"There are few guys who had a bunch hits with a mullet," Jon Pardi says of Joe Diffie. "That is country strong."
At this year's Faster Horses Festival, we had some of today's country stars including Cole Swindell, Darius Rucker, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge and Jon Pardigive us a brief history of '90s country by discussing their biggest influences in the genre. The country singers chose 90s legends Joe Diffie, Alan Jackson, Radney Foster and Brooks and Dunn to spotlight.
"Alan Jackson is underestimated as a songwriter," Swindell points out. Talking on his heroes Brooks and Dunn, Eldredge explains that the duo initially started out as solo artists, but came together to form a team that was made in "country music heaven."
