Louvin Brothers, Hank, classic honky tonk.. & that era of classic country is awesome. Check out the classic country channel HPR1 - it's a free public radio station without commercials & can be streamed. They only play the classics... & it's a great place to start.

 

I'm also a huge fan of The Byrds, Flying Burritos Brothers, Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, Manassas & Emmylou... essentially the 1st country rock. The Byrds Sweet Heart of the Rodeo, Flying Burritos Gilded Palace of Sin are incredible sister albums. Everly Brothers have a few good tunes in this genre that are right up there.. like Cuckoo Bird or I'm on my way home again.

This sound eventually led to the Outlaw Country phase headed up by Waylon, Willie & others...

 

For me pedal steel is one of the most amazing instruments.. the tone is so fascinating & how the notes glide is almost celestial. I'm lucky I live in Texas & we have so many old Honky Tonks, dance halls, & awesome juke boxes packed with great tunes.

^ Yes!

 

I'm a Gene fanatic... Roadmaster & No Other are maybe my fav Gene albums but his more bluegrassy work with Doug Dillard is not to be missed too. Also, The Dillards pre & post Doug have some good tunes but kinda spotty albums. But really this scene was just a couple dozen guys moving between different bands playing in different configurations.

 

Gene & Gram get a lot of attention - Chris Hillman doesn't get enough praise, I think he is incredible... he is the one that made it through these times.. alive & able to tell the tales...

 

Here's one from the famous Altamont concert -

The Notorious Byrd Brothers is one of the greatest albums I've ever heard.

Yeah, the song from Easy Rider & on that album, Wasn't Born To Follow, is a complete classic.

 

It's a good psych rock album but not much country rock feel to that one.

Can't go wrong with Emmylou Harris:

 

She is also the ultimate GILF.

 

For sure, mate. I saw her record her Austin City Limits performance last year & it was so good. Her & Rodney Crowell (another legend), played a healthy dose of Gram & Townes, other classic tunes as well as their own. Their backing band was amazing - a great bunch of musicians that really understood honky tonk / country music.

 

& she is still a looker.

Yeah, great tune by Glen. Always, liked his version the best. That & 'Galveston'... being a surfer in Texas, makes that one a instant classic.

But it's totally rad he is playing a Jaguar in that video.. who plays country on a Jag?

 

I'll back that one up with one of my favorite Charlie tunes:
