Have to make my first blog entry about the best thread going, started by a gentleman named RockFlorida from, well, Florida, and It has grown to over a hundred pages in a very short period of time. An incredibley diverse and knowledgeable group of music lovers have contributed regularly and we've all found out about a ton of artists with whom we were unfamiliar or simply had neglected for too long. I've decided this blog might be the best place to keep track of these amazing musicians so I can look them up later. You can find this thread - What Are You Listening To? - by clicking on my messages page on my profile. I recommend that you start from the beginning, but I certainly understand if you want to go straight to the last page
Here is a short list of recommended musicians from this thread: Son Volt, Drive-by Truckers, Two Cow Garage, Deadstring Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Bruce Cockburn, Blind Albert, the Del Fuegos, the Trailer Park Troubadours, Antsy McClain, Southern Culture on the Skids, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, and many more. I've left off all the major stars who this group has listened to and discussed at length.
In addition, there are many sites where you can find streaming music, live shows, free downloads, etc. that are brought up. Some of those are yeproc.com, archive.org, wolfgangsvault.com, emusic.com, last.fm, and of course, youtube. This is a sports site, and everyone on this thread is a pretty avid sports fan, but music is at the forefront here and we've had nothing but a great time on this thread.
I don't know exactly how this blog works, so if you can comment on it with other music suggestions, or if you're a regular WAYLT (What Are You Listening To?) contributor, and want to add to the many suggestions I've missed and can't remember, please do so.
Enjoy The Ride!
