I realize that everyone that reads this post will have different taste in music, and will not find my taste to their liking. I still though, would like to share some of my favorite bands and songs. It should be said, that I have been accused of liking "sleepy songs" so if your in to upbeat stuff this might be where you want to hop off.
Dave Matthews Band - With out a doubt, my all time favorite their live stuff is awesome
And long those same lines - Wide Spread Panic - has to be one of the best jam bands that ever released live albums from Athens, Huntsville, and Valdosta, which are all solid.
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit - This guy got his start with the Drive By Truckers and is really a great artist. "Alabama Pines" and "The Last Song That I Will Write" are two of his best works
Old Crow Medicine Show - A dear friend from
Son Volt - This is an very good band that apparently didn't make it. I think they started our as Uncle Tupelo and split into Wilco and Son Volt. Check out the "Trace" album, it has some good stuff
Robert Earl Keen - Enough said
Cross Canadian Ragweed - These guys just broke up, but Cody Canada is still making some good music. If you don't know these guys I would recommend starting with one of their live cuts
These are just a few. If this post is well received by you guys I will get into music a little deeper sometime.
