Alison Krauss and Union Station's "Daylight" album is really, really great. I also like the man who sings some of the songs - Dan something? Timmons? Maybe? He did the singing for George Clooney in "O Brother, Where Art Thou." Good stuff.

Dan Tyminski, he's a complete bad-ass.
He's the dude singing 'Man of Constant Sorrow' for those who are familiar with that song.

Funny thing is, even though I'm from the Southwest and grew up listening to country music ever since about 1988 (I was 13), when I first heard Led Zeppelin and Metallica in the span of a few months, I went for nearly 20 years without giving a flying ass about country.

Then a couple of years ago, I started listening to the old shit again because white rock has become so terrible (largely) and got totally inspired to dig in deeper.

I'm still not keen on the newer crowd of country music (newer to me is 1990-present) outside of a few exceptions.

I wish I knew more great alt-country, my knowledge of it is pretty limited but I generally like whatever I hear. Austin City Limits has had some great alt-country acts that I hadn't heard before.

In fact I first heard Iron and Wine on that show.

Gillian Welch

I like Gillian Welch's songs, but am not a big fan of her voice.

My early afternoon has been well spent on the music blogs.

I've gotten my grubby paws on The Flying Burrito Brothers first album: "The Guilded Palace of Sin & Burrito Deluxe" (1969)

I'm also eyeing Gram Parson's first solo album: "Grievous Angel" (1973)

This one has me pumped. It's Elvis Presley's band playing with Emmylou Harris & Gram Parsons singing.

Don't eye. Listen!
(It's his 2nd solo album BTW, released in 1974, his first one was GP in 1973)

Brass Buttons, Love Hurts, $1000 Wedding, In My Hour Of Darkness are amazing songs (as are the others on that record).
Last year I got The Complete Reprise Sessions boxset (which includes his two solo albums plus a disc of outtakes and alternative versions). Try to find it, you won't be disappointed.

Looks like I'm getting both. GP & Grievous Angel. At a great bit-rate.

Along with a beer.

Long live music blogs!

The only modern artist I enjoy is Dwight Yoakam.

The rest is complete shit.

Just got it. Larry plays on 8 of the 12.

And it's fantastic. It's midnite country. Perfect for late, long drives.

Also laid my ears on "Elite Hotel", which is just more of the same: good stuff.

Modern country and modern R&B are an absolute embarrassment. 2 original American art forms which have just gone right down the pooper.

Isn't it, though? I'm glad you like it. That was the album that made me think, "Huh. Maybe all country isn't awful."

I was working at a mall record shop, and that was one of the promo CDs we'd gotten to play in the store. No one wanted to play it, and I happily took it home.
