Just listen to God Bless this Town.Funny I moved out of this area when I was 18.Where I moved after 29 years they couldn't handle my wild Hillbilly Redneck ways so I left.

When I moved back here I was told I would fit right back in and wouldn't have any trouble because of Family and Friends in the area.I went back to the area I moved from for a visit,seems they still don't care for my style.

So here I am after 17 years here.Started going to Church everyone knows my past but they have forgave me as they are told couple months ago voted me in as Deacon.

Yes I'm Home where I will die and my ashes will be scattered in the river by the House where I was Baptized.

I listen to "Outlaw County" on Sirius/XM and my fondest wish is that Mojo Nixon and Shooter Jennings would get a station dedicated to them, so that I would never have to listen to either of them ever again.

Can't stand Mojo Nixon's on-air persona and it makes me turn the station every time I hear his voice. It's nice, I guess, that he is so enamored of drugs and alcohol and behaving badly in public, but I could live without hearing about it.

I'm a huge fan of alt-country - McMurtry (one of THE best songwriters), Keen, Alvin, Earle, Hubbard, Johnny Cash, old stuff from Haggard, Jones, Jennings, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams (the first, can't stand the other two) etc etc etc

I agree. Mojo annoys the hell out me. I quit listening.

As soon as I saw this topic I knew Copperhead Road would be mentioned. I'm surprised it wasn't higher up the list.

I know.

It used to be that GAC and CMT would run the outlaw or alt country later on at night. Good stuff. It seems to have vanished.

I suggest the OP turn off the radio, switch off CMT/GAC, and listen to the other side of country music-the sometimes gritty, sometimes irreverent, sometimes hellraising, and always authentic and heartfelt side. I submit my list of some of the best Outlaw Country songs:

Country Boy Can Survive - Hank Williams, Jr.

Choctaw Bingo - James McMurtry

Longhaired Redneck - David Allen Coe

Copperhead Road - Steve Earle

Conversation With the Devil - Ray Wylie Hubbard

We Can't Make It Here Anymore - James McMurtry

The Road Goes on Forever (And the Party Never Ends) - Robert Earl Keen

God's Gonna Cut You Down - Johnny Cash

The High Cost of Livin - Jamey Johnson

Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother - Ray Wylie Hubbard

Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Out of Hand - Waylon Jennings

Cocaine Blues - (Most famously covered by) Johnny Cash

Whiskey, Weed, and Women - Hank III

Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound - Hank Williams, Jr.

Long Haired Country Boy - Charlie Daniels Band

Family Tradition - Hank Williams, Jr.

Gunpowder and Lead - Miranda Lambert

Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash

Sunday Morning Comin Down - Kris Kristofferson

Caleb Meyer - Gillian Welch

Mama Tried - Merle Haggard

The Boys From Oklahoma - (Most famously covered by) Cross Canadian Ragweed

The Ballad of Uneasy Rider - Charlie Daniels Band
oh no, country songs about how tough and macho that southern men are, how they get drunk, and get into trouble, are not cliches at all.

"The Ballad of Uneasy Rider", sounds almost like some sort of parody or satire in a way.
Makes me think of those middle-aged, high-class, suburbia dudes who dish out $30,000 on a flashy Harley, and then lay it down.
