Points of information:

Glen Philips, the lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, in the early 2000's went on tour with a up-and-coming "Newgrass" bluegrass band called Nickel Creek. Recorded a couple songs together and all.

And, Darius Rucker, frontman for Hootie and the Blowfish, now has a successful solo country music career. When asked about the change in an interview, he stated that from the start, him and his band WANTED to have more of a country sound, but they were a cover band at a time when Dave Matthews Band was what people wanted to hear, so that's what they played.

So hoping I embedded this video right, but what genre would this be considered? I just started listening to this guy, and I tend to like his music a lot more than the crap you find on the country radio stations about wal-mart, dancing on tractors, or high school baby momma drama.

phenry, thanks for the video. I've never heard of the guy but like it. To me it's a blue-grass Hank cross.

Yes Miss Swift sucks as far as the genre is concerned, but she's catchy. Ever hear that 'one day I'll be living in a big old city' song? It'll be in your head for hours, and that's what seems to get radio time.
Country as a whole isn't the same as the 1960s-70's, and that's okay with me (having not lived in either of those decades, but enjoying the music). It's more of what used to be called Southern Rock with a few bad apples (Jason Aldean, for instance). Kyle

Sounds like Old Crow Medicine Show, whatever they're considered.

I would say old crow medicine show is bluegrass, they have less of the jam band feel that most “string bands” have.

I still agree that one of her ex's should write a song titled "Maybe the problem is you"
I laughed so hard at this part! That is awesome

I don't follow celeb gossip, but this was too funny not to share.

Taylor Swift should bust Into the delivery room when Kardashian and Kanye West are having their baby and announce "I'm happy for you and imma let you finish, but Beyonce had the cutest baby of all time. Of all time."
