******* stupid game
I've never really been into country but a couple of years ago I was concentrating on something at work so had the headphones on, blocking the office out and listening to something or other on youtube. My song ended and youtube started playing random sh*t and I just let it run. For some reason it threw The Dixie Chicks "Goodbye Earl" at me and I was blown away. That song and video clip are just about perfect.

Then I saw them on the 2017 tour, geez they were good. I think I was one of very few people in the audience who recognised the pre-recorded bluegrass piece in the middle of the show as a cover of Motorhead's "Ace of Spades".



Their cover of Bob Dylan's "Mississippi" was probably the highlight of the show:

This is just so cool

Is it me or does Waylon sound better live or what? Love watching him live. Most of the times he was just off his face on blow but still pretty darn good.
i've listened to his live album a million times by now.

He’s touring with Merle Haggard's band this time round so it might be a different type of show.
wish he was playing in Perth. One of the greatest song writers.

This tv series is a good watch IMo. They do Jennings, George jones, Billy Joe Shaver, Jonny paycheck and a few more.

I'm so buzzed for Kristofferson, it was the privilege of my life to see him once, I can't believe I'm going to get another chance.

Haven't read through the thread, but if he hasn't been mentioned already Gram Parsons deserves to be in any convo about country music imo

Normally Adelaide misses out on Gigs. strange how KK is going there. Bit disappointed he didn't add gig here in Perth.


Been listening to both these versions on a regularly. Both have their beauty to it. KK is more subtle but Waylon live comes across with a ton of passion. IMO this song is pure poetry. Showed this to one of my muso mates (not a country fan at all) and he was taken back by the lyrics.

Josie is another one that i recently started listen on a regular basis.

Tyler Childers' new album is a ripper. Big Country fan listening at the moment to Childers, Guy Clark, Arlo McKinley, John Prine. Sturgill Simpson and Colter Wall my modern day favourites.
