I love country music.

There, I said it. That goes for all types of country! From old time country and western to bluegrass to the new stuff! Hell, especially the new stuff!! I just love it all, it's in my blood. I'm just a sucker for a slide guitar, a fiddle, and a song about a broken heart.
It's the music that just never goes out of style.

So do you love Hank jr? Does Patsy's voice make you cry? Do you think Kenny Chesney is flat out awesome? Do you like to party to Big & Rich?

Country lovers only--haters need not apply!!!

I'm not partial to much of the current Country stuff; I don't mean to knock it--it's just a little too "pop" for me. As David Allan Coe said, the "perfect country song" requires references to "momma, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or gettin' drunk." But that's just me-- and there's no accounting for taste! Maybe it's because I'm getting older and my tastes are frozen in the past. I do enjoy some of the older stuff: Hank Sr., Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and others.

I am even more partial to Bluegrass, both old and progressive--especially the Del McCoury Band, Seldom Scene (the John Duffey era), Country Gentlemen, J.D. Crowe & the New South, Alison Kraus & Union Station.

And I like Western Swing, from Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys to Asleep at the Wheel. The occasional country/western swing influence is one thing I miss from Dickey--and I am most definitely NOT trying to turn this into a Dickey thread!--you can hear that twin-fiddle influence on his and Duane's lines in Blue Sky.

Hey, sounds good. There are so many forms of country music and I'm glad to meet fans of all the varieties. It's all good to me, even that pop/country stuff.

Del and the boys' new album "Family Circle" is awesome as they come off a big year. J.D. Crowe, the second most important living banjo player next to Earl Scruggs, is still out there getting it done and is still in Nicholasville, KY. As for the Country Gentleman, it is hard to believe that Charlie Waller has been dead for five years now, but I do talk with Bill Yates, Doyle Lawson, Jerry Douglas and other CG alumnus on occasion. All speak highly of Charlie. As for Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, last week they went back into the studio for the second phase of recording their upcoming new album after taking a couple years off, and the word is it will be awesome. Breaks can be a good thing for a band, and each member of AKUS has been off doing their own interesting musical things anyway- Alison with Robert Plant, Barry Bales and Dan Tyminski in the award-winning Dan Tyminski Band, who have an excellent debut album, Larry Atamanuik has been gigging with Alison Brown, Ron Block has been playing and producing albums like Sierra Hull's excellent latest effort called "Secrets," Jerry Douglas has been touring relentlessly and recorded "Glide" with his own outfit and has showed up on other projects ranging from Elvis Costello to Edgar Meyers and Sam Bush to his current awesome Christmas album, "Jerry Christmas," and so on. Now, it all falls back to AKUS in 2010 so it should be a good year for them.

Thanks for the update Derek. Looking forward to having AKUS back on the road; I missed them.
As I understand Alison and Robert are also back in the studio [is this right?] will be interesting to see if this combo also hits the trail during 2010.
Still loving all the traditional and new grass out there - also folks, have a listen to Tom Russell's latest album; a work of genius IMO.

Yeah I like my country music, although I'm not a big fan of "Hot" country. I'm more Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson, Railroad Earth, David Allen Coe, Hank I, II and III, with some bluegrass thrown in there too.

Even though I live in England I have my very own "Renegade" country band called The Snakeoil Rattlers (www.snakeoilrattlers.co.uk).

One alumnus of J.D. Crowe and the New South who deserves individual mention--how could I not?-- is Tony Rice, a long-time favorite of mine. The last time I saw him was when he appeared with Alison Kraus and Union Station, at the Fox Theater in Atlanta (2 or 3 years ago?; I'd have to look at my ticket stub). Sadly, he was physically unable to sing anymore--I really miss his voice---but his guitar playing was as great as ever.

Can't say I like ALL forms of country music.

But I am a HUGE Johnny Cash fan ... old stuff and new stuff.

Probably everyone has heard his version of 'Hurt' ... sheesh, if just listening to it doesn't affect you, try watching the video.....

I love Johnny's voice near the end of his life. It was so genuine...

His take on Personal Jesus is very moving.

They are all so good, especially Farron Young.

But I do think Big & Rich have a place. I love their attitude, and I also love their song "Shuttin Detroit Down". They obviously mix a variety of genres but they also do a lot of straight forward real country. I love their honky tonk version of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long". Have you ever heard a song of theirs called "the 8th of November"?

Mike, when it comes to mainstream country music, I agree. However, when it comes to bluegrass, newgrass and new acoustic side of the ledger, slide players rule, especially on the squareneck. From Jerry Douglas, one of the best musicians in the world literally, to Rob Ickes to Randy Kohrs to Andy Hall, the musicianship is stone-cold amazing.

As for a modern artists that captures the sound of real damn country music, I would highly suggest the new project by singer, songwriter and guitarist James Hand out of West, Texas. His brand new album, his sophomore effort on Rounder Records, is called "Shadow On The Ground" and it is real deal old school honky tonk, swing and country music yet is all new with all original songs except for one. It is produced by a couple of top musicians you might recognize- fellow West Virginia native and now Texan Ray Benson of Asleep at The Wheel and Lloyd Maines. Three different pedal steel guitarist make an appareance on this CD including Eddie Rivers of Asleep At The Wheel, the excellent Cindy Cashdollar and, of course, Lloyd Maines.

In the liner notes, Kris Kristofferson says this about James Hand and his new album; " Soul music can't be imitated. The honesty, intensity, the beauty of it is instantly recognizable - easy to love and as real as rain. And as individual as snowflakes. I loved Hank Williams from the first time I heard him sing 'Lovesick Blues' on the Grand Ole Opry. For the same reason I love Lefty Frizzell and Merle Haggard, George Jones. You believe them. James Hand's singing makes me feel the same way. You believe him."



Real deal.

DH
