I love music of all types mostly the old stuff. I spend a lot of time on YouTube, & Itunes searching for stuff I have never heard of before. Sometimes certain tunes give me that wow where did this person come from. This guy has been around for a long time. If you like a combination of Elvis & Roy Orbison I think you'll like this. If this thread gets enough attention I'll add more later.

I've heard him on Jimmy Buffet channel on Sirius Sat radio.

Yes, he's good.

He's good but needs to find his own style. Just my thoughts.

Thanks for sharing this. A great singer and a great song. I'm ready for you to post the next one! I spend a bit of time, each day, listening to songs on YouTube also. I was just a little guy when songs like this became my favorite thing to play,or maybe I should say play with...
on my mom's old portable record player. I was so fascinated with that piece of machinery!!

Heart Shaped World is one of my favourite albums. Anyone remember the song Wicked Game? He has been around for a long time and has a great voice.

Here is a young lady I started listening to. She is one of the very few that tries to keep the traditional country alive & has a down to earth sweet personality.  I also follow her on Face Book she actually takes the time to follow up on your posts.

The vid with the accordion reminded me of the Texas Tornadoes. Doug Sahm was always one of my favorites, and when you throw in the rest of them, its was a case of "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts". It was the Tex/ Mex version of the Traveling Willberrys"

The first I heard Chris was on a tribute show right after Johnny Cash's passing. He did a respectful version of "I Guess Things Happen That Way", one of my favorite JC tunes. He's got a great voice.

 

Thanks for the vids! I dig them and will have to look up Teea on FB also. I have a bit of a liking for the women country singers that try to do things more traditional than the country-pop, punk, hip-hop, grunge style of nowadays--well the guys as well!

 

I follow a couple young-uns on FB that are great listening in my opinion too, I bought a few songs by a girl named "Stormy Montana" and just ran across a very young lady named Emi Sunshine. Don't let the names of these two fool you into thinking "really???". It just so happens both go by their first and middle real names.

 

Then, last Friday night I was watching an old "Herman's Hermit's" vid--- yeah I confess, I liked a lot of their stuff as a kid, and an unprofessional vid of a woman named "Natalie Noone" came up.  Turns out she's Peter Noone's or "Herman's" daughter and is trying to make a go of it in Nashville. She's on FB also. Couldn't find any pro vids of her. I would call her closer to a traditional "folk" singer/songwriter than country but a great talent.

 

This old computer and my ability limits posting videos but I could probably do some links to websites when I have more time.

 

Thanks---DAC

I recently found this instrumental with a Korean Guitar called a Gayageum. Hope you enjoy.

Wow---that's sorta Korean Rockabilly or somethin'! I can dig that! I've never listened to much overseas music besides British Invasion stuff but that was really cool.

 

I still don't have the means or smarts to post videos but last July Loree and I went to Denver to visit my sisters. It just so happened that Carlene Carter, daughter of June Carter and Carl Smith was playing at bar over on the east side. I had bought her new digital CD entitled "Carter Girl" the previous spring and had liked her music for years. It was a great show, and she is carrying on the Carter Family tradition and is an awesome autoharp player just like her Grandma Mabel and Mom June!

 

Also, by coincidence my wife saw that Herman's Hermits was going to be in Deadwood, SD mid December after I posted above. We went and for 68 years old, Peter Noone it still giving it everything on stage too. We had a lot of fun and had a couple days of decent weather too to top it off.

 

Here's a couple pics of Carlene's show and Hermits show. Camera went on the blink during the HH show so that's all I got..

Thanks for the vids, I like listening to them all.  They are definitely MUCH better with the axe than I am.
