Strangely, for a state where farming plays such a central role, we really don't have a big country scene. It seems that if a musician wants to dig into that rural, pastural part of their music psyche, in this state, they usually turn to folk or Americana.
But be as that may, a few souls still are ready to tread the country road. And in this episode, we featured 5 Iowa artists doing just that, ranging from alt country to modern country.
