Eric Church's new album is pretty good. It's a bit more southern rock to me, but got its radio country songs in there as well.

"Devil, Devil" is an amazing song, country or not

I'm a big fan of some country too. My only problem with it is there are way too many depressing ballads, I'm all about the up-tempo stuff.

I'm well into Montgomery Gentry, and have a couple of Toby Keith albums that are awesome, but most of the rest of my country collection hardly gets listened to because they're too depressing!

Any recommendations for other artists that focus on the up-tempo stuff?

Depends if you like the new modern country stuff or not. I dont mind the mainstream country artists because the music still sounds good (the lyrics are what get on my nerves at times). Can't go wrong with Brad Paisley for great songwriting and guitar playing. And then there's:

Keith Urban
Brooks and Dunn
Gary Allan
Shooter Jennings
Miranda Lambert
Sunny Sweeney
Little Big Town
Luke Bryan
Josh Turner
Kacey Musgraves
Dierks Bentley (his Up on the Ridge album is very bluegrassy).

The Band Perry, Eden Edge, and Carrie Underwood might be more pop than country, but they're stil enjoyable

I'm interested in getting to know more independent/underground country artists...or "Progressive Country" is there's such a thing....I guess that would be closer to certain kinds of jam music....I like Brad Paisley. Older 90's country is very nostalgic for me as well. I'll be checking out The Little Willies (odd statement out of context)

i saw montgomery gentry at a free concert when i was really drunk and i had a pretty good time at their show, but im not much of a country person

up tempo bluegrass "chickin pickin" banjo music is pretty cool though

I've always liked country music because you can strip the songs down to a voice and an acoustic guitar and they still sound great.

Some personal favorites:

Lefty Frizzell
Hank Snow
Gram Parsons
Emmylou Harris
Dwight Yoakum

In a more alternative way, I've always thought "Acuff-Rose" by Uncle Tupelo and "Windfall" by Son Volt are two great country songs.

What are your thoughts, countrygirl1234? I'd love to hear them!

Best, Jordan

Jimmie Rodgers is probably my favorite country. I'm really not a fan of the Nashvile sound, its too fake for me. I guess I like country folk music.

This is the country I like -

Jimmie Rodgers
The Carter Family
The Delmore Brother
Merle Travis
Doc Watson
Johnny Cash
Roger Miller
Old Crow Medicine Show
Ramblin Jack Elliott
Roscoe Holcomb

I'd love to find some more, but don't have time to trawl and am so sick of listening to boring ass songs. I like country thats simple, comes from the heart you know.. Just a man and his guitar. Any recommendations would be warmly received!
