Headphones Recommended: The Country Mix, y'all

"I hate country music." I've heard that statement many times from many people. Thing is, almost always, their exposure to the country/bluegrass genre has been via top 40 "country" radio stations. I completely agree that the crap they pass as "country" sucks about 49 out every 50 songs. When people assume that what they hear on those radio stations is country, they understandingly make the conclusion they hate country. What is truly sad is they are closing the door to a whole world of some of the best music I've ever heard, alternative country.

Me, I like myself a good twang &/or fiddle on a regular basis. That is pretty much what this compilation consists of, alternative country & bluegrass. Enjoy!
