  • Someone once gave me a copy of the NME 'Tape With No Name' which is a pretty good collection of country material. My problem is that I have very little idea of the name of the artists and songs.
    I have tracked down Roseanne Cash 'This is the way to make a broken heart', and her dad Johnny Cash 'The night Hank Williams came to town', but I wish I could find the track listings and artists names...seriously some are pretty good.
    Have you checked out our own SE London hero:



  • 1 -I Walk The Line - Johnny Cash



    2- Crazy - Patsy Cline



    3- Galveston - Glen Campbell


  • From my youth (well, listening to my Dad's records)........

    El Paso - Marty Robbins
    Sunshine on My Shoulders - John Denver
    Canadian Pacific - George Hamitlon IV
    City of New Orleans - Arlo Guthrie

    and

    Glen Campbell


    In the present I love Caitlin Rose and she drifts into the alternative rock /indie/ 6 music scene quite easily.
  • Being a guitarist, I like Albert Lee and Brad Paisley, amongst others.

    I like the song Tempted - speaks to me, don't tell the wife!
  • so many, but here are just a few:

    Rhinestone Cowboy
    By the time I get to Phoenix
    A boy named Sue
    Lady
  • Glen Campbell (saw him live back in '92)

    Crystal Gayle

    Joe South

    and Jace Everett (sang the True Blood theme)
  • anything from the o brother where art thou sound track

  • Can't open them on my iPhone Salad but can see the top one is Caitlin Rose.

    Seen her a couple of times at the Windmill in Brixton, her band and her rock, good to see if you haven't.
  • far, far , far too many to mention, for anyone who really likes old country - this series is absolutely essential

    Try using shazam. That should give you all the details you require. (in case you don't know what it is, it's a app that records part of the song and finds the information for you).


    Anything by the man in black. Been a huge fan of his since my teens.
  • Check out Merle Haggard guys and girls, absolutely my favourite. I'm afraid the titles which started this thread are more pop than country. Amongst the girls, Riba McIntyre floats my boat.

    Gram Parson is my all time favourite with or without the Flying Burrito Bros

    Lucinda Williams is the best out there at the moment IMHO

  • me and bobby mcgee - kris kristofferson
    the devil came down to georgia - charlie daniels band
    duelling banjos
  • From the current crop, Lady Antebellum is a good band; the album Paper Airplane by Alison Krauss* & Union Station is an interesting mix of styles. Jace Everett's album Red Revelations is worth a listen. It includes the track Bad Things which is the opening music to the True Blood TV series.
    * She became well known - in this country anyway - for her collaboration with Robert Plant on Raising Sand

    Many years ago I saw John Denver live at Wembley and it was one of the best live performances I have seen. I also feel he and Kris Kristfferson are very underrated as songwriters.
  • Patsy Kline, Johnny Cash and Faron Young are favourites from the old school, from the newer artists, Dwight Yoakum, The O'Kanes, K D Laing. Also enjoy bluegrass - Flatt and Scruggs in particular.
  • Hank Williams .. his life makes people like Hendrix and Bonham look like choirboys .. also he was a super song writer, a real good 'ol boy from the backend of nowhere
  • Check out Merle Haggard guys and girls, absolutely my favourite. I'm afraid the titles which started this thread are more pop than country. Amongst the girls, Riba McIntyre floats my boat.
    Reba .. she is terrific .. WHAT a voice and whoever writes her songs deserves grammy after grammy ...

  • Well of the newer country stuff i'd have to say Jamey Johnson, Eric Church,Shooter Jennings and Jackson Taylor are the best im my opinion.
  • I think country music is a bit like having a fart. It's sort of enjoyable but more than one is a bit of a worry and it's not something you feel particularly comfortable with doing around other people.
  • Rotting on Remand - Billy Bragg
