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.
Kelly Hogan - Sugarbowl
Happy Birthday Hogan! Thanks for everything.
Tweet her a Happy Birthday, because everyone likes to be told Happy Birthday.
Jon Rauhouse & Kelly Hogan - Ac-cent-u-ate the Positive (live)
Starts all ballad-y and picks up after that. Real boss sangin’ from Hogan and fine swingin’ pedal steel guitar from Jon.
The Magnetic Fields version just came up on the stereo, which reminded me of Hogan’s excellent cover.
“Papa Was A Rodeo” - Kelly Hogan And The Pine Valley Cosmonauts (The Magnetic Fields Cover)
Here is another version of “Papa Was A Rodeo”. This example of pure alt-country goodness is from the album Beneath the Country Underdog released in 2000.
