    Amanda Ann Platt, with her band The Honeycutters. Classic songwriting.

    I've stopped watching all the country music awards shows because the insist on bringing on pop acts to mix in.

    I still think there's more than a ray of hope, for Nashville.

    People keep pouring in, lots of folks with crazy skill sets, it is a growing community with a rapidly growing tax base and I just feel like, somehow the people with better music in them will shove all the dreck out of the way. The result is probably not going to be what we remember as Country from the 50s and 60s, but it will, I think, be much better than the Nashville Pop Schlock that's being given priority right now.

    She's the one.
    She's no one trick pony, either!

    Johnny Cash At San Quentin still doesn't suck in 2018.

    I've found some amazing music in this thread and want to thank everyone. It's only fair that I contribute as well. I first read about Sasha McVeigh in a small snippet in Guitarist, a UK guitar magazine that I've subscribed to since I picked it up at a newsstand in Stirling, Scotland. She's a UK country artist. I kid you not. She's good and she's grown on me.

    https://www.sashamcveighmusic.com/

    This link will get you to her web site where you can click on a single she released. There's more great material on her album and some good acoustic music from before the album on YouTube.

    Here's more.





    I hope you enjoy it.

    Lots of good stuff here, plus a bunch I’ve never heard of. Guess I know what I’ll be doing today.
