Metal Meets Americana [VIDEOS]

Americana Metal

Growing up in North Texas you’re surrounded by two kinds of music, country and metal.

I’m still a fan of both and judging by the videos below I’m not the only one. These performers don’t have that ironic “I bought a Sabbath shirt at Hot Topic” crap, but appear to really be celebrating the unity of great music.

Drive-By Truckers – “Strutter” (Kiss)

Lucinda Williams – “It’s A Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock & Roll)” (AC/DC)

Ryan Adams – “Wasted Years” (Iron Maiden)

Hymn For Her – “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp” (Led Zeppelin)

Cyril Neville – “Working Man” (Rush)

and for fun….
