Recommend "country" music for those who think they hate country music...
The Loretta Lynn/Jack White thread got me thinking--most C&W one hears on the radio is utter dreck. However, it's a shame to just write off the genre completely, especially because it's an important part of American music in general--it reflects our history and who we are in a totally unique way.

So...those of us who know about some of the real gems out there, here's your chance to initiate your fellow DUers into what REAL country music is all about. Let's have those recommendations!

I'll start: anything by Lyle Lovett.

1. STOP! Don't go to Lyle!
Anything by the Dixie Chicks would be much better IMHO.

I like both the Dixie Chicks and Lyle Lovett.

I wish that the Dixie Chicks would play "Landslide" at Kerry's inaguration.

Shania Twain is not country. She sings some kind of pop with a bit of a country influence, but she ain't country! I'm a fan; I know from country, and she ain't it!

2. As far as classic country...the Man in Black.
"Johnny Cash at San Quentin" was my introduction to country music that I wasn't embarrassed to enjoy.
"At Folsom Prison" is another good one for the novice.

14. Here's a few ...
Dwight Yoakam

Martina McBride - I think I heard she was a Republican, but it doesn't show in her music.

Mary Chapin Carpenter - catchy melodies, clever lyrics, solid Democrat, and (I think) educated at Brown.

Diamond Rio - excellent harmonies and instrumentation, some beautiful songs and some hokey joke songs like "Bubba Hyde".

Dixie Chicks

Classic country artists like Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard have some great songs.

IMHO every musical genre has some redeeming artists and songs.

But the song is really about an abused woman who finally snaps and kills her abuser.

I can't listen to or "see" Sean Hannity for very long, so I wouldn't know.

16. "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" . . . Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (and friends)
great album that was re-released a couple of years back with some enhancements . . . there are also two followups, but they don't compare to the original . . .



http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00006368...

Editorial Reviews
Amazon.com

In an age when the old-timey soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou? sells 5 million copies, it's hard to imagine how revolutionary Will the Circle Be Unbroken seemed upon its release 30 years ago. The triple album (now rereleased as a two-CD set) paired many of Nashville's venerable country and bluegrass performers (Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Vassar Clements) with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, or as Acuff called them, "a bunch of long-haired West Coast boys." The idea seemed nearly as foreign as Martians setting down in Tennessee, but the Dirt Band were Colorado hippies steeped in the genre, so there was no disputing the authenticity of the music, or its earthy appeal. Aside from the sheer joy of the performances (listen to Jimmy Martin's "whoop" on "Sunny Side of the Mountain"), there's great fun in hearing Roy Acuff give the boys a lesson in doing a song right the first time (and using the word hell before launching into a religious number). And Mother Maybelle wafts through like a benevolent ghost, or at least a patron saint. One caveat: The boast of four previously unreleased tracks is balderdash, since three are really between-track conversations and rehearsals, and only "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" qualifies as a real song. But that's nitpicking. Buy it. Love it. Wallow in it. O brother, that's country music! --Alanna Nash

20. Skirt the rock border of country first
listening to 1950s rockabilly (Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Link Wray), 1960s country pop (Patsy Cline, Brenda Lee, Roy Orbison) and 1980s-1990s homages (Elvis Costello, kd lang). Then go back and listen to the originals like Hank Snow and Hank Williams. Bluegrass like Bill Munro. There's a lot of gold under the glossy shit that sells the most.

36. Steve Earle & The Dukes..."Shut Up And Die Like An Aviator"
...a pretty ragged 'n' right live album, released just before his drug bust and prison time, featuring a nice, sloppy version of the Rolling Stones hit "Dead Flowers" and the Sir Douglas Quintet's "She's About A Mover."

Other albums in his catalog are more "alt-country" and his first, "Guitar Town," is pretty much the same twangy territory walked on by Dwight Yoakam. He also did a bluegrass album with the Del McCoury band ("The Mountain")...he tries a little bit of everything.

I'm not sure if you'd like neotraditionalists then, but there are Alan Jackson, George Strait, and Patty Loveless.

There's other old-style like Patsy Cline, Hank Sr., Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson

Dixie Chicks

Steve Earle

Martina McBride
Kim Richey
Nickel Creek

Dwight Yoakam

50. The Flatlanders Album "Now Again" is really good.
From Amazon

About the Artist
The windy, expansive universe of West Texas around the town of Lubbock is distilled from just two elements: the land and the sky. They keep one another balanced in symmetrical counterpoint, with the horizon as a distant point of reference. In this most unadorned of landscapes, sunlight and shadow charge the Plains and the overarching sky with improbably transcendental power. This is the panorama that gave rise to the music of The Flatlanders.

Album Description
Now Again, by Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancockcollectively known as The Flatlandersmarks the first album-length collaboration between the trio of acclaimed Texas songwriters since their debut album three decades ago.

Now Again was ostensibly produced by Ely, but the album's tracks were a true collaborative effort. The songs (with the exception of U. Utah Phillips' "Going Away") were co-written by the trio, and most of them feature the rough-hewn vocal blend of all three men ("It was fun to learn we could still sing harmonies," laughs Ely). Besides the session musicians, two other original Flatlanders joined Ely, Gilmore and Hancock for cameos in the studio: musical saw player Steve Wesson and vocalist Tony Pearson

67. I'll Add Some Folks That Haven't Been Mentioned
Suzy Bogguss has a pristine voice; she should be a superstar, and I can't understand why she isn't.

I don't think I've seen Patty Loveless's name mentioned, either. GoodGodAlmighty, she's awesome!

I like Tanya Tucker, Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood and Lorrie Morgan, too.

From the men, try Trace Adkins, Billy Dean, Collin Raye, Sammy Kershaw, Bryan White and David Kersh.

If groups are more your thing, there's Asleep at the Wheel (they do the best Texas swing!), and Lonestar.
