When I think of alt country I think of texas/reddirt music. Like Cross Canadian Ragweed, Reckless Kelly, Brandon Jenkins, Micky and the Motorcars, Shurman, Charlie Robison, etc. I even throw in Robert Earle Keen, Billy Joe Shaver and others into the genre. But I try not to call it "country" to people that dont like "country". Cause if they think that it is in anyway close to what is played on country radio they have already made up their mind that they dont like it, even with out listening to it. Silly people...lol
