    Mastodon's Troy Sanders is a true Southern boy. Even though he plays in metal's most progressive quartet, the Atlanta native loves country. One look at his playlist, and it's clear that Troy's got quite eclectic taste.

    "My five-CD player at home is still loaded up with the same CDs," he laughs with a giant grin. "I rarely take out my five classic country albums. That's my music for cooking, cleaning and all things home-y [Laughs]. I've got Willie Nelson, George Jones, John Prine and Porter Wagner. It's all classic country. Nothing new and exciting to tell you on that end, unfortunately [Laughs]."

    Troy still is listening to "a little old and new," and he gave ARTISTdirect.com an exclusive peek at his playlist.

    Take a look at what Troy is spinning below and be sure to check out Mastodon's latest epic, Crack the Skye.
