We Pledge Allegiance to Real Country Music
Red Dirt America with Chuck Taylor

Red Dirt America with Chuck Taylor

Country music today has gotten away from it's roots. Mainstream country music has hand claps, click tracks, auto tuning and rap beats. But down in Texas in the early 2000's the Texas music movement started to change things around. At the same time bands like Cross Canadian Ragweed and The Great Divide were bringing their sound from nearby Oklahoma into the Texas Scene. So call it Texas music, call it Red Dirt, hell call it Americana, we call it OKOM (Our Kind Of Music) The Red Dirt America podcast explores real country music and artists that are the antithesis of mainstream country music.
