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

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

you're from louisville? my dad lives in louisville, anchorage area. I'm trying to move out there.

Oh also the first two Ryan Bingham albums are great. Not sure how "alt" his style of country is, though.
ryan bingham rules.
also, I used to play bass in dads.

What was it before? It's still super broad.
instead of alt country, I had it as bluegrass.

Get the fuck out of here. I was just telling my girlfriend last night that I'd love to be Dads' bass player, haha.
haha, yeah, for the first 6 months of their existence. then we had a falling out. scott and i used to be roommates.

now I just play mandolin and grow a beard.
