Gothic Americana/ Alt-Country/ Dark Cabaret

 We read from forum:
"Just wondering if anyone else on this forum is a fan of the growing "Gothic Country" trend that's been emerging since the early 2000s. For those who are not aware of this growing trend it's essentially country music that's taken a far more rustic approach to country music and the songwriting has taken a more dark tone. Songs about murder, abuse, alcoholism, and tragedy often make up the song matter". blogger

if interested here are some bands (in alphabetical order):
creech holler

This should be enough to get you started.

 "...stay true to the darkness, find rest in the night. Old Crow Prophet is watching over you whispering black thoughts into your dreams."
