Smile Why Do you Like Country?

I've occasionally flirted with country. When I have, it's been for Dwight Yoakum, Travis Tritt, and Mary Chapin Carpenter







Also ran:



And, last but not least: a throwback sound, but with new mixed in (he's wonderful whether or not you like country):

New Dwight (well, from 2012 anyway) is really good if you haven't heard any of it yet.

Here's a small example. This is a great song in itself, but the lap steel that comes in (played by Brian Whelan), especially towards the end, cuts right to my soul:

If you're a Dwight fan like I am, I highly recommend the entire album. He does most of the guitar work on it, which is a bit out of the norm. Pete Anderson (his old guitar player) was another reason I started listening to his stuff, but this album is more singer/songwriter oriented.

Thanks Plankton-
For recognizing and addressing me (and not in a negative way, as I've seen done to other members).

Not so much into country or singer/songwriter biz, as usually too angst-ridden or lovelorn for me. (And, I know Gary Allen's Smoke Rings' is in keeping with that). I guess I posted here, mainly b/c anywhere else I'm finding lots metal-based or obscure 80s punk, and I came to mb as another means of finding new (or new to me) music.

Thanks again.

I'm originally from the Canadian prairies, and country is pretty pretty ingrained in life there. So, even though I didn't listen to much growing up I had an appreciation for it and eventually got into it. As I've moved around abroad it also carries a measure of homesick nostalgia (which is a damned fitting role for country to play). But, other than that fluffy ****, It's an amazing story-telling music which is often overlooked.

One of the coolest things I've come across in music is that if you pay attention to the lyrics, these three tracks are all telling the same story either from different perspectives or extending it from Jolene. Epic ****.
