Saw this chap last night in Hoxton, brilliant gig. He really got the crowd going and had a good band with him.

My entire country knowledge resumes to K-Rose radio station from GTA San Andreas. I know them all, but those are the only ones I know.

Some country music is OK. A lot of it is soft rock really. Then you get some nice eye candy like Shania as well.

That quarter past one song creepy as hell. Whenever I hear it, it kind of usually is quarter past one. Even when it randomly comes on my mp3 player and I dont know it's there.

Listen to some live James Taylor albums. There's a few on Spotify I've been loving lately, although granted some of his songs aren't exclusively country, there's a lot of variety.

Shoot The Jukebox did a really good monthly mixtape of country for a while, sadly it appears to have stopped now, but you can still download their old mixtapes for free:

15 replies and no mention of the lovesick blues boy?



(though Fred Rose wrote it)

If you're looking for more modern stuff, just be sure to stay clear of that gay shit that's been topping US pop-charts for the past 20 or so years. How about some Whiskeytown/Ryan Adams..?

Elliot has the Hank Williams covered. I'll try to get some of the rest. No Johnny Cash, but only because he needs no introduction.



(one of my favourites when I was about 4)






(That's the only thing I can play on a guitar)

Take out the O, the R and the Y and that's what you're left with.

Although I do enjoy that Lady Antebellum song, "it's quarter past one o'clock and I'm drunk" or whatever it is...

It's not strictly country.....more Americana but I would highly receommend Willis Alan Ramsey. Try get your hands on his CD. It was ground breaking and has earned him the title of God Father of Americana. It's from the 70's

Random bump and had to search for a relative thread but just got into Brad Paisley, his guitar work is something else.

This tune is currently doing loops in my head

Paisley is an elite guitarist that doesn't get his dues because he's straight up country, but he shreds with the best.

This is just an incredibly well-crafted song. The arrangement, the melody, the chorus and the hook are super-infectious. Also, the song isn't what you think it is going in, and the lyrics are great!

"People say I've got a drinkin' problem, but I ain't got a problem drinkin' at all".
