While I'm certainly no expert, it's always interesting to me to hear non-country music listeners mention "good" country artists because they very rarely fit into the genre that I or most country listeners would call country (though Sea did use the word "influenced"). Like any genre, there are no hard and fast lines, but I wouldn't really consider any of the artists mentioned above to release country music -- the person coming closest being some early Neko.

I do agree with Storm and Static's basic concept though. I think a lot of people who say they don't like country haven't really listened to country outside what they've heard on country radio (which I think of more as southern pop).

Last year I put together a compilation of some of my favorite contemporary country music. All of the artists are on independent labels. Interestingly, the majority of the artists on here whose politics I know are pretty far left (Fulks is libertarian so the conservative is financial rather than the stereotypical social). And they aren't all from the south; in fact, there are a couple Canadians and a band led by a Welshman. Many of them do not have nasal/twangy voices but are country due to the music and lyrics.

1. Saturday Night At The Old Barn Dance - The Pine Valley Cosmonauts
2. I Could Tell You Lies - The Rizdales
3. Don't Know Why - Kelly Willis
4. Georgia Hard - Robbie Fulks
5. At The Bottom Of A Barroom On A Hill In Tennessee - Tom Leach
6. Milly's Cafe - Fred Eaglesmith
7. Right Or Wrong - Kelly Hogan
8. All Over But The Crying - Bruce Robison
9. Who Am I To Say - Justin Townes Earle
10. Lydia - Karen Poston
11. Biloxi - Jack Ingram
12. Lonesome Settled In - The Lawrence Peters Outfit
13. Under The Overpass - Dallas Wayne
14. Waiting For The Smoke To Clear - The Spares
15. Thirty Three - Otis Gibbs
16. Beautiful Mistake - Grey DeLisle
17. Numb - Cast King
18. Credo - Hayseed

Which isn't to say I don't like any contemporary "mainstream country." I love George Strait, the first three Randy Travis albums would probably fall in my top 500 albums ever released in any genre, and what I've heard from Suzy Bogguss, Brad Paisley, and Jamey Johnson isn't bad.

I agree for the most part heather, I tend to think of those bands as more "folk" or "folk-rock." I have a real taste for the more folky bands.

i see, so it's really rather folk... but no, lambchop? maybe it's not twang, but surely some sort of country... but i don't know.

where can one hear that compilation, heather?

I only had a chance to check out the first few songs so far, but I really like the song by Cast King!
