5 Country, Americana and Folk Artists We Can’t Wait to See at SXSW 2017

SXSW has long been a music fan’s paradise. For a solid week, hundreds (maybe thousands) of bands descend upon Austin, Texas, turning every possible space into a live music venue. Though every genre known to man is represented at SXSW, there is something special about the country-related shows that pop up across Austin during this week — after all, the festival is in the middle of Texas!

In 2017, the music portion of SXSW is set for March 13-19; in anticipation, The Boot has gone through the grueling process of picking five shows (yes, only five, out of the potential gazillion) festivalgoers absolutely must add to their schedules. Whether you’re a straight-up country fan or you prefer Americana, alt-country and / or folk, there’s something you’ll enjoy.

If you’re preparing to hit up SXSW, make sure to start crafting your own live music schedule here, and check out The Boot’s picks for the country, Americana and folk artists you won’t want to miss by flipping through the photo gallery above.
