10 Modern Day Country Outlaws That Give You Hope For The Future

Outlaw country music and the glory days of Willie, Merle, Waylon and Cash may seem like they are far behind us.

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.
