What’s the Opposite of Bro Country?

Ironically, I’ve been listening to less country music since moving to Texas. Mostly, I just haven’t been listening to the radio as much now that I have internet access in my apartment, but I was also getting really sick of the repetitiveness of modern country radio. It seemed like every other song (if not more than that) was a generically attractive white dude singing about a girl in cutoffs in his truck. I like some of those songs so don’t get me wrong, but I was a little bored. So I made you all (and myself) a list of some good girl country (some recent, some classic – some I know I’ve put on playlists before, but I don’t care.)

Takin’ Pill – Pistol Annies

Chris Isaak – Lydia Loveless

Truth no. 2 – Dixie Chicks

Sleeper Awake – Kelly Hogan 

(This one may not be a country song, but I don’t care. I needed to include Kelly Hogan…)

Looking Back Now – Maggie Rose

Biscuits – Kacey Musgraves 

The Blade – Ashley Monroe 

The Bug – Mary Chapin Carpenter

Stand Beside Me – Jo Dee Messina

I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden – Lynn Anderson

Rest in peace, Ms. Anderson.
