I can't seem to figure out how to sort artists by alphabetical order, and not having it group any artist starting with "the" under t. Instead, I want it to group them by their actual name after "the". I tried googling this issue but I didn't find anything.

Assuming you're referring to the default sorting in foobar...

Preferences > Shell Integration > Sort incoming files by:

I suggest entering this in the box:
CODE
$stripprefix(%album artist%,The) - %date% - %album% - %discnumber% - %tracknumber% - %title%

Next time try searching these forums for the answer before asking as this type of question has been asked and answered innumerable times.

I suggest learning foobar's Title Formatting and Query Syntax.
