Putting the “Real” back in Country Lyrics where it belongs


Have you noticed the return to quality in Country Music and the larger tent of Americana Music over the last 10 years?  Could this be an awakening in the broad music listening public for quality and “verisimilitude.”?



the appearance of being true or real.

  1. “the detail gives the novel some verisimilitude”

    realismbelievability, plausibilityauthenticitycredibilitylifelikeness

    the verisimilitude of her performance is gripping”

    The insipid state of mainstream commercial Contemporary music on Country Radio and TV?  Could this have something to do with the Corporate mainstream music mafia or is it really our collective unconscious fault? Do we respond reflexively to the onslaught of Corporate advertisements disguised as Country Pop because we are conditioned to do so or do we listen because of an internal apathy (see one and the same)?

    Time to stand up for quality and vote with your concert choices and streaming selections.    Do some of us have honing mechanisms for the “real” thing that screen out the Corporate speak?    I believe so and the Youtube numbers bear this out.   Durham Cool chose these two artists for their obvious Artistry and we are not alone. Tyler Childers has docked up  7,251,819 views for White House Road-Vinyl sessions and Colton Wall is at a very respectable 2,113,136 views for his Brewery Sessions-“Sleeping on the Blacktop” video.   

    Some friends and family have the audacity to ask, how could you like Yo-Yo Ma, Bill Withers, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Leilani Wolfgramm, Little Stranger, the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Tift Merritt, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Tyler Childers?  If you find yourself poised to ask the same, do me the favor of listening to these tracks first and tell me that this is not Great American music just like Bill Withers, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, et al.    A long time ago,  a wise teacher counseled me to listen to music with Beginner’s mind, rather than expert’s mind (1)

    Tyler is a great songwriter.  Prolific similar to another ALT country singer songwriter we all know well from Jacksonville, NC.  Feathured Indians is a great love song by any measure.  Listen to this track with your heart open to its simple beauty.

    (1) Shunryu Suzuki, in his classic book, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, tells us that in the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s mind there are few. Certainly, this statement is a simple and true perspective. A beginner, not knowing much of anything about the subject at hand and forced to make decisions, may look at many possibilities. An expert, given a certain circumstance, will have thoughts pouring down a funnel of experience and/or education framing his or her thoughts.
