Inspired by [[BobDylan Bob Dylan's]] Nashville phase, this tends to be a mellower, "thinking person's" style of alt-country.

Alt-country was pioneered by folk- and punk- influenced singer-songwriters like Lyle Lovett and John Prine in the mid-eighties. Other early pioneers of the sound were artists in an alt-rock subgenre called "Cowpunk", such as Music/MeatPuppets, Lone Justice and the British group The Mekons. This came to prominence in TheNineties, with artists like Music/SteveEarle, LucindaWilliams and Music/DwightYoakam and bands such as Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, and Music/{{Wilco}} (who quickly moved into more general AlternativeRock) and broke into the rock mainstream in the 2000s with the success of Drive-By Truckers, Music/HankWilliamsIII and Music/RyanAdams.
