Strangely, for a state where farming plays such a central role, we really don't have a big country scene. It seems that if a musician wants to dig into that rural, pastural part of their music psyche, in this state, they usually turn to folk or Americana.

But be as that may, a few souls still are ready to tread the country road. And in this episode, we featured 5 Iowa artists doing just that, ranging from alt country to modern country.

Opening - Iowa Music Showcase opening by Dylan Boyle
Song 1 - "Don't You Pray for Me" by The Colt Walkers
Song 2 - "North of the River" by Monday Mourners
Song 3 - "Hold On" by Crossfire
Song 4 - "That Kinda Tough" by Danny Grause
Song 5 - "Aim's Gettin' Better" by Diana Upton-Hill
Closing - Iowa Music Showcase closing by Dylan Boyle
