  • I am also a "bigfanofmusic", esp., Porter Wagoner...!!!!

  • Katy Did only has 52 plays and half of those are mine!
  • One of the best.
  • Seconded great country star, The Rubber Room, what a track
  • Another great country star that doesn't get the attention he truly deserves! And that's why i made this group: [url=http://www.last.fm/group/Country+from+the+50s+%26+60s]Country from the 50s & 60s[/url] To make sure that classic country artists like Porter won't be forgotten. It was he who made Dolly known to the world and he made outstanding songs/albums himself. R.I.P. Porter.
