I just ordered Buddy Jewell's latest CD, which I've heard is great, and that got me going through my CDs to pick out my favorites.
Since I've been a huge fan of country music since I was about 5, I started there.
Most of these aren't major ones where they had all the bells and whistles, like Toby Keith and Brooks and Dunn, or some of the classics like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, but maybe some lesser known ones that I think are very well-done.
George Canyon – George Canyon
John Berry – Faces
The Roadhammers – The Roadhammers
Johnny Reid – Kicking Stones
Lisa Brokop – Hey Do You Know Me?
Ian Tyson – I Outgrew the Wagons
Prairie Oyster – I love pretty well all their stuff – esp. some of the early ones.
Terri Clark – Pain To Kill
The Mavericks – several – esp. Trampoline
Buddy Jewell – Buddy Jewell
john Arthur martinez – Lone Starry Night
And one of my all-time favorites – Joyce Martin's Diamonds on a Dusty Road – a Christian one but very Mary Chapin Carpenterish – I think it's her only solo CD and it was a departure from her other stuff with her family, but I just love it
