Hope you like it. The alternative country (however defined) genre seems to get a lot less attention these days, but definitely a lot of really quality stuff was released in the aughties.

These are nice. Any chance of your renewing Austin-tatious in the 90s or the Homage to Jo Carol Pierce?

Looks like part of my library. Thanks

Anonymous, JD, and Mark,

Quite welcome! And besides, it was a labor of love. :)

I re-posted all the Austin-tatious in the 90s cds and all the Jo Carol Pierce cds. Enjoy.

Thanks for compiling these volumes. Lots of great songs I'd never encountered before.

Quite welcome. The vast majority of the songs were ones I already was familiar with, but I did do a little research to discover some previously unknown (to me) artists/songs.
