Lydia Loveless

I like to think of Lydia Loveless as punk country.

“Longer” is from here 4th album Real.

And I’ve included one of her classics, “Steve Earle”, about a stalker, not the real Steve Earle.

Drive-By Truckers

There was a time when musicians were the voice of protest, speaking out against war, racism and inequality.

So rare these days.

Yet here is a southern alternative country band, Drive-By Truckers, that I would never have thought would be on this website with one of the most profound songs of the year.

Perhaps they can inspire other artists to speak up.
