There is such a thing as a good country feel, and though it is not complex per se, it is not a gimme either. Could check Larrie Londin for samples, more recently Trey Gray. Jim Keltner has done some nice work on few Neil Young country songs as well, but Jim Keltner doesn't count because he's good at everything.

I'm not sure if TB was rehearsed enough for that country gig, but looks aside, the appropriate feel is absent.
