  Welcome to papercuts.co.uk - Information on Alternative country music
Alternative country, also referred to as "Americana,;" "Cow-punk," "Y'alternative," "No Depression," and "Insurgent Country," is a catch-all term describing a diverse musical genre that combines forms of traditional country music, such as twang, swing, rockabilly,; and bluegrass,; with the ethos and sound of punk rock.
While a definition of "alt.country" may be difficult to pin down, what it is not remains clear: it is not the "Hot Country" music of commercial Nashville, which is seen as homogenous and lacking a sense of tradition.
Next are the "Traditionalists," those who have been in country music for years but whose talents and contributions tend to be ignored by "Hot Country." This includes artists like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Guy Clark, Merle Haggard, and Don Walser.
