Exploring the outlaw branch of American country music, David Allan Coe is #12 in a look by film star Dennis Hopper at the dozen most badass performers. That same dozen are some of the top-selling performers with careers enduring unimaginable travails. They are the proven goods, the real freaking McCoy.

This one's long at nearly 43 minutes, not all that great fidelity, but riddled with terrific quotes tying together a magnificent look at a global phenomenon.

I really like Trace Adkins' voice but his songs/videos are shallow (for me). Even though I'd love to explore more modern country music, the best story-telling is in the "earlier" songs, at least that's how I feel :)

I saw her in Las Vegas about 25 years ago and she is a very talented lady. She is smart also. Made her money and went to the house.

Anybody who can play like she does --- singer or not --- deserves a very loud round of applause. All this talk about early performers rouses the true history of what was once called Country & Western, enveloping Western Swing with people like Bob Wills (royalty!) or the very early superstars of true rock-solid country, Maybelle Carter and her daughters.

This is a song I hope every last one of us holds dear to our hearts.

Recorded in 1927, a full 90 years ago, using primitive acoustic microphones which meant EVERYBODY had to play loud to be heard at all. Imagine the strain on Maybelle playing her 1926 guitar for all it was worth....

You probably should have titled this "What Country music are you Listening to?"

Ever hear of Albert Lee? Here he is with Vince Gill.
