best to stick with old school. Hank III is a real good time, the only sorta modern one of the bunch.
If you search for more modern music, I'd try to steer toward bluegrass. "All that pop country is just a bunch of fucking bullshit" Hank 3rd.
This. Hank III is awesome.
I'll add Tracy Lawrence to that list too. I've always loved his stuff.
If you want modern, pretty much stick to Jamey Johnson and Eric Church. I don't really consider ZBB to be country, but they're great in concert. Don't go expecting country though. They played a handful of stuff off the albums, but mainly did a bunch of jams with Robert Randolph and the Family Band. It was fucking awesome.
