There is still a lot of "traditional" country music being made out there. Much of it by younger generations that are true to carrying on the roots of country music. But you will rarely ever (or never) hear them being given air time on any of the cookie cutter, commercial high volume demographic so called "country" stations. It just ain't gonna happen.

With todays technology the "good stuff" is out there and more available than it has ever been in history imo.
Other than a very few select radio stations, Youtube is one of the best places to find it.

... and it helps to $upport your favorite Independent record labels...

Here is a clip that relates to this very topic. It's the inside story on the "Murder on music Row" song. It's 12 minutes long but it's a good watch.
If you don't know who Larry Cordle is, I guarantee you know some of the songs he's written that have been covered by Major Artists. The whole video is worth the watch imo but Larry plays the song at the 3:00 mark.

Get on Youtube and type him in and listen to some of his stuff. He's is absolutely one of the best song writers/performers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

The days of Johnnie, and Vern, and Waylon and George are long, long gone, sadly.

I love to listen to them all on Country Classics on Sirius radio when driving the big rig.

But when I have the misfortune of catching a modern "country" tune I change the station quick. It is just reprocessed pop crap. Some of the modern "country" even sounds like rap.
Country music today is in the septic tank.

Lord forbid anything change in some folks lives.

We'd still be walking and looking for fire and the wheel too if things didn't change.

And by the end of November we'll be finished of and communist. So not all change is good.

Alabama killed country music.


The Mayans had it right. If youre going to predict the future, its best to aim far beyond your life expectancy, lest you wind up red-faced in a bunker overstocked with Spam and ammo.

Back in the day country was radio driven. The country artists didn't sell nearly as many records as other genres. It was gear to adults. In the 90's that began to change along with who the label's target audience were-younger demografics. Todays country market is much younger. That's who buys the music. And to market to that audience the music, lyrics, and subject matter changed, for the worst. Country has always borrowed other influences, such as Pop ( Kenny Roger, Dolly Parton). As other genres have borrow from country ( The Birds, Eagles). But today it is mostly has a Pop, Rock, even a Rap bent. The music is what "the kids" buy and listen to. I can recall when the urban cowboy thing came along. And was talking to a female co-worker about country music. She said she like it. I asked her,"do you like Merle Haggard"? She said," he's too country for me". Too country doesn't sell. Country market isn't an adult market, it's a teen market. The adult themes have vanished and been replaced by a high school kid in a stadium watching some act with with beat $15 hats singing "redneck anthems". You've heard them- The I'm so country offerings. The soul of songs like "Poncho and Lefty" are nowhere to be found.

Get a Pandora account and listen to what you want. You can select artists you like and ones similar. You can also delete artists you don't want to hear.

This chit shows some folks that age and can't handle change. Call it want you want if it makes you happy, but we grew up on Alabama and the concerts were great.

Still enjoy listening to whatever you want to call their music.

Such a nice weekend down here and folks still get their panties all wadded up and full of sand.

And before we get wound up, I like a LOT of different music, I"m not stuck on one type like my old grandpa was.....that was ridiculous.
