    I'm sure this thread has been done before but..

    I like to say "I listen to everything - except country" but I'd like to change that. I know theres some country music I would enjoy, I just dont know where to look.

    I enjoy hip hop, rock, death metal, grunge, and all the sub genres in between. Songs that speak about the world, history, the future, whatever. Just not fantasy or pop type stuff (dont get me wrong, there is a time and place for this as well) - but right now, I dont need feel good or dance music.

    Any ideas?

    Got you bro.

    Much like rock music, start with the classics

    They are famous for a reason.

    I love all of the highwaymen.
    Nelson
    Cash
    Christopherson
    Jennings

    90s guys like Straight and Brooks are amazing. I'll like some videos of my favourites from these artists later when I get home

    Excellent album just released this year -



    Very old school in it's influences

    Another good modern artist:



    Stuff like this is as good as any other folk music, it is singing about real, honest stuff, or as a youtube comment puts it not "singing about drinking cold beer out of a yeti cooler in the back of a brand new lifted 4x4 while calling himself a redneck. (Also known as pop garbage)."

    I'll post a couple. We can go from there. Country is just like Rock, there's different types.

    I’m a hardcore country traditionalist, so my recommendations might not suit you, but the greatest ever in my opinion are
    Hank Williams
    Ray price
    Webb pierce
    Bill Anderson
    Jim Reeves
    Loretta Lynn
    Connie Smith
    Hank Thompson
    Conway twitty
    And the great Ernest Tubb
