Now Entering WSVG Country on 790 AM

Johnny CashJohn PrineBilly Joe Shaver
The Delta blues created by artists such as Son House and Blind Lemon Jefferson influenced many artists, from Led Zeppelin to Eric Clapton to Bob Dylan. The Rolling Stones named themselves after a Muddy Waters tune.

Around the same time, artists such as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family made music evoking folklore and heritage of the South. Dubbed “hillbilly” music, it influenced another genre of music made by Johnny Cash, John Prine, Billy Joe Shaver and more.

Robert Johnson sang about the Crossroad Blues. Meet us at the new crossroads of these two uniquely American music influences in WSVG Country, now playing every day 790 AM and on the WSVG Radio Stream by clicking the “Listen Live” link at the top right of this page.

AM Country Heaven
by Jason Eady

Well, they sing about Jesus, they sing about Jones
And they sing of American pride
But they’re all too damn clean, polished like stones
And they won’t sing about cheatin’ and lies

Well, I remember the days when the singers just sang
And left it all in the stories they tell
These days we’re in AM country heaven
And FM country hell

I miss the days when the women were ugly
And the men were all forty years old
Cause you had to say something for people to listen
Now they just do what they’re told

Well it’s all about idols and pretty blonde hair
And how many trucks you can sell
Out here in AM country heaven
And FM country hell

Well out on these back roads the only real truth that I know
Don’t cross the radio band
It cuts through the static like a chill in the air
It fades out then it comes back again

Well I don’t mean to sound jaded cause I know there’re plenty
Young singers who aren’t up for sale
But they’re all stuck in AM country heaven
And FM country hell

Well I knew it was over the day that I overheard
A record executive cry
“Keep it all simple, don’t get offensive
And don’t play songs in three quarter time.”

Well mister record man I hope you don’t take offense
But you’re a helluva joke I can tell
You’re the reason we’re in AM country heaven
And FM country hell

Jason Eady - AM Country Heaven
