About Us

What is Twangville?

Twangville began in early 2005 by humble means as a place to post playlists for our friends. It wasn't long before we expanded to covering releases, reviews, downloads, links and more. Ultimately, we just want to help spread the word about some of our favorite musicians who often don't get the credit they deserve. In search of twang, we typically look beyond traditional and mainstream country into genres like americana, alt-country, indie, rock, folk and blues ... or just about anything that features a guitar. You'll find that we tend to emphasize the alternative side of alt-country.
