Some Country Music

Today's music is country. Start old timey with Merle Haggard, The Bottle Let Me Down, and Okie from Muskogee, both on eMusic. Next for the anti Okie from Muskogee there's Ray Wylie Hubbard singing Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother, on iTunes. Then for more from Oklahoma, the traditional Red River Valley by Johnny Williams and the Playboys, on eMusic; the modern country Okie Skies by the Bays Brothers (no relation) on eMusic; and some Austin style Western Swing: Asleep at the Wheel, Take Me Back to Tulsa, and Cotton-Eyed Joe, on eMusic. Next head north to Alberta for Big Boned Gal by k.d. lang, on iTunes. Then go south to Sinoloa for Compadres in the Old Sierra Madre by The Waybacks, on eMusic. Then some bluesy country, Flyin Shoes by Townes Van Zandt, on eMusic. Finish up with crossover country by the Dixie Chicks, Not Ready to Make Nice, on iTunes. But get the music video; it's excellent.
