    CCR did put on a great show! they are no longer putting out albums or touring as a band, but they are doing their own things now. Don't forget Stoney LaRue, he is awesome!

    Yes, they do!

    You named some good ones. Very underrated, in my opinion.

    Try Reckless Kelly, Mickey and the Motorcars, The Bottle Rockets, Cory Morrow, Eli Young Band, Lost Immigrants, Randy Rogers Band, Drive-By Truckers, Turnpike Troubadours just to name a few. There are a ton of them, they are all good.

    :cool:

    And yes, CCR, the old and new, was/are great!

    A guy I used to work with a few years back turned me on to Casey Donahew and CCR. I think it's good stuff just never ever hear it on he radio.

    Of those listed, Reckless Kelly has had some radio play over the years, but not much. Their 2008 album Bulletproof may had made the album charts, but I don't recall. It made a splash via the internet though.

    The Bottle Rockets had a minor hit with the song "1000 Dollar Car" off the album The Brooklyn Side. Back when it came outin the mid 90s, some of my friends heard it on the radio but I never did.

    I've been digging the Turnpike Troubadours quite a bit lately, try the album Diamonds and Gasoline.

    I love this stuff.......

    Why is it the red dirt music hasn't really hit the radios much?

    Well, it doesn't have the "mass" appeal of the current style of pop/country, which would be the only terrestrial stations I think would play it.

    Also, I don't know if all of the bands I listed would fall into the "red dirt music" genre. I put them in the self titled genre of "white-trash country rock" or, probably most accurately, "bar bands" since they all seem like bands that you could walk into a random bar(read honky-tonk bar) and find.

    I forgot to mention Son Volt, Two Dollar Pistol, Whiskey Myers, Shooter Jennings, Uncle Tupelo and Kevin Fowler.

    For something a bit different but in the same overall "bar band" moniker, check out Drag The River out of Colorado.
