I've been digging on Emmylou Harris recently, specifically her 90s reinvention period. Wrecking Ball is a great album.

Possibly the best country music singer since Hank Williams - the New Order of country - beautifully understated



Dwight is one of those guys who got famous for being too "country", he got played a lot on CMT in the early '90s but his early stuff was more popular with the punk rock community than it was the country community - fun facts!

One of those songs that sounds like a rough script to a film in the same vein as Lawless or Winter's Bone.

That's a god tier song to boot, too bad it's the only decent thing John Anderson ever did. This one is one of those almost not-country country songs from the early '90s that I loved as a kid.

If we're gonna talk almost-not-country country, this is a favorite

Rodney Crowell; ignore the video

I'm not the biggest country music guy, but I do like me some Dwight.

I love how in the country music scene there is a general rule that if you are a big fan of an artist you call them by their first name - Hank, Dwight, Hank 3, Merle, Waylon, Willie, etc.

Fates Right Hand was kind of a grower. Took me a bit to get into his voice.



Dwight would fuckin kill this one if he covered it, but it's pretty awesome as it is. Dat steel. Also love the minor-major thing going on, that main melody man.

The RS List introduced me to Merle Haggard and Steve Earle. Man, this is the kind of country I truly like.
