Yep and same.
usually the sign of these guys completely selling out is when they start opening for the big pop country acts. that's when the record companies are steering the ship and the artist is just playing the part.
So my girl watches American Idol. She dvr'd it and watched today. Has anybody seen the "country" kid on there? It's such a fucking joke and the worst part is I know they are gonna put his shit on the radio.
I will try to never miss Hank III again after seeing him in Charleston.
I prefer the country portion of his show a little more than the metal stuff. It was pretty rowdy either way.
His opening act was this group Unknown Hinson which is more psycobilly stuff.
Billy Bob's is awesome
I think I've got 3 live from Billy Bob's albums, John Conley, Johnny Lee and Bobby Bare.
RIP Lost Trailers
There are a few exceptions like Junior Brown, but Junior had been around forever before people like Toby Keith put him on their tours.
Fucking hate that kid.
I have decided this is the best country song of all time
Chris LeDoux-This Cowboy's Hat
I was running a 10k a few weeks ago and hit a tough stretch and started singing this song pretty damn loud.....got a lot of strange looks...fuck em, I could listen to this song 100x in a row and not get sick of it
It's an awesome song, I am partial to this one though. makes me sometimes.
Chris LeDoux Riding For a Fall
That's my favorite of his slower songs
Saw Eric Church and Jason Aldean this weekend.
Eric Church was very good live. Did a great set of old and new stuff. I really like his old stuff...Two Pink Lines, Guys Like Me, Sinners like me..etc. But he was certainly very good
Jason was good, too. There were a lot of electric guitar rifts, etc. and Jason commented he liked his country music that way.
Having listened to country music basically my whole life, a lot of country is evolving towards "pop" music for the money, which is somewhat unfortunate. However, there is still some really good country songs.
Eric is awesome live. The best in a small setting, when he is loaded on blow and drunk as shit.
not sure of his faster what's my favorite, County Fair and Cadillac Ranch are good ones.
Seeing him thursday in a venue like this. i'm excited
Don't know if these have been posted but I also don't care.
Ryan Bingham - Sunrise
CRAZY HEART - Ryan Bingham Performs The Weary Kind
Ryan Bingham - Southside Of Heaven
Keith Whitley-"Lord, It Sure Is Drunk Out Tonight"
George Jones - I'll Be Your Steppin' Stone
JERRY JEFF WALKER - Hard Livin'
Dale Watson- I hate these songs
I've been avoiding this thread like crazy cause I knew it'd depress me. And it did.
Can we at least agree that Robert Earl Keen is the best of the past 15 years?
Innsbrook Pavillion? Sounded like a bigger place. Have fun man. I have seen him like 6 times. Great show. Best was in a small bar in Huntsville for about 600 people. Great show.
These Boots, Guys Like Me, Pledge Allegiance to the Hag and Carolina are probably my favorites and awesome live.
Jp is right. Eric is amazing at a college bar or a place that holds like 100 or so. Just gets fucked up and has a ton of energy.
HOOS mine are probably Take Me To The Rodeo and Even Cowboys Like a Little Rock N Roll. I forgot One Less Tornado for the slow songs
Dale Watson - Blessed or Damned
Capstone, I've gotta catch up on my Chris Ledoux.
*edit, no clue why I thought I was posting a picture lol
I showed horses for most of my life so it came with the territory.
it's not that big but it is an outside venue so probably a lot different than seeing him at a bar. these boots and carolina are probably my top 2
It's hard finding some of this stuff on youtube. Only versions I've found are covers done by people who sing worse than I do.
Yeah, still will be a real good show. I saw him outside at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham last year and it was still a great show despite barely being able to see him because we were lazy and wanted to be near the beer.
thats a sacrifice you gotta make sometimes
It was my first time seeing him. Tons of energy. Pounds his chest and points at people in the crowd during the show. Really great show.
Wish I could have seen him in a smaller venue. I've been following him since about 2007 and I just haven't had the opportunity.
1st time I saw Eric was in a Wal Mart parking lot. No lie. CMT has this thing called Road to the CMA's. It was on 280 so me and 2 buddies drove up and saw him.
When was it? No clue about that. I have seen him 5 or 6 times and am really pissed he isn't coming around here any time soon.
I was a freshman in college, but I can't remember which semester. Either fall of 06 or spring of 07
I think the country and metal meshed together much better than I was expecting.
Did you know that Unknown Hinson is Early Cuylor from squidbillies?
In 08 or 09 I saw him at Cowboys near ATL and he was drinking Jack like it was going out of style, talking shit about Rascal Flats and did a megadeath and metallica cover.
His next 3 albums could be shitty and I would have a soft spot in my heart for him
seeing Bingham in two weeks. cant fucking wait
Would love to drink Jack and "prepare" for a show with EC.
if you're in sc he's in charleston the 28th thats where im going
Naaa I'm in Dallas, going to the show this Friday.
As close to a "perfect" slow country song as it gets.
Listened to that cd for about 2 years straight in my car after my uncle played Choctaw Bingo and pointed out the "sister twisters" part. I've been hooked ever since and have bought all his new stuff, but I still put in Aught Three and listen to that shit all the time.
What time you getting to the farm FM?
Welp, McMurtry's Levelland is my new jam.
Ray Wylie Hubbard "Drunken Poet's Dream"
Why y'all gotta be so mean?
Yes I would agree with you there and I like that he's got the same band members for both.
wrt Unknown Hinson, for real? I've listened to the Squidbillies a few times. Seen Hinson twice and never knew.
