From Somalia to Missouri, we have comrades worldwide. Tonight, I present to you Porter Wagoner, a country legend and member of the Grand Ole Opry. Porter just turned 80 so what's he do?
That is one SWEET jacket!
He releases an album that might be the best country album of the year. Teaming with Marty Stuart, Porter plays your momma's and poppy's country music. Take a listen to the following from his newest, Wagonmaster, and relish that some country music does indeed still come from Nashville.

Finally, here's a nod to the man himself from one of my favorites, The Drive-By Truckers. Check out this live track from an October 2006 show in Bloomington.
