I think country music had already started to go to shit when TV cowboys like Gene Autry were the rage in the 1950s, and the rhinestone studded outfits of Porter Wagoner demonstrated that country music's commercial popularity had turned Nashville into Hollywood East in the 1960s. By the time HeeHaw was on TV in the 1970s, it was already poking fun at days gone by. Way back in the 1930s, Jimmie Rodgers was at the turning point of country going commercial. There hasn't been very much authenticity since then outside of bluegrass gospel except for a few outliers like early Loretta Lynn.

Agree with everything stated, with one exception...You failed to mention The Carter Family. And one of the least known, great guitarists--Mother Maybelle. Hard ass sonsabitches back then....

They would definitely be among the outliers.

Tyler Mahan Coe, son of David Allan Coe, has some interesting podcasts on country music history. The series is titled "Cocaine and Rhinestones". It gives a little peak inside the lives and careers of some who influenced what country music has become.

I agree to a certain degree. C & W music obviously has done a transition over the years. Not sure why the 70's decided they needed rhinestones, etc. But, there were some good stars from that era.
Glen Campbell, for all his 'pop' crossover, was a great guitarist and a true C & W star IMHO. Same for Roy Clark and Buck Owens.
I do agree 100% that the Shania Twain's of the business ruined C & W music and set it on a dark path, lol.

No mention of the GOAT, Chris LeDoux?

It's been all down hill since he passed.

I would agree. I met him a couple times. Very cool dude. His son Ned lives not that far away from us.

Turnpike Troubadours, Cody Jinks, Cody Johnson, Aaron Watson are on my playlist right now.

Ned comes out and plays in a little roadhouse west of Omaha now and again. He's actually coming to Fremont in APR for a concert after the bullriding. Just bought my tickets
Another good singer that is old school. Adam Lee & The Deadhorse Band.

Haven't seen them love but they're pretty good. Not sure how they haven't ended up on the radio.

I’m not really a cult of personality type of guy but I’ll admit many of his songs shaped some of my attitudes as a young man. He lived a fascinating life and had a great way of describing those things in life that are both good and hard.

Especially Copenhagen Junkie.
