All are genius.

Edit:  Which one is playing at BBQ Fest this year, GB?

Is it too early for me to commit to that weekend?

Never too early.. in fact if you're serious you should book rooms soon. I booked mine in September. Inbox me if you need assistance as there are significant YES/NO marks on most hotels downtown. Pricing is $150-300/nt at this point and you'd wanna be here Thurs > Sat (comp day) or Sun.  

@sbonomo and his evil twin will be in town as always as well... as will @Tusken Raider (another team next door)

The Star Room Boys (no longer together):

 

Liar in my heart - https://youtu.be/i4sSlGVOpFM

 

Souvenir - https://youtu.be/BGDMVqPP9ig

 

Always been one of my favs for this genre, pissed I never got to see them live

 

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats:

 

SOB - https://youtu.be/1iAYhQsQhSY

 

St Paul and the Broken Bones:

 

Grass is Greener - https://youtu.be/8Y_eiyO77b4

(doubtful they qualify as alt-country, but not sure where they'd fit either)

Looks like the old threads have been archived so I thought it would be good to start a new one.

Heard this today:

Black Berry Smoke - Good One

Blackberry Smoke has been one of my favorites for about five years now (my band covers seven of their tunes).  But I really consider them good ole southern rock.  Charlie Starr is a ridiculous talent on both vocals and guitar. Got to hang a bit with the guys after a show last year. Really cool and down to earth. Have corresponded some with the drummer, Brit Turner.  His beautiful little daughter is a cancer survivor, and the band does a lot for pediatric cancer causes. 

The Whippoorwill and Little Piece of Dixie are amazing albums front to back. The new album has some outstanding tracks as well.

St Paul and Broken Bones are straight out of the Alabama soul school of Florence/Muscle Shoals - a lot of those bands out there these days.

Lucero is weird for me.  I only know a few songs, and while I like they way they sound, the songs don't hook me.

What songs do you know? 

Their songs aren't generally "hook-y" in a traditional sense. Lucero is, IMO, best consumed in an extending sitting like a playlist or live show. 

They are playing their annual "Family Christmas" show here in Memphis next Saturday and I can't ####### wait. One of the top few shows I see every year.

My favorite band.  Love these guys.  

What's your favorite one to cover, and do you sound a bit like Charlie when you sing it?

Nights Like These is the only one I can think of.  A few have popped up on Spotify as recommendations, but they haven't stuck with me.

Some favorites (don't have time to link, but all can be found easily):

The War
My Best Girl 
Slow Dancing
Texas & Tennessee
I Can get us out of here 
I'll Just Fall 
Sweet Little Thing
That Much Further West 
What Else Would you Have Me Be? 
Tears Don't Matter Much 
What are you Willing to Lose 
Goodbye Again 
Can't Feel A Thing

Or.. check out Ben Nichols' solo stuff "Last Pale Light"... 

If nothing from there stirs ya, Lucero probably isn't your thing (not a bad thing).

First time I saw Dwight Yoakam live (who I would argue is the best mainstream representative of this genre), they opened...a most bad-### concert!

You tell me. (Note: questionable sound quality)

https://youtu.be/sFROU-4EOE0

My favorite tends to shift over time between Shake Your Magnolia, Like I Am, Good One Comin' On, and Pretty Little Lie.

If anyone isn't already listening to Lucero, you might be missing the best example of the overall genre..... 

You beat me to it. You going to the show at Minglewood on 12/17?

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers are playing at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix on New Year's Eve. They are going to play 10 cover songs from 1976, then do a full set of their stuff. My bro and I have tickets. Can't wait.

When this song kicked off that episode of The Walking Dead I remember saying, "Holy $&@!, that's Lucero!"

"The Mountain" something more upbeat/footstompin'.

The guys covering "Modern Love" (give them a minute to get going in this clip, the sax & keyboards sound awesome.)
