Been a "Die Hard" Rocker most of my life, but started getting into country 7-8 years ago! (...think it might b a midlife thing!)
Along with the "Classic guys already mentioned, here's a few I recommend for Good Shredding listening!
Mark Chestnutt; "Talking to Hank
", Come on In ( The Whiskey's Fine")
, "Bubba Shot The Jukebox
" Great Upbeat fun country!
Just about ANY Alan Jackson! I think his name is Ray Scott; "My Kinda Music
" Great song! (the song itself will provide a good list of songs!)
Big 'n' Rich have some really good stuff!
A few good "Truck Drivin'" songs,.. Garth Brooks; "Papa Loved Mama
", Randy Travis, "Highway Junkie
", Lee Ann Womack, "18 Wheels
", Jerry Reed; "East Bound and Down
Willie Nelson; "10 with a 2
", "Shotgun Willie
", "Worried Man
I'l check my playlists for some others,.. these were just off the top of my head! (Oh yeah,... Any good shit kicking' bluegrass banjo seems to work well for me when riding!!)
