#31- Rebels With a Cause: The Outlaws of Outlaw Country

Buckle up! In this much-anticipated episode, Scott, Karl, and Trent discuss outlaw country music.

Starting as a movement about freedom, authenticity, and rebellion, outlaw country is all about breaking the rules.

During the 1970s, Nashville’s country music stars had to fight for creative control of their songs. When Willie Nelson bucked the Nashville sound and made the pilgrimage to Austin, Texas, a new era of country outlaw was born.

Operated entirely outside the law of the country music establishment, this is the music of rowdys, degenerates, and hell-raisers. Scott says, “This show is more about the rednecks and outlaws that I grew up with— how they interpret this music and what it means to them.”
