Living in the North Country I hear little country music on the radio. There are a number of stations that play that “Contemporary Country” music but none that play “real” country: Waylon, Willie, George, Hank Jr., Merle, Jerry Jeff.
Thank God for the internet! There are a few “Classic Country” stations I stream on my computer and on my iPhone. And there is, of course, YouTube.
I have been on a Jerry Jeff Walker kick of late. I saw Jerry Jeff play in big bar somewhere outside of Austin, Texas, almost 30 years ago. It was an evening of real Texas beer and bar-b-que and real country music.
On the last Monday in August, I cannot think of a better singer or song.
