    Looking for quality backing tracks to practice over. Specifically things like train beats, country shuffles, slow ballads and Waylon style beats. Would be nice to have it be able to change progressions and keys and tempos as well.

    ^^ What He said !

    best tool ever to create on the fly backing tracks, the new version has real band included, you can hook up vst plugins if you want for better sounds.

    Great software

    iReal Pro on phone or tablet. I found a package of 18-20 country/bluegrass backing tracks. Easy to change tempo/keys

    I'll echo what others have suggested....BIAB.
    I've had it for about 3 years and started with the basic version which was a gift from a music buddy.
    Following year I upgraded to the UltraPlusPak which goes on sale during end of year holidays for about 170$.
    It's a very good program....take the time to learn it and I think you'll be impressed with it's capabilities....I sure was.
    I had (5) songs unfinished for a couple of years which were really nagging me.
    BIAB got them OFF of my plate!

    Should you be interested they are on my S/C page so you can get an idea.

    That's my recommendation.

    I have had some good luck just googling for country style backing tracks. I even found a guy who made a great backing of "Jerry's Breakdown." All I did was internet search "Jerry's Breakdown Backing Track", and bam! It was right there waiting for me

    BIAB. You can start with a more basic package if you are unsure and upgrade later. I use UltraPakPlus. I’ve used BIAB tracks for gigs solo or with a bass player for the last 6 years. And a totally not boring way to practice. I have it render tracks to wav files that I play back from an iPad.
