If heaven ain’t a lot like Dixie- Hank Jr.


If they don't have a Grand Ole Opry
Like they do in Tennessee
Just send me to Hell or New York City
It would be about the same to me

Townes Van Zandt’s ‘Dead Flowers’ (maybe) tops the original. Another tragic Country anti-hero.

I’d argue Dead Flowers, Sweet Virginia, or Love in Vain covered by the Stones.
Whitey Morgan does a solid with one of Townes Van Zandts first songs, "Waiting Around to Die", I still prefer Townes but Whitey did a great job.

Not new country by any means, but Id be willing to bet most of yall have never heard of him, let alone listened to his music: Chris Knight. Do yourself a favor and listen to a few of his songs! Down the river, it aint easy being me, house and 90 acres, North Dakota, pretty much the whole "a pretty good guy" album. I don't know how true it is, but Ive heard said that all of his songs are experiences hes either been through personally or knows someone who has.
If that's true then hopefully he's past the statute of limitations for killing ole Wilson in "Down the River"...
