Hank the Third.
His debut is especially good.
I don't have a problem with the different country stuff (excluding yodeling), but a lot of what shows up on our stereo sounds an awful lot like power pop. And I listened to Rush and Zeppelin growing up.
I'm just sayin'.
Oh, and another thing: not one of you mentioned George Jones. Not a one.
Come on, people: the man's a legend.
A Picture of Me Without You, White Lightning, The Grand Tour, These Days I Barely Get By, to name but four eternal classics.
Drove a lawn tractor to the bar one night after his wife hid the car keys, too. What more can you want from a country singer?
