Were you wondering what to do this weekend ? Tennis too dull, no gigs to go to, looking like it might rain on the BBQ ? Fear not, Rolling Stone Country have done us all a great service in producing a weekend full of arguments in the form of their list of 100 Greatest Country Artists Link. Yup, all your favourites are there…actually they aren’t. The colossi who bestride the Americana world are given their due…actually they aren’t. Townes – where would you put Townes ? Number 83? Just one better than Steve Earle, just one worse than Lynn Anderson? It gets better. Alison Kraus? Right there at 94….and Flatt and Scruggs just getting into the top 30?
This is madness. So, enjoy the list, enjoy the heated debates, and we’ll see you all – or should that be we’ll see y’all? – next week.
