Help me discover more country music.

I've always been a fan of alt-country stuff like Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown, Uncle Telupo, Neko Case, Gram Parsons, and Son Volt, but never ventured much into honest to god country.

Here's what I know I like: Dwight Yoakam, Loretta Lynn, Garth Brooks, Buck Owens, Gram Parsons (I felt like I had to include him in both), and Hank Williams. What other artists in this vein would ya'll recommend? Please no corporate Nashville pop country.

I'm a huge fan of George Jones, Willie Nelson, and Charly Pride, not to mention some of the old close-harmony singers, like the Louvin Brothers.

This would be a good time for you to make use of some filesharing, to get your bearings and see what you like.

One could do much worse than listening to Swinging Doors on KEXP.

Dale Watson is about the countriest motherfucker alive. By all means, see him perform live before you die. He's a consumate showman and he's got a seriously crackerjack band behind him.

posted by kimdog at 7:05 PM on June 22, 2007

Oooh, I've been waiting forever for someone to ask this question.

Alt-Country you may already know and/or love:

Gob Iron (Jay Farrar side project)


Blue Mountain

Drive-By Truckers (more rock than country, but great anyway)

Lucero (ditto, but I love this band -- if Social Distortion was from Tennessee, they'd sound like Lucero)

Hank Williams III (live he kicks ass, recordings are meh)

Alejandro Escovedo

Wayne "The Train" Hancock (particularly "Thunderstorms and Neon Signs")

Robbie Fulks ("Georgia Hard" and "Let's Kill Saturday Night")

Green On Red

Jason and the Scorchers (for 80s cowpunk roots, and for playing lead guitar with lit cigarettes crammed in one's nostrils)

The Mekons, and their myriad incarnations, have made some chillingly good faux (?) country

"Real" Country:

Guy Clarke ("Dublin Blues")

Townes Van Zandt (because "Pancho and Lefty" is the single greatest songwriting achievement in the history of popular music -- I have an iTunes playlist that is nothing but covers of this song)

Jimmie Dale Gilmore

The Flatlanders, for that matter

Willie Fucking Nelson

Merle Fucking Haggard

Patsy Cline

Other thoughts:

For background, get "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Not the second one, the first one, from the 70s. Also check out Doc Watson, an American treasure who is a walking encyclopedia of folk music and the best damn flatpicker alive. Also, hear the history of Texas swing with some Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and their hippie imitators, Asleep At The Wheel.

And when you've digested all that, dig some Charlie Feathers and Hazel Adkins for some redneck rockabilly that makes modern punks blush.

I thought Garth Brooks was the very height of pop country. He really sticks out in that list.

The recommendations you've gotten are all pretty good but many of these artists have some very uneven catalogs. Go to Amazon or some other resource to get an idea of which albums to look at.

And I'm gonna go against the grain here and say that live at San Quentin/Folsom Prison is one of the most over rated live albums out, and I love Johnny Cash. Cocaine Blues is a great song and they do a stand out job on Wanted Man, but the rest of the album is unremarkable. The last albums he did are all very strong, and so is the boxed set with material that didn't get used. He does an incredible cover of Pocahontas by Neil Young.

A couple of other specific albums that come to mind: Wrecking Ball by EmmyLoy Harris and the Rhino collection of Willie Nelson [one disk with a blue cover].

Oh, for some great straight-up country thinkin-and-drinkin' music, the best thing I've heard lately is Bradley Walker's Highway of Dreams.

This guy has the best pure country voice since the (buzzcut) young George Jones.

Dolly Parton has some awesome awesome music...her back catalog may be kind of intimidating so start out with The Essential Dolly Parton to see how good some of her older stuff is and then listen to some of her newer bluegrass stuff like Halos & Horns and Little Sparrow.

You may also like Patty Loveless (her bluegrass stuff and her last couple of mainstream country-ish albums are good.)

Check out the recent album by Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs - in particular there is a fantastic grassy version of Super Freak that is magnificent.

Vince Gill also has some tremendous music. He's got both new and old stuff that is excellent. (Maybe check out some samples on itunes or amazon.)

Jerry Douglas' solo stuff. (He is the dobro player in Union Station.)

I'm a fan of Ryan Adams and a BIG fan of Uncle Tupelo. I enjoy a lot of the stuff already mentioned, but I'm not especially familiar with it- except for Steve Earle who is fantastic. And, even though she isn't really country, I think from the things you've listed that you'd like Lucinda Williams.
posted by showbiz_liz at 7:59 PM on June 22, 2007

These guys are great. Put on a very fun concert. On Halloween this year performed as Motley Crue and probably played better than The Crue ever did live. Record Neil Diamond songs with Eddie Spaghetti of The Supersuckers.

I love these guys.

Also, the guy from the Two Dollar Pistols has a great country voice and the single greatest record album cover ever!

Second Old Crow Medicine Show.

In the interest of full disclosure, I should point out that I know these guys, but there's a really damn good band that's really damn big in the Ozarks that goes by the name of Big Smith, and they're one of the better country/bluegrass/hillbilly/southern rock bands you've never heard of. Early stuff is more pure hillbilly/bluegrass tip, but their later albums branch out more into electric instruments and southern rock. They've even got a 2-cd kids album (one disc for playtime, one disc for naptime), and it rules.

They and their extended family are even the subject of a recent documentary.

A great source of all kinds of country/alt country/americana music is Boot Liquor Radio, which plays everything from the 1930s and 40s traditional bluegrass through 60s Nashville cheese (a little) to modern Americana and country. I've ended up buying a lot of music from artists I've discovered on Boot Liquor.

posted by The Esteemed Doctor Bunsen Honeydew at 2:06 AM on June 23, 2007

I know from Texas/Oklahoma there is the Americana/Red Dirt/Texas Country, which is primarly what I listen to. Some of my favoriate artists are Roger Creager, Robert Earl Keen (my favoriate), Jason Boland, Wade Bowen, Jack Ingram, Jerry Jeff Walker (a classic), Cory Morrow, Lyle Lovett, Randy Rogers, Aaron Watson, Mark David Manders, and Chris Night.

For a more classic country selection there are the Gods of the Genre: Waylon, Willie, George Jones, Billy Joe Shaver. Dolly Parton, Kris Krissofferson, and Vern Gosden.

and Johnny Cash, the master of them all.

I've seen most of the Americana artists in concert multpile times when I lived in Texas, and I've only had the honor to see Willie, Waylong, and Billy Joe Shaver.

Seconding, etc.:
Emmylou Harris
William Elliot Whitmore
Dolly Parton
Gram Parsons I know this one's yours but...There's a tribute album out there called Return of the Grievous Angel that was curated by Dolly P. and features a gaggle of musicians worth hearing in their own right. Who knew Beck sang country so well??
heck, there's a ton of good suggestions above.

Here are some haent been mentioned quite yet:

Straight Country:
Hoyt Axton
Roscoe Holcomb
Trio (Emmylou, Dolly, and Linda Ronstadt)
Then Emmylou and Linda did one together called Western Wall, which is a couple of original tunes and a whole slew of songs penned by great country artists and great songwriters in general. One of my fave country rock albums, and not just because it was recorded in my hometown.

I heard Miranda Lambert on NPR this past week, and checked out her albums. She's an odd blend of country rock singing/songwriting and indie/alt production. I guess she'd be in your corporate pop country category, though.

Alt Country:
My Morning Jacket
The Broken Family Band Excellent swingin' music and raunchy lyrics to boot.
I really, really enjoyed Luther Wright & The Wrongs' Rebuilding the Wall. It's a song by song bluegrass cover of Pink Floyd's The Wall, of course.
Lambchop Yes, I know

You prolly ought to get a good Bill Monroe compilation to find out where all the music mentioned in this thread came from.

Bill Monroe's bluegrass music isn't a predecessor to country and the stuff mentioned in this thread, it's a parallel strand. Earlier stuff, from The Monroe Brothers, comes closer to being predecessor stuff.

Predecessors might include: Charlie Poole, Vernon Dalhart (as near as I can tell, the name that comes up the most often in Country Music Sources, Grayson and Whittier, Roy Acuff, Uncle Dave Macon.
posted by OmieWise at 7:13 AM on June 23, 2007

You could listen to Blue Yodel #9 (schedule), 9AM-Noon (EST) every saturday. It's country with a bias to bluegrass from the University of Kentucky's student radio station (in the heart of the bluegrass), and I listen having never been a fan of anything country before (disclaimer: I work at RFL).

Lyle Lovett (The Road to Ensenada)
Waylon Jennings (Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line)
Willie Nelson (Red Headed Stranger)
Guy Clark (Old No. 1)
Rodney Crowell (The Houston Kid)

Bunch of recent stuff -- Porter Hall Tennessee (I like that entire album, but try "Screwed Blue" and "Don't Bury Me"); in the bluegrassy vein, check out The Be Good Tanyas (song: "The Littlest Birds") and Alison Krauss; and in the "jugband" vein, I'll second Old Crow Medicine Show as amazing. Also, from the charts, check out David Allan Coe (song: "You Never Even Call Me By My Name"), John Michael Montgomery (song: "Sold, The Grundy County Auction Incident"). They may be Nashville pop but so was Johnny Cash at the time, correct me if I'm wrong here. While you're checking out David Allan Coe, don't miss the photos on his website, and his biography, which... how to describe it?... reads like a parody: "The term 'living legend' may be overused to the point of cliche, but in the case of David, it fits like a glove." "As well as being a singer, songwriter, guitarist, David is also a magician, deep sea treasure hunter and movie star."

Older -- no one's mentioned Roger Miller (song: "King of the Road"), and you can read up on the Bakersfield Sound to find others that influenced Merle Haggard and some he influenced, like Dwight Yoakam.

Reckless Kelly, can't recommend them highly enough.

And, I'd guess anyone who took the time to post here might also benefit from a look at Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, still a bit under the radar but so talented.

and, everyone that kimdog and smorange suggested. In fact, lots of the suggestions in the thread are good -- the way to filter will be to sample enough in order to settle on your particular flavor of country.

For what it's worth, if I had to take a drive-by at classifying your preferences, you seem to like artists influenced by Bakersfield and "No Depression," and tending more toward Western and rockabilly than bluegrass (incidentally, you'll probably also like the Lubbock genre a lot: Flatlanders, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, Buddy Holly). So, when you're checking out bands and reading about their influences, keep your eye out, and maybe familiarize yourself with those elements to see who will be your next favorite.

p.s. Return of the Grievous Angel was produced by Emmylou Harris, not Dolly Parton. Both women are amazing, to be sure, but very different artists and only one was Gram's muse and musical partner.

I'm not sure if any of these have already been mentioned:

  • Do you have The Flying Burrito Brothers? You love Gram Parsons (man oh man, as do I) but you don't mention them.
  • Porter Wagoner (totally awesome drinkin' oh-woe-is-me country music)
  • Freakwater (hard to classify; but they're really very good)
  • Kitty Wells! (the original honky tonk angel! So good.)
  • Tammy Wynette (she's a little tragic for me, but she's still really great).
  • Charline Arthur (Singer of the 50s, the original badass rockabilly chick)
  • Trio - this is an album with Dolly, Emmylou and Linda Rondstadt and it is so incredibly good.
  • John Hiatt (may be a little AAA singer/songwritery for your taste, but I like him)
  • Kasey Chambers (Again, a little AAA singer/songwritery, but she has an excellent voice, a modern country singer from New Zealand)
  • Patty Griffin (ok, now I'm in 100% singer/songwriter camp, but this woman is amazing).

    I think people have already mentioned, but please let me heartily re-recommend:

  • Lucinda Williams (my actual idol)
  • Steve Earle (he's been married like 6 times, I would totally marry him as his 7th)
  • Bobby Bare & Bobby Bare Jr.
  • Lyle Lovett
