Caught an episode of Bluegrass Underground a while back with this guy. He was first-rate.

John Prine, Willie Nelson, and Billy Joe Shaver are still alive (and performing). Dwight Yoakum has written a ton of great songs. Hell, REK. Steve Earle. Iconic country music songwriters.



Crap...I completely forgot about Billy Joe Shaver. Love his stuff, but I'm not sure what he has been cranking out lately. Willie is, without a doubt, the most prolific songwriter listed. By shear volume, he should be on the list.

Joe Ely is still touring so I'd add him to the conversation.

I think Ian Noe may be on this list pretty soon. His album is really good.
