However, there are a few artists out there that are still carrying that outlaw spirit into the studio and onto the stage. Artists who made their reputations by doing things their own way. While many of them might laugh at the idea of being compared to the legends, there is no denying their rough around the edges style and “no bullsh*t” attitudes towards making great country music.
