Ok, I am chiming in on this one. I love me some Judas Priest, Zakk Wylde, KISS (yeah,that's right), Eagles, ZZ, even New Orleans Jazz(great Pandora station,if you like this kinda' stuff). All over the board. But right now, 4th of July tradition, nothin' better than Ray Charles belting out "America the Beautiful". The best! One of the last songs my dad and I listened to before he passed away. Sentimental, at the least. Happy 4th everyone!
For the 4th, its Woody Guthrie. Cheers.
A lot of really great artists named so far that i also listen to (Krauss, Dylan, DBT, Young, etc.). A couple of great bands i enjoy in the same vein as DBT (alt country?) would be Lucero and Glossary*. For the more mellow times it would be Rocky Votolato or Laura Gibson. Cotton Jones has a nice modern psychedelic/folk hybrid sound. And Damien Jurado covers a huge range of moods and genres depending on which album you're listening to. Also, The Oh Hellos* are wonderful. They're a brother and sister from Austin and some of the nicest people. I've actually had the pleasure of giving some of these artists a bottle of whiskey when they came through town as a thanks for their great music that makes my own whiskey time even more enjoyable.

Whiskey is man's attempt at Heaven.
Nobody mentioned good old vintage Sinatra
I like some classic country like Cash, Waylon, Kristoferson, and Nelson.
