This is such a simple song,and there is nothing spectacular about the singing,but for some reason it seems to be one of my new favorite songs. Damn thing has been out since the late 60's or early 70's,and I just heard it for the first time maybe a week ago. How the HELL is that even possible?

I knew that one, good choice. @sneakypete

Loretta Lynn Says She Believes Country Music Is 'Dead': 'I Think It's a Shame to Let It Die'
Helen Murphy

Loretta Lynn is not shying away from sharing her opinions about today’s country music.

During a recent interview on Martina McBride‘s podcast Vocal Point with Martina McBride, available on Luminary, the country legend pronounced the genre “dead,” adding that “we should never let country music die.”

“They’ve already let it [die],” Lynn, 87, told McBride. “I think it’s dead. I think it’s a shame. I think it’s a shame to let a type of music die. I don’t care what any kind of music it is. Rock, country, whatever. I think it’s a shame to let it die, and I’m here to start feeding it.”

Time to get a few tunes in....

Eddie Rabbitt - Pour Me Another Tequila

Here, I won't have to hunt up a picture, Crystal Gayle, Loretta Lynn's sister, well, she grew her hair about longer than you'll ever see someone wear there hair. Look for more pictures if this isn't enough. All the way to the floor... this is actually a bit cheezy of a song but so be it.
Just You And I - Crystal Gayle and Eddie Rabbitt

But here, Crystal Gayle does "Some Day Soon" with it's author or co-author, Ian Tyson. Has to be one of the top all time country songs,

(btw, her song I know that was real big was "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue', she has another big one too, I forget the name, probably a few)

Ian and Sylvia, Ian says here, Judy Collins sang the song and yes, it was Judy Collins' version "Some Day Soon" that became such a megahit, 7:40 seconds into this Ian and Sylvia reunion concert:

Osborne sounded so much like Hank Williams Sr that it's scary.

I see Dolly and Porter also covered this. Very mellow music.

One of those songs covered by many and famous, in spite of the name if one had never heard about it, a religious song.

Jan Howard, Country Singer and Longtime Grand Ole Opry Member, Dies at 91
3/29/2020 by Ashley Iasimone

Jan Howard, country singer and songwriter and longtime member of the Grand Ole Opry, died on Saturday (March 28) in Gallatin, Tenn., at the age of 91.

Howard, born Lula Grace Johnson, began her career in music by singing on demos written by then-husband Harlan Howard that were recorded by Nashville acts like Kitty Wells and Charlie Walker, and had her first own country hit with "The One You Slip Around With" in 1960.

Other notable singles she released as a solo artist -- which made Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart -- included "Evil on Your Mind" (1966), "Bad Seed" (1966) and "My Son" (1968), an emotional track written for one of her sons, Jimmy, who was soon after killed in action in Vietnam. She received Grammy nominations for both "Evil on Your Mind" and"My Son."

Country star Jan Howard celebrates 91st birthday

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 13, 2020 in Music
On March 13, 2020, veteran country music star and Grand Ole Opry member Jan Howard celebrated her 91st birthday. Digital Journal has the scoop.

With this birthday milestone, Howard is the oldest living member of the hallowed Grand Ole Opry. She began her career in the country music industry as a demo vocalist, where she was the first singer to record such classic country songs as Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces," Ray Price's "Heartaches by the Number," and Patsy Cline's "She's Got You," among many other standards.


Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

Throughout her tenure in the country music business, Howard earned two Grammy nominations for "Best Country Vocal Performance, Female" for such recordings as the Top 5 hit single "Evil On Your Mind" and "My Son."

I think she did quite a bit with Bill Anderson.

Looks like PBS even penned an article on her in regards to their show that was about Country Music.

Tammy Wynette was trained as a beautician and she never let her license lapse, even when she became a big star, tragic figure really, short life.
Tammy Wynette - Apartment #9.

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

Here is a story I vaguely recall about her:

Quote
A Battered Tammy Wynette Relives the Macabre Abduction That Nearly Killed Her
By Kristin McMurran and Dolly Carlisle October 23, 1978 12:00 PM

He opened the door, held the gun in his left hand and dragged me out of the car. Then he hit me with his fist. I thought, Oh, God, I’m gonna die…

This time, country singer Tammy Wynette’s anguished words were not lyrics in another of her hymns to hillbilly heartbreak but a chillingly vivid account from her own life. Two weeks ago, Wynette reports, she was kidnapped at gunpoint in Nashville by a stocking-masked man, taken on a harrowing 80-mile ride through the Tennessee back country, then beaten and choked and left hysterical on the roadside. A local family fortuitously discovered Tammy before her fractured cheekbone, severe bruises and shock produced worse complications. The apparently motiveless brutality—her $40 in cash and 30 credit cards were untouched, and she was not sexually assaulted—was described as “very puzzling” by Nashville detectives, as they stepped up their investigation.

“It was the most terrifying experience of my life,” whispers Tammy, 36, three times the Country Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year and the noticeably absent but chief topic of both sympathy and lurid speculation at last week’s televised awards. The former beautician’s tempestuous life (she was born Wynette Pugh) has already provided the stuff for dozens of country classics like Stand by Your Man even before her fling with Burt Reynolds and her clamorous 1975 D-I-V-O-R-C-E (another of her hits) from George Jones. He was her great longtime singing partner and the third of her five husbands.
