    We've got one and it needs some love.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Very tempted to move all the country chatter to it so, and help bolster that thread instead of derailing this one so much.

    Thanks for sharing that. A few songs there I need to check out.

    Have you listened to Willie Nelson's prog-country album Red Headed Stranger? Also Requiem for a Harlequin by David Allen Coe is a prog country album and probably the most leftie cw album ever.

    Have you heard Crooked Still? They are one of my favourites floating around somewhere in the progressive bluegrass and folk space.


    Crooked Still - Orphan Girl (Gillian Welch cover)


    Crooked Still - New Railroad


    Crooked Still - Little Sadie


    Crooked Still - The Golden Vanity

    Ain't it though? My mom would listen to country music in the car. While I honestly didn't like the majority of it, I loved this song.

    Here's one I remember my Dad playing a lot when I was a kid.


    Emmylou Harris - The Queen of the Silver Dollar

    This thread is making me dig up the songs I enjoyed with my mom. The part about cotton on the side of the road made/makes me think about riding to visit my grandma in North Carolina. We would ride by miles and miles of corn, tobacco and cotton.

    Here's one about Sugar Cane.


    Mary Gauthier - Sugar Cane

    And a couple more by the brilliant Mary Gauthier:


    Drag Queens in Limousines


    Camelot Motel

    I have seen her a couple of times playing gigs in London. She puts on great shows.

    This song always makes me cry. It's a Harry Belafonte song, made famous by Don Williams. Krauss's version is the saddest. It makes Morrissey and Robert Smith seem so happy.
