Try playing some Chris Knight. He is an amazing singer songwriter from KY.

Lately, I've been digging up some old [some REALLY old] song out of my memory bank and they've been a lot of fun. Granted, some of them I had to look up the words for, online, just to make sure. Either way, they're a lot of fun to play and get you a lot of "Wow, I forgot about that one."
The Year that Clayton Delaney Died [Tom T. Hall]
Saginaw Michigan [Lefty Frizell]
Third Rate Romance [Amazing Rythm Aces]
Sixteen Tons {Tennessee Erine Ford]
[You picked a Fine Time to Leve Me] Lucille, and..
Ruby [don't take your love to town] [made famous by Kenny Rodgers]
Dixie Land Delight [Alabama] [not TOO old but mostly forgotten none-the-less]
Sometimes I go to Cowpie or Cowboy Song Lyrics and browse through the old time artists and let the song titles jog my memory.

'Hotel California' (The Eagles). This one provides good practice for barre chords and changes to open chords.

'Tears In Heaven' (Eric Clapton). This one provides good practice for slides on the upper frets of the treble strings.

'Behind Blue Eyes'

"Knocking On Heaven's Door'

Runner up:

'House of the Rising Sun' (my version)
This is country?

That would be heavy metal.

I'm sure I will repeat some but here are the 5 favorite country songs on my set-list:

Poncho and Lefty (most folks recognize it because of Willie/Haggard version but it's still a singer/songwriter tune, to which I like to stay true whenever I can)

Sunday Morning Coming Down - (Kristofferson) Same thing here, Cash made it popular.

Me and Bobby McGee (Kristofferson version obviously - I mean I love JJ but I could never pull it off and Kris' version is very country.

I'm Still a Guy - Brad Paisly (he is about the only contemporary Top40 country artist I listen to and I love his songwriting / selection)

Big Iron - Marty Robins (My version is patterned after the Johnny Cash American Recordings version, which I like better than Marty's)

Others of note - Folsom Prison Blues, He Stopped Loving Her Today, Desperado (enough country folks have covered it to qualify I think)

here's a nice slow song sung by Patty Loveless - Someday I Will Lead The Parade

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCDSpglGgsU

does it sound like some other well known country-ish/gospel-ish song to anyone out there?

cannot think of the song and it's driving me nuts...
