Earl Thomas Conley
It does get a little confusing, country music fans. Conlee? Conley? Let’s just be glad Con Hunley doesn’t have a new album. Conley is one of the best gruff-and-ready country rockers, as he demonstrates on the Elton John-Gary Osborne tune Ball and Chain and on Randy Scruggs’ Angel in Disguise. Name confusions aside, he’s one of Nashville’s most distinctive performers.
