Country Music isn't dead, it's just not allowed on the main stage anymore.

    I am fairly new here so I may well be posting a thread that has been done many times before.

    Meh... Let's see how my version of it goes.

    We'll start with the obvious ones.

    Jamey Johnson



    Cody Junks - (how about that? Former Thrash Metal player with more soul than all of Nashville)







    *Splittin my post.. too many videos*

    Courtney Patton - Not only can she sing, she writes her own songs?

    Country will always be around. Sure the main stage mightn’t be what you like, but it will fade and be replaced, and it will continue to be supported by those who like it.

    When I did my pilgrimage to Nashville last year, I went along to the bars and boot shops on broadway. I was expecting incredible musicianship - and I got that (though I was amazed that I have played with musicians just as good in Sydney). However what blew me away was the quality of songwriting. There’s great stuff always. You just need to dig.

    Who's on the main stage depends on where you are.

    I would say that that's better than the original which just sounded corny.

    This is played at a faster tempo and it makes what I considered to be Loretta Lynn's worse song pretty dang good.

    “Country” has become a big tent and maybe a bit amorphous or diluted.

    Real Country Music is still out there, but it's getting harder to find as the older ones have either long retired from performing or have passed on. Thankfully, there are still younger performers and bands that have picked up the torch and are keeping Country music alive. Trouble is, it's getting harder to find the real deal these days. You need to attend one of their four hour gigs and see if they're playing solid Country all night and then talk with them afterwards. In my neck of the woods there are plenty of Country bands.....new Country stuff and a few older, more traditional Country. It's just getting harder to find the "Real Deal" now days, since most of these local acts are sporting fake accents when they sing and talk on stage. Ugh!
    Just imagine if Dave Dudley or Marvin Rainwater would've tried to pull that one off!

    Campilongo and Benedetti are all over this record:



    this guy burns it up:



    Oh Canada:



    This gal has a million dollar voice:



    Lots more. Don't go to the main stage.

    Country grows wild, out where the road unravels.
