Good music needs to be heard! We love hearing the legacy Bob Wills, Hank, Waylon, Lefty, and others have left in the voices, and songwriting craftsmanship of today's up, and comers.
It is truly about the music, and moving forward in a fresh, authentic, and inspiring way. We believe authenticity can be defined in a phrase coined by noted songwriter Harlan Howard "Three chords, and the truth".. Our aim is to bridge the old with the new, and on these pages, you will find interesting stories about the golden years of honky tonk music. Additionally, we share our passion concerning artists that are holding the torch high for traditional forms of country music right now.
We also offer a variety of ways to engage on a more meaningful level, and support our mission to keep traditional country music alive. Everything from becoming part of our music listening panel to advertising your business with us can be found right here.
We also offer unique gifts for that special someone in your life here. There is still some amazing country music to be heard. We hope we can bring more to you, and maybe learn a thing or two along the way. Also don't forget to check out our show for some amazing artists on #StoneColdCountry Mondays from 12-2:30 PM (EST). It also re-airs on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7-9:30 PM (EST).
With so many choices in how we all discover music it might be tempting to abandon our local radio stations. Yes, I do know that much of...
The New Traditionalists Special Series
We are so proud of the amazing talent we've showcased in our New Traditionalists podcast series! In 2020 we decided to hand pick six artists 25 years old, and younger who are keeping it country. The response to this series has been unprecedented by you the fans of traditional country music.
We've had a blast presenting this feature as traditional country is near, and dear to our hearts. Many have requested that this feature continue. We are currently considering doing so, and will keep you posted. Meanwhile, we have a real treat for y'all. You can now listen to all the New Traditionalists installments right here.
Here you will find the latest episode of our podcast streaming on Pandora, Spotify, ITunes, Sound Cloud, and all major platforms. Our primary objective is to share incredible talent that are making inroads into country music without forgetting the hardcore troubadours of yesteryear. We present a new monthly feature in the first week of each month. For the month of September, it is our pleasure to present the stone cold country sounds of Jamie Richards! Hot off of the heels of his latest No. 1 Twang, Jamie took us wayback to the beginning when he was singing in big tent revivals with his momma to his time at RCA, and Curb Records in Nashville.
Jamie has written with some of the very best like Dean Dillon, and Jim Rushing! His songs have been recorded by Hal Ketchum, Ken Mellons, and Kevin Fowler. But for us it's the curl in his voice so reminiscent of Lefty that has swept us away.. It's no wonder that he counts Merle Haggard as his greatest influence.. We hear it.. The world is already catching on to what Texans have known for over ten years now, that Jamie Richards is the real deal. He's performed in Spain,France, and Mexico where his fondness for Dos Equis Beer was established. :)
Check out Part One, and Two of our reflective walk through Jamie's career. Once you do, you'll understand why AllMusic says Jamie is a Staunch MusicTraditionalist. With nine number ones under his belt, Jamie's music hasn't changed, it's just getting even better.
