 Country-Rock Roots
As the 70s progressed, the Eagles would migrate more towards commercial rock, and by the release of "Hotel California" in 1976, most of their country influences were now gone, as were original members Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon.
As mainstream country music imploded into pop-country schmaltz after the Urban Cowboy era, a new group of artists would put a little rock in their country, and create a whole new genre of exciting rock-influenced country music.
So the responsibility has fallen to independent artists, to explore the fertile territory between country and rock and roll music, and put out records which don't necessarily fit neatly into a single established format, but are interesting and entertaining for that very reason.

 Country rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Country rock is a musical genre formed from the fusion of rock and roll with country music.
While such cross-pollination has occurred throughout the history of both genres, the term is usually used to refer to the wave of groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s who began to record country flavored records, including Neil Young, The Byrds, Gram Parsons and Bob Dylan with The Band.
A similar genre, southern rock, often fuses country rock and blues rock.

Under the direction of new member Gram Parsons, the Byrds tackled country music on their 1968 album =Sweetheart of the Rodeo.= Parsons proved to be the guiding force in country-rock, as his solo records and albums with the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Byrds provided the blueprint for country-rock.
The Flying Burrito Brothers helped forge the connection between rock and country, and with their 1969 debut album, The Gilded Palace of Sin, they virtually invented the blueprint for country-rock.
Rock's longest, strangest trip, the Grateful Dead were the psychedelic era's most beloved musical ambassadors as well as its most enduring survivors, spreading their message of peace, love, and mind-expansion across the globe throughout the better part of three decades.

 Country Music Article - Gram Parsons: the father of country rock lives again, July 1999
The time was the mid-1960's and the early 1970's, when country music and things that twang took a back seat to druggy psychedelia and feel-good pop.
Take it from Paul Kremen, co-producer of the new 13-song tribute "Return of the Grievous Angel" disc, who waited earnestly between sets at a reunion of Emmylou Harris and her Hot Band in 1995 and was struck by how a tape of Wilco's first album played during the intermission reminded him of the Parsons sound.
He appeared hellbent on tearing down the walls between country and rock, sensing an innate connection between songs from the Opry and straight-from-the-soul R&B. His success can't be measured by his own efforts, but by the way others tried to emulate him and still do.
