Leaning a bit more toward the rock side, Alt-Country artists consist of some of American music’s biggest names, like Wilco, Band of Horses, My Morning Jacket, The Avett Brothers, and Ryan Adams, while Americana artists nod toward classic country, like Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Lucinda Williams, The Lone Bellow, and First Aid Kit. Mix them in with some classics like Dylan, The Band, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, and Merle Haggard, and you have the recipe for “Americanarama.”

Mike Gioscia is a Boston radio veteran on the South Shore who discovered Alt-Country while working at WFNX in the 90’s. He quickly devoured bands like Uncle Tupelo, The Jayhawks, and Flying Burrito Brothers, and names Wilco as his favorite band of the last decade.
