Alt Country - Wilco, Bonnie Raitt, Mudcrutch, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris
By Rhino Records
Alt Country is a subgenre, a niche, an artistic mongrel for those bands and fans who heard an unmistakable truth in early country that they took into their post punk/ indie rock lives. The style and grit of icons like Hank Williams Sr. and Johnny Cash got lost in modern country radio and was reignited late at night in beer bars full of alternative music lovers craving melody and stories. Alt country is a continuum of artists, influenced by the past, striving to create something new and lasting. Get more playlists at "Rhinofy.com".
