Favorite C&W Artists.

For classic country, it's a toss up between Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard :) I also love Tom T. Hall. His songs are fun sing-a-longs.

For modern country, I've recently developed an infatuation with Keith Urban :D

Oh and this just reminded me, the very first album (it was a cassette tape actually) that I remember buying with my own money was the "Poncho and Lefty" album that Merle and Willie Nelson did. I was only about 7 years old but I so loved that song. I think I still have that tape. lol I heard the song the other day on the radio and had to stop what I was doing and just listen. :)

Chuck Wagon and the Wheels.
The Dusty Chaps.

Only those who lived in Tucson in the late 70's and early 80's would be familiar with them; these were local country rock bands which had big followings locally at that time.

Jerry Jeff Walker.

He did a song called Honky Tonk Music which was one of the Dusty Chaps original tunes.

Did Jerry Jeff Walker to "Mr. Bojangles"?
Yes, he wrote the song; I think while he was in a New Orleans jail.

The version that was the big hit was done by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
