Thats a great post Raider Sam. I was born in Post. A lot of the ‘country’ that comes from the Nashville music machine is pop-centric mush with a hook. There are a few exceptions. They get guaranteed air time from the PR machine and create their own market thru repetition. They are very good at it. Glad to see your list of original artists. Sounds similar to mine and many others here in Texas.
Many thanks to wardaddy for pointing out this one ...
Angel Flight - Radney Foster
Thanks. Btw, I got a speeding ticket leaving Post for Lbk my 1st year. When I first saw a sign that said Post and had an arrow, I though “they forgot to write office on that sign.”
I really like Radney. I have a lot of friends from Okie State and TAMU as well, and the one thing we can all agree on is Red Dirt/Texas Country, however you want to call it.
The new music is very pop centric. Also, they write songs using lyrics about Creedence Clearwater or Peggy Sue, and these guys are not much older than me (25). Im pretty damn sure Kenny Chesney was not making out with anyone named Peggy Sue listening to Proud Mary in the mid 80’s.
