Favorite Artists

Buck Owens & His Buckaroos
Buck Owens, his sideman Don Rich, and the other Buckaroos defined the Bakersfield sound.

Merle Haggard
Merle Haggard is country music. There has been no better singer/songwriter in the genre's history.

Marty Stuart
Marty Stuart appreciates the history behind this wonderful genre, and you can hear that appreciation in his music. Still, his music remains new and fresh.

Tammy Wynette
Tammy conveyed emotion and honesty with every syllable, and honesty is what country music is all about.

Josh Turner
Josh Turner is one of the only modern country artists who haven't sold out.

Favorite Albums

Buck Owens & The Buckaroos - The Carnegie Hall Concert
This album is THE definitive live album in country music. How can anyone not love it?

Marty Stuart - The Pilgrim
Bluegrass, country, and folk are coherently mixed together on this fabulous album.

Keith Harling - Write It in Stone
Too bad Keith Harling didn't make it in country music. His debut CD was a perfect blend of traditional country and relevance.

Johnny Paycheck - The Real Mr. Heartache: The Little Darlin' Years
Johnny Paycheck's best work was not "Take This Job and Shove It" nor any other song from the 1970's. The songs he recorded in the 1960's are real gems.

Mark Chesnutt - Thank God for Believers
This CD is arguable Chesnutt's best. Straight-up country at its modern-day finest.
