    Hey everyone,

    I've been wanting to learn more about and get into listening to some country music for quite a while; do you know which bands-artists are worth listening to, that you could recommend?


    I've been wanting to listen to more of it basically since I saw the movie 'Crazy Heart' a couple years ago haha
    For some reason I had this (TV-induced?) cliche idea that the genre had some kind of ''uneducated-redneck-ish'' thing to it, but from having watched the movie, it seemed to me like the music/lyrics have some interesting depth to it..
    I've been curious to learn if there's truth to the negative stereotype, or maybe instead to the way the genre is portrayed in the movie?


    Thanks in advance for your opinions

    Not country, but related (bluegrass).

    I stumbled upon Dan Crary by accident and was so amazed and enthralled by his playing that I immediately bought the Lady's Fancy-album. I really enjoy his playing a lot. The title song absolutely blew me away, some of the chord and note choices in the intro actually remind me of Bathory for some reason (I think the intro is his composition even though the actual song is traditional)...



    Forgive me if it's not what you're looking for! :lol:

    That's ok, thanks for the suggestion! That's a bit too chirpy in comparison I guess, though always nice to hear someone with guitar chops (not so much with a comb though, apparently)

    I thought something similar when looking at the movie; for some odd reason, that character seemed more metal/rock/whatever to me than lots of the newer stuff out there representing the genre nowadays haha

    Just imo, of course

    Little Big Town are really good, some of the stuff reminds me of Fleetwood Mac.
    Crazy good vocal harmonies.

    For older staff it's hard to go past Johnny Cash

    Ryan goddamn Adams. I can't stand virtually any modern country but Ryan Adams is freakishly talented and prolific.

    I struggle with full on country, but can tolerate the influence that comes through on Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.

    I also struggle with modern full on "pop" country. The closest thing I can recommend are Gillian Welch (more Americana/ folky i'd say), Iron & Wine and Lucette. Been bumping all three of them a ton lately. Gillian just pulls on my damn heart strings. And her guitar player is in-fucking-credible.
