Yeah, but when people talk **** about new country its more along the mainstream country pop lines than either of the artists you mention. I get really genre OCD when it comes to country. I love Nashville swing, Americana, the whole Texas singer/songwriter (aka the Austin scene), but if you called any of that country I'd probably be ready for a debate.

Furthermore, if you have anything constructive to say, I would love to discuss country music with you sometime.

Thats a great list btw.

Nickel Creek is great live. Their mandolin player is sick.

Drive by Truckers are a band that my friend swears by, I have 'The Dirty South' on a burnt copy and I really dig that. I thank my friend for enlightening me.

Hank Williams III came through San Diego not too long ago and i'm ashamed to say I didn't attend. His music is solid and I have heard his shows are quite the crowd pleaser.
While I'll admit you have experience on me in this particular genre, but this time last year I was very anti country and now I cannot get enough of it. It wasn't Johnny Cash or Hank Williams that began my love affair but bands like Elliott BROOD, Those Poor Bastards, Nickel Creek, and Corb Lund, which would suggest that these groups must to be doing something right to make someone do a complete 180 on their opinion of a genre of music. I apologize for calling you ignorant, however I believe that if you truly love a genre, you'll continue to dig for the good stuff. However I am not one to preach and if you're happy with the music you have, then the more power to you.

I sort of get what you're saying. Sort of.
But I also think the debate could be made that the pop-country that you hear on the radio isn't real country. It's as much put together overproduced garbage as O-town.

Are you in Austin? I'm moving there next year.

he's a good album artist, but see him live and you may think differently,.....that boys uses alot of pitch correction,....just sayin



satch,....you have a point about the genre,...however at the moment lines have been so blurred, and i'd dare not call what nashville is pumpin out right now 'country',...

country died along with steve earl's drug addiction and the birth of dwight's acting carrer

Oh I'll admit I had just heard RRB. I'm not like an affluent fan or anything. However, the only thing I heard from dude was live and I was really feeling it.

I'll be going to UT, so I'm gonna actually be in Austin. The military is paying me a stipend to live there though, so I'll be good.
