    If they did, maybe the format wouldn't be dying.

    Spotify, Pandora and YouTube is where I get my music these days.

    Great song.

    Willie's Roadhouse and Outlaw Country on Sirius XM. The modern pop country is on a different station.

    I'm a metalhead from the mid-80s, but I grew up on country like this. The kind of stuff my dad would dig. He's still alive, maybe I'll send it to him. Well, to my mom at least, he "hates computers".

    Any more songs/artists like this?

    I'd suggest you listen to this station, CKUA. It's local to me (funded similarly to PBS).
    There is show called Wide Cut Country, Saturday mornings at 10am Mountain Time (12pm Eastern). Pretty sure they play Rodney. Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, John Prine, etc.

    I think we need to come to terms with the fact that "Country Radio" is not. Is not Country.

    This "stuff" is Nashville Pop. That's all it is. A mashup of a bunch of beats they believe kids and alcoholic party goers will like.

    I'm mighty fond of the band Willie Sugarcapps which features sometime Rodney Crowell collaborator Will Kimbrough. My kind of Country.

    This guy doesn't have a bad song in his very extensive catalog.

    I love the funky down home goofiness of Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band.

    Terms, titles and definitions ... there are two groups that can define terms, like the names of genres. There's the artist or the artist's representative, and there is the expert: the scholar, the preservationist, the musicologist. Everything else is a sales pitch or a subjective opinion. On the other hand ...

    I see players doing Zydeco music, but they aren't singing in French or using traditional instruments, like accordions and washboards. I see players doing Cajun music ... without diatonic accordions, singing in English, no fiddles ... what are they playing?

    Blues ... Stevie Ray wasn't a Blues artist, or was he? Didn't sound like it to me. When did Rock n Roll become just Rock?

    If enough people use a definition, it becomes the definition. Urban Zydeco, Modern Cajun, Blues-Rock. I don't see any point in calling Charlie Patton and Robert Cray both Blues ... I think Robert Cray is primarily an R&B artist, like Johnnie Taylor. But my opinion doesn't change anything, too many people think that's Blues ... so, it is.
