Chapter 96: Against The Wind

Country rock

Country always trends more conservative than the US music landscape at large, and since rock sounds have moved further from the cutting edge, they’ve found a new home on country radio. Guys like Brad Paisley are more credible rock stars than Twenty One Pilots. But in the 60s and 70s, long-haired hippies playing these chicken-fried songs still made strange bedfellows. It’s terrific fun how hard Creedence commits on songs like “Down On The Corner”, and the country textures Gram Parsons brings to “Hickory Wind” are touchingly sincere.
