One of my favourite alt country artists.

Still great today from his current album

He's pretty well known in certain circles particularly Texas and i'm sure a lot of knowledgable folks on here will have heard of him but hardly a household name so I hope this is the kind of thing you're looking for.

Not too well known but he was lead singer with the acclaimed but largely ignored BR5-49.None of their albums broke the country top 30 which was a great shame as they deserved better.Anyway here is a good one from Chucks debut solo album from a couple of years ago.

First 5 albums by The Derailers and the complete works of The Mavericks are must-have.

And of course, this guy

He's from a bluegrass background, but now he is making his way towards traditional country music just like his idols Keith Whitley and Ricky Skaggs...his name is Mo Pitney....check him out.

Wynn Stewart !!!

Here's Wynn circa 1959-60, on the Buck Owens Show, performing the classic "Wishful Thinking" :

His entire works were published years ago by Bear Family in a mammoth box-set, but his music is also available in more affordable collections.

Highly recommended for anyone with an slightest interest for country music.

Also, don't miss Wynn's official website, run by his daughter, Wren Stewart Tidwell :

Here is another singer.
He had everything to be a star the best songs to sing.
The songs became hits for other stars but not for Johnny Darrell.
