Country Is The New Indie

So, I saw that line in something I read on The Gobbler's Knob the other day and it got me to really thinking about what he meant. Is Country music really the new indie? I mean it really had me wondering what it meant. But, then I realized there's always been indie Country music acts...it's called "Alt-Country."

So, that being said lemme hip you to a new (to me) group called Blackbird Harmony. Yep, they are a local band and you may be hearing more about them in the future from me. But, DC9 had a great post about them in relation to their new album and a free tune called "Caution & Dispatch" from their new album called Hardwood Exits. I really like this song, it reminds me of a darker "Lyin' Eyes" by The Eagles.

But, back to the Country is the new indie stuff. What could be more indie than an 80's cover song? Well, treat yourself to Blackbird Harmony's version of "Hello" by Lionel Richie.
