Who Are the Greatest Country Music Artists Everyone Should Have In Their Collection?

In partnership with the new fiction publishing platform Liberty Island, PJ Lifestyle is going to begin promoting and co-hosting a series of debates and discussions about popular culture. The goal is to figure out what works and what doesn’t so that in the future we can promote and create better fiction and culture of our own. These are public brainstorming sessions for writers and culture advocates interested in developing a more vibrant popular culture. You’re invited to submit your answers to any of these questions — or a related one of your own! — that interests you:

A) in the comments

B) Via email to PJ Lifestyle editor Dave Swindle.

C) at your blog, then let us know in the comments or via email. 

The most interesting answers may be linked, crossposted, or published at PJ Lifestyle. Also check out the previous weeks’ writing prompts: 5 Geek Questions To Provoke Debates About the Future of Sci-Fi and Fantasy5 Controversial Questions To Inspire Spirited Debates About Music.

Updated: An email received from Jim M.:

I'm not writing to criticize. Those are some fine artist (videos/songs) that were included in the post. All worthy of inclusion.

I only thought I'd write to mention a very dark horse, Workingman's Dead by the Grateful Dead.

Some of the finest bluegrass south, north, or west of the Mason-Dixon.

And I'm neither a Deadhead nor a big Country music guy.
