One of the best "new" acts I've seen/heard in years is Uncle Earl
http://youtube.com/watch?v=lkTVwwbyKwc&feature=related
Their new disc was produced by John Paul Jones (yes, that John Paul Jones, I thought it was weird at first, too!)

Another fantastic "new" band is the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

There's NEW artists??  Shoot, I can't get past the old ones.  bigrin 

Actually, I have heard of some of those mentioned above.  Love the Carolina Chocolate Drops.  It's so cool to see some young folks playin that old stuff and keeping it alive.

He may be looking at a copy of the words.

Now, that isn't nice!  bigrin Just a struggling musician that knows how to use technology to his advantage.  He hasn't come across as narcissistic in any of the videos I've seen.

I never know what to make of country music. It's a pretty alien mood to me, unless they're being deliberately corny like Lefty Frisell or Junior Brown.

I've checked out most of the artist listed so far, Neko Case seems cool. I've realized how picky I am when it comes to singer/songwriters.

Berlin 58.... if you really like Tift Merrit, you should track down a copy of the duets CD she did with the Two Dollar Pistols.... probably the closest anyone has come to country music in the last few years.

Neko, to me, isn't as much of a traditional "singer songwriter", but she and her band really seem to move well as one unit.  I really like the dark feel of her band and how it's all heavily soaked in reverb.  Her lead gutiarist tends to use a nice 50's clean electric sound that reminds me of surf music mixed with a bit of Euro pop.  The more I listen to her music the more I like it.

Some of my favorite songs include:

Hold on, hold on
That teenage feeling
Soulful shade of blue
Lion's jaws
I wish I was the moon

et al

jeremy -- I might have mentioned him to you before, but I recommend you checking out Slaid Cleaves. He's an alt-country, singer-songwriter type.  Has a great voice and his songs are good.

Candyrat records has a great YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/candyrat) with some great musicians that I have seen mentioned on these boards as well as some younger folks.

I also like:
Laura Harley http://www.myspace.com/lauraharleymusic
Ferraby Lionhear http://www.myspace.com/ferrabylionheart
Andy Grammer http://www.myspace.com/andygrammer
Matthew Santos http://www.myspace.com/matthewsantos (Check out "Shadows in a Shoebox")

Many of you probably already know KT Tunstall, but she's relatively new to me:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIO2qpSsUTA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-K4CXvxNcw

Also there is Rodrigo y Gabriela, another group that that has been around for a while, but I recently learned about.

BTW... Happy New Year.
