I would quibble with the genres you listed in the title, but it's whatever.

I'm a big fan of TbT, Tallest Man and JTE so I'll check out those other two recs.

Give the fine fellow in my avatar a whirl:





And I'm assuming you're well aware of Mr. Ryan Adams, but just in case you aren't:



Isbell, Adams and Earle are actually all good friends too. Isbell and Adams toured together extensively last year, and Isbell regularly sits in with JTE live. Here's a couple of videos of them together:





And finally, you should definitely check out Night Beds. Debut album came out Tuesday, and they're on Fallon tonight:

Hahaha no, I do see the resemblance though. He also looks a lot like Matt Stafford, the Lions' QB:

No problem, always glad to spread the alt-country love! Also good news is Isbell has a new album coming out this year most likely, and Adams might and JTE probably will.

No I have not, song sounds cool, I'll check him out!

This thread is really amusing and coincidental now given that I was literally just hired by the site today partially to cover alt-country

Oh God yes. One of my favorite albums lately.
Haha I think me and you are the only people on this site who are ga-ga over that record man. It's seriously so good though

Not sure why more people on here aren't talking about it. Seems like it'd be decently up some people's alleys.

Ah well. This dude is pretty legit, too (I think I first heard him from a poster here, but who knows): http://austincraigmusic.com/album/a-country-dark

Changed the thread title to more accurately reflect the music that's been posted in here so far. Hope you don't mind OP. Let's make this thread a thing guys, I'm on a mission to expose more people on this site to this style of music haha.
