Reminds Me Of My Childhood

I have been listening to some of the new Country music coming out lately: Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, and several others I can't remember right now, but the music they play could have easily been played by The Marshall Tucker Band, The Eagles, NRPS, Flying Burrito Brothers, and even the Grateful Dead in their more country moods of the early to mid 70's; I've even heard several songs (unfortunately I didn't catch the name of the bands) that have even gone a step further and could have been played by bands such as Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws, or even the Allman Brothers Band.  If you liked country-rock and Southern-Fried rock of the 70's, check out some of the C&W artists.  Of course this isn't the first country-rock revival, there was one in the late 80's to early 90's spearheaded by such artists as Steve Earl and Confederate Railroad.

The Eagles came out with a new album last year: "Out of Eden". Amazing lyrics; I still haven't decided whether or not I like the music, but this happens with to me astonishing regularity with "old favorites". <br />

One old fav who's lyrics and music I loved right away is John Fogerty's 2008 album "Revival". Strong anti Dubya lyrics with a slightly updated CCR sound. The song "Don't You Wish It Was True" is especially uplifting, much in the vein of Lennon's "Imagine".

I loved the Eagles when I was younger. I confess that I haven't listened to them in years.
