Some time back was working a trade show in Nashville. We had a reception for customers- including a Bluegrass trio. Folks kept asking them to play modern Country & Western numbers.

I went over with 3 beers- told them to get good country music, you had to get a buzz on the fiddler- and did they know Shady Grove? Big grin, and some real good music followed. Met Lester Scruggs granddaughter that evening.

my grandfather liked Bluegrass music. it was about the only music he would listen too. he very seldom really listened to very much music, but Bluegrass was what he would listen to when he did.

Awesome! i never thought anyone could do justice to a George Jones song, but Alan Jackson and George Strait hit that one out of the park!

i'd like to see them record that song sometime in the future.

A little bit of country music history. In 1999, George Jones was nominated for single of the year and was to sing "Choices" at the Country Music Awards (CMA). They wanted him to shorten his song to 90 seconds, so in protest George stayed home instead.
Alan Jackson decided to stand up for Jones in away that will forever be remember in country music history. Halfway through the song "Pop a Top", he switched to singing "Choices". After he finished, he quietly walked off the stage and left the Opry.
Jones was watching this unfold from home at the time. Jones said, "What he did meant more to me than I could ever say. I was watching the show, and when he began singing 'Choices,' it moved my wife Nancy and me both to tears. He made a huge statement on my behalf, and on behalf of traditional country music, and didn't worry about what the consequences might be."

I cant believe no one has mentioned my man John Anderson.


Hank 3 is a favorite as well although not classic.


Raunchy but good band from the Raleigh NC area.

Cinder has a thing for John Anderson. Seems like she asks me every week or so if I listen to him.

Yes. Yes I do. Been listening to him since I were just a wee devil pup.

I have a somewhat distant cousin that can sing just like him, and that's not an exaggeration. Sounds just like him. I think he's met him a time or two too.

Here's a little John Anderson.
