If you like some great instrumentation and some depth to your music, try some Marshall Tucker on.......

I prefer the older country over the new. Johnny Cash's albums he released in the few years before he passed are excellent.

I also like "Americana" which will cover a pretty wide genre. I love singer/songwriters too such as Guy Clark, Joe Ely , Terry Allen, Delbert McLinton.

A few more- Robert Earl Keen, Asleep at the Wheel, Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joe Shaver, Chris Knight, Dale Watson, Hayes Carll, Hayseed Dixie, Jason Isbell, James McMurtry, Junior Brown, Sturgill Simpson, John Prine, Old Crow Medicine show, Ryan Bingham, and Steve Earle

If you play country music backwards, you’ll get your truck back, your wife back, and your dog back!

Dolly, Tammy, Roseanne Cash, Patsy Cline, ...Even Krisstoferson.

Vince Gill and the Cherrybombs(?) It's hard to kiss the lips at night which chew your ass out all day long!

All the new stuff sounds the same. Yawn

A lot of people hit on the good ones so this will probably be overlap:

Luke Combs - IMO, the best "new country" sound out there. Has a great voice and keeps it classic while still being fresh.
Aaron Lewis - Who would have ever thought the lead singer from Staind would be this good of a country singer?
Darius Rucker - Refer to above.

I like John Pardi and Jason Aldean as well.

A lot of people hate on Luke Bryan but you really can't hate a song that's called "Huntin, Fishin, Lovin' Everyday"

For a different twist: Russell Moore and IIrd Tyme Out. They're bluegrass but did an awesome cover of "Country Roads" and "Mama Tried"

If you have XM Radio, Willie's Roadhouse is a damn fine channel. Nothing but classic country there and some good stuff by some artists you've never heard of from way back in the day.

Merle Haggard has a bunch of great ones. Ramblin' Fever, Mama Tried, Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down
Almost anything by Willie Nelson. I'm surprised nobody has tossed out any suggestions for Hank Williams Jr (Country Boy Can Survive, Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound, Women I've Never Had) or Charlie Daniels Band (Devil Went Down to Georgia, Long Haired Country Boy, Uneasy Rider). If you want a little more Southern Rock you can't go wrong with Marshal Tucker Band.

Prime Country on XM is another excellent channel. Lots of variations of country music, but the stuff played on mainstream radio channels today is pop country and it isn't very good
