I love rockabilly and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Neither one is alt country.

Agreed, Josh. Southern rock is a better moniker. (sp?)

@1 I believe the "Driveby Truckers" are alt-country, although I could be wrong. Just listen to KEXP on a Thursday or Friday between 6-9 and you're bound to hear some alt-country, and odds are they'll announce the fact that it's alt-country so you'll be sure.
