About this playlist

People often think of country music as one of the most straightforward, even straitlaced styles around. But if you're willing to scratch below the surface just a tad, you'll begin to uncover all kinds of kooky, creepy corners of the country universe. There's a deliciously dark underbelly to country music that you probably won't be hearing on the radio alongside the latest Music City hits anytime soon -- a realm where singers freely explore their own obsessions without any regard for Nashville niceties. Get set for the feral, frantic, foul-mouthed outpourings of country's heir apparent, Hank Williams III; the cracked, comedic country deconstructions of "outsider artist" The Legendary Stardust Cowboy; and plenty more. Welcome to the world of weird country, from the slightly strange to the boldly bizarre.
