    Anybody listen to the Taylor Swift cover album he did? Really bad.

    also i am ON THE RECORD unhappy with you disputing me posting a Rolling Stones song. what even IS a country artist, mee. Sally G charted #17 Billboard, #51 US Country!!!



    but for realz, with the Stones I could grab multiple examples.













    these are country songs. your thread is called "country songs."




    The Grateful Dead were a country/folk rock band from like 1970 to 1972. Earlier they were more psych, later they got jazzier. But Dire Wolf up there? Try and deny it's country. Half of their fucking songs are about gambling (specifically playing cards) and drinking.









    here is a Merle Haggard song they did.







    I won't list one of the Lady Gaga country songs from her last album but know that I will if you step 2 me.

    We all know the Stones are a rock band


    The Beatles have country songs, Jack White has country songs...but they're not reeeally "country songs." Ya dig?

    What kind of music is this?



    Retro-Neo-Bluegrass?

    Tons of the stuff I like, if you look it up, under genre it says: Bluegrass, not Country.

    So I looked up, "What is the difference between Country and Bluegrass?"
    and found nothing but bullshit, about, like,
    "Wull, in Bluegrass, they usually have tight harmonies."

    The only difference I hear is that you have to be able to play really fast/well if you're in a Bluegrass band.

    I'll post Kris Kristofferson altho really I would rather just listen to Willie's versions of all these fuckers. As an aside, I am not into Johnny Cash at all, despite his large repertoire of songs written by Kristofferson and Bob Dylan and shit. I know I've read Bob Dylan saying Johnny Cash is like how some people think about Elvis, in that you can go back to the '50s Sun recordings and have all you need there, but I haven't gone back to listen to those for JC. I don't care to, I guess. Just not into his voice, at least on his popular recordings.

    What about this guy?








    I like transgressive Country.
    According to Wikipedia, "Outlaw Country" is a sub-genre.
