Country…and Western

Well, I don’t know if you remember the joke about liking both kinds of music, country and western, but my lazy google search took me to 1980’s The Blues Brothers. Thought it would be older than that. Anyway… I’ve put together a podcast of country music for y’all. This isn’t new country, but good old fashioned country music from the past. We start with some Western Swing, that hybrid of big band music and country. I always enjoyed that music. From there we head into the 1950’s through the 1970’s (oh, a couple of retro songs from the 90’s make it, too), as the classic period of Nashville country music is sampled.

So take a listen to all your favorite music – country and western, with the Sons of the Pioneers. Mike Nesmith, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Asleep at the Wheel, the Fort Worth Doughboys, Lefty Frizzell, Johnny Horton, Dwight Yoakam, kd Lang, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Guy Clark, Jerry Reed, Jerry Lee Lewis, George Jones, Glen Campbell, David Houston, and Loretta Lynn.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
