For those looking for good current country, I recommend any (and all) of the following: Nikki Lane, Angaleena Presley, Ward Davis, Colter Wall, Brandy Clark, Tyler Childers, Margo Price, Cale Tyson, Marlon Williams, Sturgill Simpson, Jamey Johnson, Whitey Morgan, Cody Jinks, Jason Isbell, Parker Millsap, Andrew Combs, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Sam Outlaw, and Lydia Loveless.

There is a lot of great artists working in the genre who don't get played on country radio...but who are far more legit than what gets played on country radio.

I also like Midland quite a bit.
I don’t know if it is just me but there is a whole world of music in the US I have no idea of its existence.
For a minute i thought it might be a list of US porn stars! Have heard a bit of Sturgill Simpson alright and its not bad, interesting take on In Bloom for one.

No, it's me as well.

I grew up on country because my parents listened to it. It was there way to reject the popular music of the time (like disco). I'd go to bed every night with the local country station on the radio. My music tastes branched out as I grew older and country became less important, but I still have a fondness for it. I just really dislike the bro-country that is so popular these days: generic songs churned out by professional songwriters. It's all suntanned girls, pickup trucks, Coca-Cola, and crap like that: parodies on country life.

Maybe us Yanks should start a thread where we explain US music to the rest of the world ;) .

WK wasn't meant in any way to be dismissive of the music just an observation that there is (and always has been) a whole host of music in the US that most of us in the UK would have no idea about and nor should we really.

No worries, my friend. I did not take the comment as dismissive, just interesting to think about how music that is so ingrained in our culture in the US is virtually unknown in other parts of the world.

Haha, yes. The Atlantic is a big ocean. It's like trying to explain Chas and Dave to anyone outside of England.

Gertcha!

I gotta laugh because country music seems to be the only thing that gets less respect than metal from 101.

101 likes a lot of metal songs, especially the nostalgic ones for him around 79/80. He just won't admit it.

Not knowing about genre or a band etc..is different to not liking something. Most of that conversation above meant nothing to me.

Im pretty sure there is a clear record of you being dismissive of country music. If Im wrong I sincerely apologize and dinner is on me if we are ever in the same city.

Also this album is fucking great, as should be expected with two great undergroundish American music icons collaborating.
