Best Of MP3.com 2011: Vol. 4

The Spotlight

These days, country music can mean a whole lot of things. It can mean the traditional croon and swoon style of Patsy Cline and Hank Williams (both of whom seem to pop up on everyone’s influence list, even the rock and rollers). “Country” can mean the thumping bass and frantic banjo of bluegrass, the gritty grimy guitar of Neil Young or a classic four chord homage to the working class hero. For this Best of MP3.com 2011 list, we offer 10 Kinds Of Country.
