Playlist of the week: Today's top country music — that's actually country music

We skipped the bro-country beats and snap tracks to find something that sounds like, well, country music. This playlist features big-names like Sturgill Simpson and Tyler Childers, in addition to up-and-coming acts such as Zach Bryan and Drayton Farley. Let these songs make you feel like you’re somewhere in Texas listening to Flatland Cavalry and Bill and the Belles or near the Appalachians hearing Childers and Farley. This a small taste of what modern country music has to offer: 

“Shamrock” — Sturgill Simpson

“Cowpoke”  — Colter Wall 

“Hour on the Hour” — Mike and the Moonpies

“Taking Back My Yesterday” — Bill and the Belles

“Canola Fields” — James McMurtry

“Tilt Your Chair Back” — Flatland Cavalry 

“Champagne For The Pain” — Midland

“I Need Your Love” — Charley Crockett

“American Dream (Hard Up)” — Drayton Farley

“Shenandoah Shakedown” — John R. Miller

“All Your’n” — Tyler Childers
