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?
Gibson LP Studio x2 (1x Worn Brown Satin, 1x Swamp Ash)
MXR M132 Super Comp > EHX Worm > TC Electronic Polytune > MXR Custom Badass 78 > EXH Glove > EHX East River Drive > Zoom G3

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 make non-traditional electronic music, emphasizing melody and the use of older, video-game inspired sounds. New EP on the way.

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
