    Sammy LLamas from the BoDeans wrote a song about Emmylou. They opened for her in their early days, and were all crazy for her.

    Best all time is a pretty big statement and I’m not going to argue the topic, but even before all this there was a few hotties


    And I can’t believe nobody has mentioned ..........

    I can certainly understand that..It's something that I had a problem with accepting for a long time myself..But being raised listening to traditional country, I know it's the way it just is..
    That music was (originally) meant for those people who were familiar with that sound..As it gained in popularity it was being heard by people who didn't understand where it was coming from..
    We're not going to change that fact.
    I have to force myself to sound traditional myself, when it's called for..

    Notice the different feel between the country and pop versions..Same song but somehow different..

    Now that is cheating a bit! He ain't pretty, and Dolly said he most certainly is not a girl! Still, he was one of the best of the early Country artists.
    Someone once asked me what the first Country song I remember from when I was kid was, and that is easy.

    It seems you may have missed my point in posting that..
    I was trying to show the different way most of us view the sounds we hear..
    People in NYC or Boston would likely choose TJ, while those in Tenn. or Alabama would be more inclined to like PW..

    I was writing that while you were posting the second.
    They did that a lot in the old days. They released a song in a pop or rock format, and in a country format, often at the same time.
    Somewhere there is a version of Me and Bobby McGee sung by Bobbie Gentry that was released at the same time as the Janis version, as another example.

    Just watched the ACM awards last night and am surprised that nobody has mentioned Reba in this thread. She has always been and always will be a good looking country girl.
