ON MUSIC ~ Country...


TOP 5 ON FRIDAY...


The Music Memoirs asks us to name our Top 5 "Country" or "Alt-Country" songs:

Our first time participating in Top 5! Not our genre of expertise - but here are ones that came to mind today, in chronological order...

  1. Patsy Cline (composer, Willie Nelson) - Crazy - 1961

  2. The Byrds (composer, Bob Dylan) - You Ain't Goin' Nowhere - 1968

  3. Bob Dylan & Johnny Cash (composer, Bob Dylan) - Girl From the North Country - 1969

  4. Jerry Reed (composers, Dick Miller & Jerry Reed) - East Bound and Down - 1977

  5. Lucinda Williams (composer, Randy Weeks) - Can't Let Go - 1998

Nice. Patsy, and Eastbound and Down is a great choice.

Any list that includes Patsy Cline and Lucinda Williams is okay in my book. Nicely done!

Blackhawk was fairly popular in the 90s. You can read more about them here.

Oh, and I love that Jerry Reed song too! =))
