    Whiskeytown was great. His first couple of solo albums were pretty good I thought. Then he seemed to lose his way. I can't listen to him anymore.

    really? I don't see that at all ryan adams is much more akin to country with some rock sprinkled in while mumford and sons have a more polished folk sound to them. I love Ryan Adams and find mumford and sons to be very mediocre.

    I don't know Mumford and Sons from Sanford and Son. I was just saying that that bit of phrasing reminded me of what I went through with Adams.

    Can I get some help here? Can you think of any alt-country covers of punk songs OR hair metal songs that are not done in TOO jokey of a manner (do not include Hayseed Dixie) and are not bluegrass-ish covers (Bad Livers, the Gourds).

    Thanks

    Was there a Punk Goes Country edition? I know they had Punk Goes Acoustic and Punk Goes Pop.

    There are plenty examples of punk bands doing country songs (MFATGG, et al), but I am looking for the other way around...

    I'm late to this.

    Kelly Willis does a cover of The Replacements' "They're Blind" that is not in the least bit jokey. It's absolutely beautiful in my opinion. I don't know if this fits your definition or not, since by the time of "They're Blind" the Replacements weren't really a punk band anymore.

    and then there's Johnny Cash's covers of NIN and Depeche Mode, but that's even further from your definition.

    Does George Jones covering Elvis Costello count?

    Rhett Miller of the Old 97's has been known to cover the Pixies during encores...


    I have some Uncle Tupelo bootlegs with them covering the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog" -- not sure if this helps, seeing as how it's just a straight cover, but when I came across this video, I had to post it. The awesomeness cannot be denied. Uncle Tupelo with Teenage Fanclub covering the Stooges. Goddamn.

    Oh, and Steve Earle has an album of covers (I think it's called Sidetracks?) that has a cover of Nirvana's "Breed".

    Ooh yes - those Steve Earle covers are exactly what I was talking about... anything in that vein, although the nirvana cover is pretty straight-ahead

    We are recording a song for a compilation and we asked a guy to come in and sit in with us and play pedal steel. Here is some video from that session, mostly of him becoming familiar with the song.

    We are playing with the Futurebirds again next week. They have released a full length album since my last post, and I am going to go ahead and full heartedly recommend you listen to it now:

    back on the alt country covers -- i can't find it on youtube but look for Reckless Kelly's cover of "You Shook Me All Night Long", it's pretty cool.

    I keep checking their site with no luck. I saw them at Coach but didn't appreciate them nearly as much as I would now. I reeeeeally want to go to Nashville to see them on NYE. That'd be incredible.
