    I really liked that song Dude, quite beautiful actually. I love how you can even hear coughs in the background, feels very intimate and very fitting for the kind of song this is.

    It is a little different to that but the lead guitarist from the Foo Fighters, Chris Shiflett, just released a solo country album called Hard Lessons. I particularly enjoyed the lead track Liars Word.

    Sorry guys, neglected the Country thread for the past couple of months. Criminal really. Anyway, John Prine bought a song out this year, if anyone wants to hear what he's up to nowadays. Some nice guitar on this one.

    Love me some old country.

    This song has a spiritual life after death feel. Good stuff.

    ^ Man, between this and the Dusty Rhodes material, you are living in an entirely different era, full of different moods and approaches. Much respect.

    Though it's country rap, I am really feeling these two songs by an artist called Jelly Roll. He struggles with depression and many elements that come from a lower socio-economical experience. I think he conveys pain nicely through each chorus while telling true and vulnerable stories.

    "Smoking Section"




    "Same Asshole"

    I grew up down the street from that guy. We used to smoke weed and backyard wrestle all the time during the summer. Then I moved away and years later when I moved back home, all the guys from the old neighborhood were telling me about how he was in the verge on blowing up. Crazy stuff.

    That's a great story. He strikes me as just that type of guy. Reminds me of a lot of folks I grew up with but am far from now. Were you surprised when you heard or was it something people thought might happen?

    That was quite a different feel to what I expected Mystic. Quite enjoyed it which I did not expect to.

    I'll be for sure googling the lyrics and reading through them, rap lyrics often hide a lot of depth that you need to dig into.

    It's crazy when someone you once knew blows up, you feel a big sense of pride but its also a bit of a mind bending thing because you always remember them as tjhe person you knew before they were famous.

    Benny I loved that piece you put up. I adore country music that tells those kinds of stories I feel like that is the biggest strength of the genre, you can't help but feel it is authentic, even when it is cheesy.

    He's actually just turned up in my 'release radar'. Anyone wants to hear the latest from him check out 'Holy Ghost Fire'.

    What are our feeling about Old Town Road?

    A month or so ago there was a lot of conjecture about how not calling it country was country music gate keeping. While I don't mind people being creative with genres I can't help but feel like the song is clearly just a hip hop song about beimg cow boy that sampled a country music song.

    D'you know musically I live so far in my own little world now that while I know of it's existence, I still haven't actually heard it.

    But I reckon there'll be some strong opinions, from what I have heard people say about it elsewhere.

    I worry that generally popular country has already stripped a lot of what makes country special. When was the last time you heard a popular song with brushes on the drums or mandolins so something like Old Town Road does worry me.

    That said it is easier than ever to find more niche tracks that do have those things I enjoy, they just aren't as widely listened to.

    It’s a fucking dumb song that is already spawning a horrendous fad in music.
