Les Paul and Mary Ford.

Too old to be audiophile, but Hank Williams is my favorite. Cash, Willie, and George Jones are great too.

I like the new Morgan Wallen album too, but he is an idiot and I don't think the production is super special.

I second The Carolina Chocolate Drops! Great band of black Americans doing their musical history proud.

Iron & Wine - Beast Epic is an incredible Americana album. Amazing song writing, beautiful music and high quality recording/production.

Posts 28, 39, 72 & 79 only show "Video unavailable" in Canada (and probably elsewhere) so we have no idea what you are recommending. Please add add artist and song to your posts so we can check them out too.

Garth Brooks. He has sold the second most albums ( behind only the Beatles) of any artist. The sound quality of his his albums are fantastic... digital before the loundness wars. The only issue is he does not like streaming and his music is only available on Amazon HD streaming. You can pick up his CDs for a $1 or $2... Well worth it.

I watched The Eagles - Live From The Forum 2018 again last night it got Vince Gill singing in my head till I got up today. That pushed me into a Vince Gill orgy of music all morning and thru the afternoon. I've always been a major VG fan and have a good sized chunk of his catalog on my harddrive. A ultra talented singer, guitar player, and writer, IMO he's been one of a small group to true musical genius of the last 50 years.
God Bless Country Music.

I'm born and bred country but missed this thread. Far too many to list and I have not kept up in recent years. I did work for Bocephus for a while one summer back in 1977 (as sound tech for live shows). I survived.
