wright & the Wrongs
Corey Smith
Pine Box Serenade


All current acts, and all very powerful country that rises well above the greasy scum called CMT.

I don't know as much about country as I would like to, but I agree that most (not all) popular country isen't worth listening to.

Here's my top 5:

Alison Krauss and Union Station
Nickle Creek
The Wailin' Jenny's
Eliza Gilkyson
Gillian Welch

And I know this more than five, but I have to add the Be Good Tanyas.

I also recently checked out the above mentioned Luther Wright and the Wrongs, they're very good.

Cross Canadian Ragweed sounds very interesting.

Definitely agree on Nickel Creek. I love the paired vocals, and stunning string work.

Luther Wright & the Wrongs pretty earned instant cult status, for having the balls to remake Pink Floyds the Wall album. More so, doing it VERY well, and making it sound both familiar and unique at the same time. Rebuild the Wall is an amazing album, but I prefer their original stuff from Guitar Pickin Martyrs.
