forgot about Alison Krauss in Hyde Park - I shall be there to see Bruce
Agree about Hank Williams and Johnny Cash - 2 of the greatest singers in any genre.
Going even further back, Jimmie Rodgers still sounds astonishingly ahead of his time. Writing/recording in the late '20's/early '30's you can still hear his influence on the development of what became "rock'n'roll" and artists like Buddy Holly and Bob Dylan.

Another one brought up listening to Country and with a liking for it myself.
Me too. I saw Johnny Cash on his 25th Anniversary tour when I was 14!
I'm not too thrilled with the vast majority of the archetypal 'Rhinestones' country, but do like artists like Steve Earle (seem him twice one with the Dukes for the 'Exit 0' tour, & on the 'Townes Van Zandt' tour)Dwight Yoakham
Dixie Chicks (saw them at Manchester a few years ago)
Del McCoury Band (superb CD with Steve Earle; 'The Mountain'
Sweethearts of the Rodeo
Dolly Parton (but the '90s/00's bluegrass, like 'Little Sparrow')And of course the clasics;
Cash (& the Carter Family)Hank Williams
Jerry Reed (wrote 'Guitar Man' - sang by Elvis, & was 'Snowman' in the Smokey & The Bandit films)Willie Nelson (wrote 'Crazy' - Patsy Cline)KD Lang Kris Kristofersson (was 'Rubber Duck' in the ilm Convoy)
Just to mention a few - lots more aren't springing to mind at the moment
I'm not mad for the traditional stuff but you can't beat a bit of melancholic Americana late at night when you've had a few too many JDs...
On a similar vibe, this is my favourite version of Wichita Lineman...
Nobody came back to me on The Grande,which either means you didn't have a look or you thought they were sh!te! Thought I'd make it easy for you......

Nice lists. Steve Earle is great live, for an intro try the album Transcendental Blues, he masters everything from ballads to the harder end of country rock.
Got to agree, he's bounced back from addictions & is still a brilliant songwriter.
