There are few things in life that are certain, and one of those things is the fact the Montanans love their country music.

Throughout the state, there are a lot of country music concerts each year. Montana, country music, and ice-cold beer seem to go together perfectly. There are many talented country artists that you may not hear on the radio, but that doesn't mean they are any less significant than mainstream artists.

The Under the Big Sky Festival in Whitefish, Montana is a great example. Sure, there may be a few mainstream artists like Midland and Jamey Johnson included in the lineup, but for the most part, the music consists of artists that don't get much airplay on the radio. Artists like the Turnpike Troubadours, Zach Bryan, Paul Cauthen, Lord Huron, Cody Jinks, and others.

Paul Cauthen is a Neo-traditional/alt-country artist who has been making a name for himself with his unique brand of country music and high-energy shows. His music may not be for everyone, but there's no doubt that he's enjoying his time in the spotlight. His deep, silky voice has earned him the nickname "Big Velvet," which is also the title of one of his most popular songs.

His latest album Country Coming Down is full of songs that aren't really appropriate for children or those that are easily offended.

Personally, I'm a huge Paul Cauthen fan. He's doing something that nobody else is. His style of music is one-of-a-kind.
