    Me 2!!!! Most of the time they do ok. A bit repetitive for such a broad venue but ok for public radio.

    The real work of men was hunting meat. The invention of agriculture was a giant step in the wrong direction, leading to serfdom, cities, and empire. From a race of hunters, artists, warriors, and tamers of horses, we degraded ourselves to what we are now: clerks, functionaries, laborers, entertainers, processors of information. - Edward Abbey

    Yes and no. Grew up hearing my dad blasting his music as prepared for work most mornings. I love the early stuff of his. 1st album, Diamonds in the Rough, Sweet Revenge, Bruised Orange...

    There is a modern country movement coming out of east Texas that I love. See Blackberry Smoke, Whiskey Myers, The Steel Woods, Brent Cobb, Tyler Childers. Those should lead you on the right path.

    Didnt sift through all the pages in this thread so forgive me if its already been said. If you like country, and I mean the good stuff...you MUST find the time to get out to Nashville TN. I would say minimum of 4 days and that would be rushing it...6-7 days would be better. Aside from the Country Music Hall of Fame, you got the Ryman Auditorium, The Johnny Cash Museum, Patsy Cline Museum, and the list goes on and on. Not to mention all the honky tonks up and down Broadway. Every bar you go to will have live music all day every day. Heck there was live music in the lobby of the hotel at breakfast!! Definitely spend some time at Tootsies Orchid Lounge. 3 or 4 floors with a different band/musician on each level. There are also quite a few good BBQ joints to try. They have their own style in Nashville, a cross between KC/Memphis/NC I enjoyed it all

    The only mainstream artist I still really like is Eric Church. But if I'm not listening to old stuff (both Hanks, Waylon, George Strait, Garth Brooks, etc etc) I like Cody Jinks and Cody Johnson pretty well. There's some others making music now that I really like, but usually you have to dig a little.
