Merle Travis is famous as an early pioneer on the electric guitar and for popularizing a form of fingerpicking commonly referred to as Travis Picking. Not being a guitarist myself I do not really know the exact nuance of what he did do first but to my ears there were a handful of black dudes who did it first and Travis acknowledged his influences. In any case, he was a fantastic and very influential guitarist.

Loretta Lynn is one of my all-time favorite country music singers. She’s signature Kentucky. Immortalized on film by Sissy Spacek’s fantastic portrayal in Coal Miner’s Daughter LL has some of the best laughs in mainstream country as well as some of the sweetest ballads.

**** yes. She's kinda sketchy though about how so much of her **** is about how her husband being a fuck-around and then she comes out with an embarrassing true banger like "Fist City". Like, maybe you should have just divorced the guy and not come off like a Springer girl. "Fist City" is in fact one of the hottest country tunes ever though.

I got to see her live. She’s absolute royalty.

She sure hints at getting revenge on The Pill. And “Don’t Come a Drinkin

She’s fun not political but there’s some gritty feminism in there too.

And I don't know how much you've listened to Neko Case, but while she's beloved by many indie rock fans for being country for dweebs who don't listen to country her first album, The Virginian, is a completely different beast that's basically a love letter to 60s/70s country pop and most especially Loretta Lynn. It's also a top 10 pop album for me and is one of the catchiest albums ever made by wide margins.

Def. "The Pill" sounds as assuredly feminist as I'd ever hear from country even today. She sounds like a woman trying to help the younger generation on that song and not at all like she did on earlier songs.

I’ve been aware of her as a big name in the Americana movement for a long time. I listened to this record today and wasn’t really feeling it. It’s not often I don’t like something you rec so strongly. I’ll give it another listen later if you remind me. Maybe it’s me. Honestly, she’s never really grabbed my attention.

I didn't like Lil Yachty on the first try and you didn't like this. I think it's the exact same scenario but replace poppy rap with poppy country.

The importance of Bill Monroe cannot be overstated. The entire genre of bluegrass is credited to his band the Blue Grass Boys and he’s known as the Father of Bluegrass. Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs were members of the band and one classic lineup included Monroe on mandolin, Flatt on guitar, and Scruggs on banjo. My take is each of the three deserve a solid third of the credit for developing the distinct bluegrass sound. It’s also worth understanding that old timey country music had been building into bluegrass for several years. In many ways bluegrass parallels punk rock in its explosive distinctive flavor and in precursors.

It's not considered "southern," but review my home state of Missouri.
