Does anyone out there like 'Alt Country'?

Recommended Posts

Prefer "old skool" authentic country George Jones, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash etc. I've also looked on it as proper "grown up" music that talks to working people. Great for the heartbroken.

Always a bit suspicious about any "rock" involvement.

I'll probably get shot in here if I mention 'The Rascal Flatts'.:thumbsup: More 'new' country than 'alt' country maybe?

Check out "Countrified" a country rock band from Sheffield. They play Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Crossin' Dixon, Johnny Cash, Lynard Skynard, CCR etc. Awesome live. I think they are currently doing acoustic shows around the area. If you get a chance go see them.

Is Whipoorwill an event organised by Wagonwheel Media or is it a seperate, promotional outfit? I went to a few good nights at The Shakespeare under that banner.

No that's somebody different. Been doing stuff mainly at The Grapes for the last 4 years.

Thanks. I've seen some great stuff at the grapes under your banner too. Didn't you put on Otis Gibbs?

 

I can recommend Doug Paisley to anyone who likes good music. I think a few people here may like him.
