How about what music are you listening to these days? I need something new in my collection, anybody have something they've heard recently that might fit that bill?

My latest group that really grabbed my attention was about 2 years ago with the Turnpike Troubadours. I like good musicians, songwriting, etc...........music based on inspiration more than popularity. I have about 4,000 songs on my iPod and I need something new!

Help me people, share what you like that might fit my bill or even anything that won't but you are into these days.

OP, Troubadours are awesome. I personally like their older albums a little more than the newest one. A few others in that Red Dirt/Texas/Alt Country genre - Stragglers, of course. Ryan Bingham, James McMurtry and Son Volt (and their progenitor, Uncle Tupelo). You mentioned REK and Steve Earle. Gram Parsons/Byrds/Flying Burrito Brothers is a must and I like the Sir Douglas Quintet/Texas Tornados/Doug Sahm stuff too. Calexico is pretty cool as well.

I just downloaded the new Old Crow Medicine Show and Pert Near Sandstone albums and am looking forward to Trampled By Turtles' new one next week. Those are more in the bluegrass genre.

Wrinkle Neck Mules is another in the alt-country/america style. They're a little more under the radar, but they are really good, IMO.

Lately, been listening to lots of Queens of the Stone Age (stoner rock), Mastodon (metal) and Freddie Gibbs (rap).
FIFY

I like QOTSA too lol.

Lately been listening to a lot of Eisley (indie), The Decemberists (indie folky), Old Crow Medicine Show, and just shuffling through my classic rock and 80's hair metal.

Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen, Roger Creager, The Band, Levon Helm, Thin Lizzy.
I love Ray Wylie Hubbard music but mostly if his tunes are played by someone else, almost anybody else. If I were a songwriter of his stature, I would sound like RWH :).

Levon Helm AND The Band would be on my Top 5 list of music I'd have to have on my iPod if I could only have 5 artists, mainly because I'd argue I get a 2 fer 1!

That would be a pretty cool band name also. Named, of course, for what happens to the LA Angels' slugger, Mike Trout, after he spends too long in the pool.

In all seriousness, I've lived a pretty sheltered life so when I've shared the WNM band name with others I've always hoped it wasn't a euphemism for something :)

Sweet.

There's a pretty cool group of those sorts of bands from Minnesota that I've learned about since living up in this area. Trampled By Turtles (who I mentioned earlier), Charlie Parr, and Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank are a couple others you might enjoy in that bluegrass/alt-country/americana genre.
