Somehow got started thinking about old country singers tonight and just kept going. Left a few here. Please add to the list if you are old enough to remember. And I will add more as I remember

Roger Miller ...I saw him perform once when I worked at the Roundup Inn in Fort Worth. He was absolutely great. And his songs have some levity to them. So before listening to the country downers thought he would be a good start.



Mo Bandy because I recently found out I am from a Bandy line (nothing self serving here)



Lefty Frizzell. This is the one I remember most



Patsy Cline...greatest female singer until Adelle. Died in 1963 at age 30



Keith Whitley...died in 1989 of alcohol poisoning



Marty Robbins...I add him because my step Uncle( I live with his family a while) who I lived with for a while grew up with Marty and he always came by when he was in town. This was in Glendale Az. My stepfather worked at a Rosa's Cantina there. Don't know which came first but this was about 1961.

Loves these when I was a kid. They still bring back a lot of memories.



Dang I have not heard this in YEARS.

A few more. Know not many are not in to this but I am having a good time and it is a break from the news.

Eddie Rabbit. Used to wonder if if Rabbit was his real name but it was. One of my relatives married a Peacock.


My favorite country singer. I was 17 when something he sang made me like him. Not a normal voice one would be drawn to but millions were.


This isn't country but recall hearing this in the 60's and loved it...The Cascades...only hit they had.

Yes. Don't think there are many songs that can live up to the emotion in the song or this version.

Didn't include Hank cause I thought someone might. I consider him the father of Country though there were many backwoods singers who came before. You could always feel their songs.

You asked for the father of country, well here he is . . . the King of Texas!

She was probably good in her younger days. The voice has a young black country singer (Blake's team) that I would love to break to through the white female country singers. Her voice is great but seems to lack range but she is only 16 or so. if she doesn't make it am hoping someone will pick her up and give her help.
