The whole alt. country sound sort of speaks for a lot of forgotten people that get stereotyped. It interest's me how it's the same anger you'd find in punk, or I assume some of the metal styles referenced, just a different style of music.

She keeps telling me I should go to a Sadyes [sp ?] concert with her, a big favorite of hers, but I just haven't gotten around to it.

Well put. If you like Neil, I really recommend that you try Uncle Tupelo, and more specifically Jay Farrar - he's this generation's Neil IMO. I find myself listening to his band Son Volt and UT more than all other bands combined these days. 'Trace' is the best album to come out in the past 20 years IMO.
