Classic Country Songs By Classic Country Singers

I'm feeling nostalgic today, in particular about the kind of music I grew up listening to. Specifically, classic country music. Some things change for the better. Some things just change. One thing that doesn't, though. The old classics are still, well, classic. Take a trip back with me to a time when music was music, when singers could sing live without electronic enhancement, when even sad songs made you smile. Enjoy!  ~  JH
