Giants I tell you. Wait - you said pretty good. My bad.
I used the term 'giants' not because they're liked by a certain amount of people, but because they're liked by a lot of significant people in entertainment. The real people in the music industry and touring bands usually have good taste. It's kind of like a 'players choice award'.. the people working in music think very highly of bands like my morning jacket and deer tick. The recognize their influences come from greats of the past. You can hear townes van zandt in a lot of deer tick, you can hear a lot other stuff too. I hate trying to explain it all, it rarely comes out the way I intend.
I was going to go on about Jim James and John McCauley impressive side projects, their tribute albums to legends like Jon Prine and Woody Guthrie, and other stuff like playing at the White House..
But here's is a clip from an American Dad episode that is a tribute to my morning jacket, it's a good episode if you want to find the full episode somewhere. LINK
