You gotta like a guy that bucks the trend of what country stars should look like.
We went back to CMT Edge for another song and this time we looked at one from Austin Lucas. There is a great line in that interview where Austin talks about how traditional country music is perhaps the best and most pure form of American music.
Here is an acoustic version of the song.
Alone In Memphis – Austin Lucas
I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s a sucker for a classic country song played with just an acoustic guitar. Like Austin said, that is country music in the most pure, American form. Just an artist and their guitar singing their heart out for anyone that will listen.
Yesterday we looked at a song that made you feel like you were back in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s where there were jukeboxes in every bar. Everyone was there to get away from something. Everyone was there to find a release and songs like this would play on those small vinyls and really make people feel like they were alone in the world.
This is the kind of country music that I really like. I know it’s on the “edge” of country music today, but it’s still the most traditional sounding country music out there.
(I know my buddy Elwood will like this one).
Give it another listen and let us know what you think.
