Which artists do you recommend for someone who's slowly appreciating country music but doesn't like the twang and whine that a lot of songs and artists have? Is there a compromise of country and rock? I'm a rock and metal fan through and through; is there a happy medium anywhere?
The ONLY country cd is I have is from 2004 when Redneck Woman (Gretchen Wilson) came out. I liked Shania Twain when I was in junior high school and Taylor Swift is okay, but too young for my musical taste (I'm almost 30).
One of my favorite actors from the TNT show Leverage recently released an EP (five songs) that are country and I love the sound of them.

I don't like coutry, or should i say POP country...hate it. But, i will listen to some Americana, which some people think is country but its not. "The gourds" are my favorite as far as Americana go. I LOVE Gillian Welch, she is more folky & old timey, which i LOVE. Shinyribs is one of my new favorites. Here is the gourds covering Snoop's Gin & Juice. It's very well done country style!
