Emmylou Harris. Beautiful woman and a beautiful voice. She reminds me a lot of Nanci Griffith for some reason.

One of my favorite country story tellers...Tom T Hall:



This one is slightly more modern, but I consider it a true western love song.

Westerns were all the rage on TV in the 50's and most of the 60's, so it only makes sense that it bled over into music.

The first Dwight Yoakum song I ever heard; the great Pete Anderson on lead guitar.

Not really a "classic" in a time sense, but a great tune.

Thanks Gus. I absolutely think “Little Rock” is a classic, using the classic car definition of 25 years or more; there was some great Country music in the 90s.

I can’t listen to a Dan Seals recording and not think of this one, probably his best known.



You might have recognized Janie Fricke on the stage with Dan Seals.



I’ve always loved the female singers, I could imagine they were singing to me. Of the “pure Country” singers, I always thought she was the best. My wife and I saw Tammy and Jones live back in the 80s. I don’t know if her technique was perfect, or if she was just blessed (probably both), but I thought she could sing to the back of the performance hall without a microphone, incredible power.

This is a great song. I’ve always termed it “LA Blues”

I find modern country music like a bad parody. A bunch of guys sounding like they think they're supposed to sound, or doing what corporate tells them. I've always said country singers were fake. lol The twang, the affect. Now days when I hear it it's so bad I cringe. Linguistically speaking a British accent and a southern accent are very close to being the same thing. Yet when Brits sing, really no accent. Country? Tons of accent. It's a put on. Big Grin


I could not agree with you more. It's been a couple of years, but I thought this fellow did a great take down on the current state of Country music.

As a Northerner, I was not brought up on Country music. But, in the mid-80s, I drove from Chicago to Dallas to visit my sister who'd moved there.

On the way, scanning the radio dial, this song by a guy I'd never heard of was wildly popular and I was hooked.



Later on, I started listening to another fellow who didn't get much airtime in Chicago. My friends groaned when I'd put on his albums, but I didn't care. Razz

You won't get an argument from me. She may not be "pure Country", but she is fantastic.

I love her version of Evangeline.



Similarly, Eilen Jewell may not be pure Country, but I like her music a lot.

Eilen Jewell’s guitar player is Jerry Miller, and he’s outstanding!

I like his solo on this one



Speaking of guitar players (and Emmylou).
I don’t know what the problem is with embedding this video, it’s Vince Gill at the 2007 Clapton Guitar Festival. It’s a fun perf and worth following the link to YT. The drummer is Billy Cannon, who’s played with Vince for years. The bass player is Michael Rhodes, a Nashville based player who does a lot of touring and session work; I’ve seen him twice touring with Joe Bonamassa.

Great song.

One more Emmylou Harris. She did an album and tour with Mark Knopfler. Definitely not Country, but I think her work with Knopfler speaks volumes for her range and talent.
