@ Gavin B and Moshe : some very interesting behind-the-scenes information; it sounds like you two could get together and write the definitive work on The Byrds. ( At first I thought you were talking about a track on my favourite Byrds album, Untitled, but of course that one is Truck Stop Girl .)

To move things in a slightly different direction, this guy sounds like country rock to me, although the Allmusic website says :

Quote:
In the strictest sense, Steve Earle isn`t a country artist; he`s a roots rocker.....he cultivated a dedicated cult following, drawing from both country and rock audiences.
Anyway, this is one of SE`s most country-sounding offerings:



TBH I prefer SE`s Mountain,the bluegrass album he made with the Del McCoury Band. Although it`s bluegrass-rock, I think it`s an album that`d appeal to anyone interested in this thread. Highly recommended.

Lisnaholic, Steve Earle certainly started out in country, I believe Guitar town was his debut. I'm not a huge fan, but I liked his early stuff
He is married to the very good country singer Alison Moorer, who is shelby Lynn's sister

The Byrds

I consider much of the Grateful dead's later work country rock
Here is a great example

YouTube - Grateful Dead - Truckin'

(although most of the above can be alt-country also)

My all time favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd song



What a glearing omission that they were left out.

The Eagles were from California.

And it's not semantics, Southern rock is more blues-based and boogie woogie than country.

The Eagles being from California doesn't take them out of the running for being Southern Rock.

I`m always happy to hear those Lynyrd Skynyrd classics - and Simple Man too, which was a new one for me. Thanks for posting them ,dj . But I`m sorry, I`d have to go with Il Duce on this one. There is a subtle difference between southern rock and country rock; if not, I would`ve clogged this thread up with the Allman Brothers by now!

Mind you, I`m no expert on genres, and even with Il Dulce`s explanation, I`m hard pressed to say what is what.
How about this, for instance ? Can anyone tell me what I`m listening to ?
