DaphneApollo - Thanks for the opportunity.
This one (or - these) is kinda "out there" for some old-timey Country fans...but, I've loved Alison Krause since first seeing her blue-grassing it in
the 80's. When I saw that she and Robert Plant had done something together, I figured she would surely outshine him (with the years on his
voice)...but, wow - they were outstanding together.
...here "Please Read The Letter".
And, I don't know if there is a video for this song (aside from what I'm posting...which is just a bunch of "slides")...but, my favorite from the
compilation is/was - "Nothing"

Thank you so much for adding these. I have never heard either one, but I love Alison Krauss, she is so beautiful, and seems to get more so with age.
She can play that fiddle. It seems odd that Robert Plant would go toward this genre the second one even has his old with a bit of fiddle in it too.
Those were truly lovely. I would give you several stars if I could....
Charlie Parker, the jazz sax player listened to country music. One day one of his friends asked him why are you listening to that stuff? Parker
answered, "The stories man. The stories."
I wanted to include a song that implies a story, rather than telling it start to finish. This was the breakout song for a young lady from
Tennessee and I cannot possibly communicate how hard hit I was when I first heard it . . . on the radio. No visuals, just the music and the voice. The
voice, the attitude, the warmth and love that flowed through that beautiful voice.
This video has some startling visuals, but I ignore all but a couple of them and focus on that beautiful voice.

Dudley Connell, Rich Underwood, David McLaughlin, Larry Robbins, and the one and only Eddie Stubbs on the fiddle. From that "Old Schoolhouse" in
Lucketts, Virginia. Here is the Johnson Mountain Boys with the "Georgia Stomp."

This one is a bit newer compared to a lot of the others that have been posted, and many are excellent btw.
This one touched me because I cant count how many times I have wanted to go back and see the ghost of memories in my homes I suppose. I've been able
to drive by but not go in. Im sure many here can relate. Sorry, cant help the ad in the beginning, but I thought her video gave more to the story
While Im here, Im kind of surprised no one posted Roy Orbisons "Crying." I really love this version with KD Lang. The harmonies are wonderful. I
dont think KD Lang ever got enough credit for her awesome voice in the country world, but thats another story....
