Speaking of Charlie Rich.....
This Carlene Carter one is my very favourite of any the carter family songs....
Now, as much as I like Dolly Parton, I'm not over enamoured by all her stuff....but this for example is the type of music I like when Dolly does it...just sooo beautiful, and with such feeling..
...and Stella Parton, although never ever getting the big break like Dolly....did have a few minor hits, and IMO this song by Stella should have been a Massive Hit..and wasn't, which is a great shame....it's one of my all time Favourites... Turn your volume up loud and enjoy
Mari....you've mentioned a couple of times that you're a lyricist, .we'd love to hear some of your stuff, have you got much published ..? I'd love to listen to it if you have...or are you secretly very famous..
Today, January 19th, is Dolly Parton's birthday. Turns 70 today. I thought this article was really good....
If a person listens to Country, and what "day and age" of Country a person listens to can definitely come from a couple of places.........perhaps where a person was raised and the age of that person.
There are states in the U.S., while driving thru them, Country is the main music, while some other states the main music can be Rock. I've drove thru states that I've heard more of one than the other.
If you were raised with parents, in an area that plays mostly Country (modern or older), that is probably what you will like. The same goes for rock music.
As for me, I wasn't raised with either Country or Rock b/c my step-parents didn't listen to the radio. However, they did watch the Lawrence Welk Show every Saturday night (but I would get to my bedroom quickly, if I could).
My yearly High School Dance was definitely made up of rock music.
Age wise, if a person loves the old Country music of Hank Williams Sr. or Ernest Tubbs, there's a chance they are from the prior "Baby Boomer" generation. Wife and I are the early "Baby Boomers", being born in '48/'49 and grew up in the areas of Oldies/Rock (me) and Motown/Oldies (her).
I remember buying a cassette with Ronnie Milsap's song Smokey Mountain Rain on it, which I loved. Also had Eddie Rabbit's song, Driving My Life Away. This when I first got into Country music back in the early 80's and went to a nightclub where the band played these songs and older. After that, it was on to Reba, Brooks & Dunn, Clint Black, Alan Jackson and others.
Sure I remember Charlie Rich with this! This song came to my life before Kenny Rogers as country singer, because I had already listen to Kenny as a part of the San Francisco Flower Power movement.
Later I loved all those country songs he recorded between the end of the 1970s and until the early 1990s. By this time I was a country girl, literally, because the movie "Urban Cowboy" made popular country/western songs.
After this I discovered Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, Loretta Lynn, Dottie West, Tammy Wynnette, Tanya Tucker, the Oak Ridge Boys, Emmylou Harris, Barbara Mandrell, Don Williams, Conway Twitty, Glen Campbell and so many others, including Willie Nelson but he was not longer looking like he looks in the video Holly posted
Oh my! I had forgotten this song and this movie, one of my three MM favorites, in fact the third of the list being "Let's Make Love" the second in my list, and "Some Like it Hot" my very, very favorite of all.
My sister is a die-hard Marilyn Monroe fan, and it was irremediable I wouldn't picked something out from her
...and this next one is probably the cleanest and smartest you'd ever see Johnny Paycheck...LOL...bless them both!!
I love Charley..... it's that smiley face...
Stirctly speaking this next one is ''Folk''...I'm a Huge Folk music fan..it's my numero uno favourite music genre...Celtic, and American folk music especially...however folk music and country is very interchangeable and many have become crossovers over the years until no-one is sure if they started off as Folk or country or even bluegrass.., so I'm gonna put my folk contributions on here with the Country music , I hope no-one minds..
