    Just listened to the Buck Owens episode. Very interesting and lots of Telecaster! Coming from the UK, I've got very little appreciation of the context of most country music. I love these stories for filling in big parts of that picture. Don Rich next up!

    Surprised there's only one thread and one post about this podcast. My wife loves good podcasts and there are so few good music podcasts, so I recommended this one and W.B. Walker's Old Soul Radio Show. Haven't had much time to listen them, but I just finished the Spade Cooley story. That was a harsh, harsh story. Tyler does a great job with his research, and the more you listen, the better he gets. Now on to Bobbie Gentry's story.

    if you don't crush the rhinestones well enough it'll be hell on your nose.

    Cocaine and rhinestones, hmmmm.
    Two equally worthless things.
    DAC, discuss?

    No Bill, it's Dave's boy recounting, with research, stories from the country music genre. He talked about Ernest Tubb, Loretta's song "The Pill" and how it was banned from radio, he talked about Bobbie Gentry and the mystery surrounding her, the evil of Spade Cooley, a couple segments on Harper Valley P.T.A., the life and times of the Louvin Brothers. It's really quite interesting.

    if you have NOT listened to this and you dig old country music... you are in for a real treat. My son and I talked for over an hour about Ralph Mooney the other night... it is so gratifying to know how interested he is and how happy he is that he grew up with these names and this music and the podcasts are so informational and entertaining.... I hope the guy keeps going and going...

    "Cocaine And Rhinestones" Band name alert for a country-rock or outlaw country band.

    That s a cool podcast, but i wish Taylor would speak a little bit faster. I like reading the transcriptions better than hearing the whole thing.

    Another good thing about it is that he mentions his sources, what books were used and so on.

    Look in the lower left hand corner as you’re playing the podcast . It should say 1X. If you tap that again it’ll say 1 1/2x and the pitch of his voice will go up but he will talk faster. Tap it again and it’s chipmunk time at 2X. Tap it One more time to see what he would sound like really really drunk. That’s 1/2X.

    Btw - it’s a really great podcast.

    Perfect companion to Mike Judge’s tales from the tour bus.

    Tyler does another podcast called Your Favorite Band Sucks that I find funny, but then again I have a good sense of humor...

    I did it ! yesterday i finished the last episode of season 1 ... I'm going for the second round :)

    this is one of the best podcasts I've ever heard, i also like how it is narrated, i wish more of my friends where interested in this, some time ago i made a thread " what is country music ? " well this podcast really gave me a deep view inside how things were back then.

    Can't wait for second season hopefully he's gonna cover Waylon Jennings & Johnny Cash :)

    and .. woot woot ! to ya'all, if ya know what i mean ... ;)

    I'm going to politely disagree - I quite enjoy hearing the obscure, behind-the-scenes stuff moreso than the big names. Waylon and Johnny are two of my most revered artists of all time, but as a result, I've read a lot of literature and history on the both of 'em. I personally don't feel like I'd like C&R to cover them just yet...maybe in season 3 or 4.

    But, good news! According to Twitter, they're shooting for a January launch of season 2!

    I have recently relistened to season 1. It might get a rerelisten as I wait for season 2.

    I am personally inviting ALL OF YOU to give C&R a listen.
