Thread Name: Where is that singer coming from?
Subject: RE: Where is that singer coming from?
With a very few exceptions, every male country singer today comes from Jimmie Rodgers, either through Hank Williams or Lefty Frizzell.

Willie's always ploughed his own field, but in the early days was influenced by his pal, Faron.

Dwight Yoakam comes from Buck Owens, plain & simple.

Lyle Lovett is a one-off.
