There is a thriving underground country music scene that features artists holding true to the old school country sound.
Drawing influence from folk troubadours, popular country of the 60s and 70s as well as the bluegrass mountain hymns of Appalachia and the delta blues. In recent years, this music has received more attention thanks to ground breaking releases from troubadours like Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price.
I wrote about 20 of these artists around this time last year and have since gotten to know a few more and felt like you might need to check them out. Again, I recommend you give a few, if not all, a solid listen and let me know what you think in the comment section below.
