Nashville society was as rigid as any blue-blooded country club, and those with long hair or bohemian pastimes (like Willie) got shoved to the fringes. Rather than being cowed, these “outlaws” reveled in their outsider status, as Waylon Jennings does in his irony-filled “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way.” Famed rock nonconformist Neil Young embraced Willie both politically [i]and[/i] musically, as you can see in the Farm Aid concerts and hear in “Are You Ready for the Country,” one of country rock’s formative tracks, complete with Neil’s Nelson-like vocal quaver. And they don’t make ’em much further outside the mainstream than singer and mystery novelist Kinky Friedman, whose “Sold American” casts a jaded eye on the rubbish heap where our former stars go to fade away. Our Similar Sounds proves you don’t [i]have[/i] to be an outlaw to sound like Willie — heck, you don’t even have to be a [i]man[/i].
