My Kind of Country

Country music from a fan's point of view since 2008


Welcome to the My Kind Of Country blog. Here, you will find reviews, editorials, and discussions about the country music we love : our kind of country. The idea is simple: rather than write lots of negative reviews about the new music that’s coming out – because let’s face it, much of what comes out of Nashville and your country radio dial is crap – we are going to write about the music we love: the music that moves us, drives us, and makes us laugh and cry; the music that touches us. Not that we will spend our time writing about a select group of artists that are among our favorites. To the contrary, we intend to post about the music we love and tell you why we love it, and of course, how we think it could be improved upon.

After your visit, we want you to  feel like you learned something about country music and were entertained in the process.  Most of all, we want you to see country music from our perspectives, the listeners and the lifetime fans of the music who have devoted our free time to spreading the word about the music we love. So we present you with our kind of country in the hopes that it, too, will become your kind of country.

Check out the Introductions page to learn more about the writers. We hope you enjoy our little blog – and we hope you keep coming back.

    Interesting stuff. I’m enjoying this. Is there a way you could get involved with my website? I am located in Austin and I keep up with the local and national Country music scene.

    Hey guys. If there’s anything you want me to change on the banner, just mail me. Ask Erik for my mail and i’ll see to change whatever is lacking in the banner. It would be great if you want me to design other stuff.

    I just found your website and wanted to thank you for acknowledging not only well known artists who are recording “my kind of country,” but for your interest in those artists who are off Nashville’s radar but are making some great music and many of whom are well known in Europe, Scandinavia and other countries. I do two radio shows that are a mix of new and old, All Things Country (internet) for Heartland Public Radio on HPR1,, and Twang, a live show for KCSN, 88.5fm in Northridge, CA (Los Angeles area), All Things Country first plays on Saturdays and repeats 3 times in the subsequent week. Twang is on from 11am-2pm in California and the station streams on the internet. Here’s a sample of who you’ll hear on both shows:

    Dale Watson, Miss Leslie, Liz Talley, Dallas Wayne, Robbie Fulks, Amber Digby, Justin Trevino, Tony Booth, Jake Hooker, Becky Hobbs, Gal Holiday & The Honky Tonk Revue, Billy Keeble, Teea Goans, Roger Wallace, Li’l Mo & The Monicats, various Western Swing groups and many others. And we take requests on both shows!

    Keep it real, everyone!

    I have resurrected both of them and plan on to be the new indie source only while cashbox remains main stream. our charts are so accurate now. we take no payola and the staff of both mags take no salary, just the love of music, so corruption can never happen again.

    Have you ever been touched by a song? The kind of song that makes you thrust your fist high in the air with exuberance or tap your toes on the ground. What about the kind of song that makes you wipe that lone tear from the corner of your eye? Music should make you feel some kind of way. Music is inspirational. Music is healing. Music is powerful.

    The music business is stocked full with talented artists. And there are probably tens of thousands of unknowns trying to break into the business. Tune into any number of reality shows on TV and you’ll see a bunch of kids with dreams and a guitar trying to strum and croon their way to Hollywood. Some are very good and some…well.

    Then there are those who are exceptionally talented, the ones who put in the hard work day after day for years to hone their craft. They write their own material and they build up a fan base by performing every chance they get. Not only do they have the gifts to inspire, they have the drive to succeed. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Cody Webb.

    In 2011, Cody released his first single, “4 Years Into 5” to critical acclaim. Since then he’s recorded three solid CDs. His third offering “I Ain’t No Quitter” not only sums up Cody’s never quit attitude it also delivered his most popular track to date “Mudd Bogg”. The single rose quickly up the charts and firmly established Cody as a rising star.

    Still the question remains; who is Cody Webb? Just take a listen to his music and it’s easy to tell that Cody is country music through and through. There’s no pretense with Cody. His sincerity and love for his country roots are front and center in his verses. Cody weaves genuine tales of love, making an honest wage, and having a whole lot of good fun. He loves tall trucks, cold beer, and southern girls.

    Cody is country and he knows it
