    Hi, You could try some modern alternative/underground country which sounds more like the older country. You can find more artists like below by searching for alternative, americana, outlaw country, rockabilly/psychobilly, folk, and stuff like that on sites like youtube, reverbnation, lastfm, and pandora radio. This is by no means a complete list. Links below.

    1. Joey Allcorn - Alabama Chain Gang, 50 Years Too Late, Six Feet Down, This Ain't Montgomery feat Hank III, Graveyard Bound feat Lonesome Wyatt, Son Of A Ramblin' Man, (Graveyard Bound is country/metal mix.)
