    Is Wilco alt country? Never thought of them in that way.

    I really like the Old 97's.

    I love alt country. I do not, however, particularly dig any of the bands you mentioned. I think calling them alt-country is a maybe a lil' bit of a stretch.

    How 'bout Whiskeytown, Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, Late Byrds. The Old 97's are awesome.
