You know, Country & Western!
This ain't your Dad's country music. It's your Granddad's! None of that new Nashville bullshit either. This is where you'll find what I consider the best in Country (Classic and Alt), Folk, and Americana.
Elvis Costello - Radio Sweetheart
I’ve had this in my head all morning and this is the most countrified version I can find from his Almost Blue country cover days. Hey, it’s got a pedal steel in it!
Carlene Carter has a version, but it’s not very good. It’d make a for a great honky tonk cover if any bands out there are listening.
Kev Russell’s Junker - Indoor Fireworks
Really outstanding Elvis Costello cover.
Hank Williams goes New Wave.
