While ignoring the pop country genre that seems to have infiltrated radio stations across the nation, we find that there’s some really great “Americana” style music out there. We play Johnny Cash all the time on our FMF episodes, and feature many near-country artists as well. With this playlist, we’re featuring country music in its broadest form, minus the over-polished pop country that you can find on the radio. If that’s your style, feel free to turn there. Check this out for some deeper tracks and artists you might not have heard of and country styles that differ from the norm.
First few artists: Wayne Hancock, Todd Snider, Buck Owens, My Morning Jacket, I Nine, Nikki Lane, Bright Eyes, Billy Bragg And Wilco
