From the following Wiki, a whole lot of people listen to it, they just maybe didn't know it had a name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Dirt_(music)

Remember Bluegrass ("high lonesome") was a reaction to the then-popular strains of Country in the '40's and '50's, harkening back to the '20's and '30's.

Some tunes--they share common themes and concerns as other Country but rougher, rawer. These tunes were picked at random. Enjoy!
