i know that this is the jazz and blues forum, but i thought maybe this is the best forum to ask for help. I love country music, but i come from europ and I really want to start listening to it. Sounds like a newbie question, but can somebody here point me out to some nice and well known country artsits/bands?

thanks anyways :]

Johnny Cash, Kris Kristopherson, and Willie Nelson. Go to the basics!

His post was pretty damn useless.

Check out The Mississippi Sheiks, my personal favourite is Sittin On Top Of The World.

Try Leadbelly, Mr David Viner http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=0tE4m6JdXCY , and Johnny Cash.

David Viner is one of my favourite singers.

Enjoy.

Willie Nelson's my favorite. Also try Waylon Jennings. There are several rock bands that play a lot of country tunes, too like Elvis, Skynyrd, and the Rolling Stones.

Bob is Rock, although late 60's bob was very country

Kieth Urban. Brad Paisley.

You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town

Look at the Chet Atkins long list of songs. You won't find any better. Some are ---Waiting For Susie B., A Little Mark Musik, A Taste Of Honey, Country Gentleman, Streets Of Loredo, Sweet Alla Lee, Jam Man. A good selection is in the Hal Leonard book called Chet Atkins Almost Alone. The number is HL00690158.
