Billy Currington has quite a following across the U.S.. I was wondering if anybody had any similar artists suggestions who carry the same "classic country" and sort of laidback style? I have covered the obvious bases of Johnny Cash, Waylan Jennings, and Willie Nelson etc.

Recently I've started to become obsessed with this type of music. This is weird, since even six months ago, if someone told me that I should check this stuff out, I would have shown them the whites of my eyes without thinking. I guess people change... I've been voraciously gobbling up music like Old Crow Medicine Show and Gillian Welch, and also stuff by Townes Van Zandt and Doc Watson. I love the organic and honest sound of the music, some songs are melancholic and some have charm, it's all good!

I would greatly appreciate some more recommendations to satiate my hunger!

Two Gallants. Maybe. Townes Van Zandt is amazing.

Townes Van Zandt and Gillian Welch are fantastic, so you're off to a good start.

Here are a few of my personal favourites you might wanna look out for if you haven't got them already;

The Byrds - Sweetheart Of the Rodeo
Flying Burrito Brothers - The Gilded Palace Of Sin
Lucinda Williams - West
Emmylou Harris - Elite Hotel
Gene Clark - White Light
Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen - Bakersfield Bound
Gram Parsons - Grievous Angel
Manassas - Manassas

^ The top 3 being albums I'd recommend to absolutely anyone, regardless of their standing on this kinda music.
