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.
I know of Radney Foster, but maybe I should dig around more.
Also, the 90s. And when I say the 90s, I mean that I think Mountain Stage is talking about this song as an alt-country crossover hit because otherwise they’re talking about the best era as folks like Garth, Travis, Billy Ray, Brooks/Dunn and Wynonna.
