Country music has grown in stature, wealth and glitz, but our definition stays true to the great American genre, where voices are plainspoken (and never auto-tuned) and songs are direct reflections of the heart. This collection tends to the hard country sounds of 1960s honky tonks with the likes of JP Harris and Kenny Vaughan, but there’s also some Western swing from silky vocalist Carolyn Martin and a bit of bluegrass bounce from Tim O’Brien. Music City is where country music came to be exposed to the wider world, and we’re proud to carry on that Nashville tradition.
At Music City Roots, we call it true country, hard country, or deep country to distinguish what we love from radio country pop. Whatever you call it, the good stuff is a staple on our stage.
