Dwight Yoakam's great stuff, actually. There's no denying that he's doing contemporary country music, but his music just feels authentic, where a lot of pop country doesn't at all. His album "Gone" is really worth checking out.
Dwight Yoakam is great because you can slip his albums in to a rockabilly playlist and none of your friends will know they're listening to country music.
And on the not completely country side, I really can't say enough about the Legendary Shack Shakers, or the Shakers side project, the Dirt Daubers. With one of the best frontmen I've ever seen and a lot of super high energy songs you won't get much more bang for your buck in a live venue. If you can find it, the singer J.D. produced a documentary a couple of years back called seven signs, and it features several other non-traditional country inspired acts, like the Pine Hill Haints, Slim Cessna Auto Club, and Scott Biram. Worth watching if you can find it.
