A Beatles cover helped a younger generation discover his music but Owens recalls a flight during which his neighbor explained to him how she loved the Beatles but hated country music. This autobiographical reminiscence was a gear-shift for Lynn, who'd made her name by feistily fending off hordes of honky-tonk homewreckers out to bed her man. The song originally rambled for six minutes and eight verses before producer Owen Bradley got out his red pen, excising a scene of Lynn's mother hanging movie magazines on their cabin wall as well as other homey details.
It's country music's definitive started-from-the-bottom anthem, climaxing with one of popular music's most stirring key changes. Though Lynn is proud of her family's hardworking decency, she never pretends that her life would've been better if she'd never left Butcher Holler and poverty behind.
By Keith Harris. Leave it to the poet laureate of Texas country to not only tell a story of betrayal, but to make the turncoat a sympathetic character. In the song, the bandit Pancho Villa has been dispatched by the hangman's rope, but at least his suffering is over.
His sidekick Lefty, who set him up, has to die a thousand deaths, trying to live with what he's done while hiding out in cheap hotels up north. By David Menconi. Devotees have been puzzling over the meaning of this enigmatic masterpiece for 40 years, but it has yet to yield up a definitive interpretation.
Parsons' protagonist is a none-too-bright bridegroom at a low-rent possibly shotgun wedding, where he is stood up for reasons unknown. Maybe the bride died, maybe she ran off with someone else — it's never specified.
So he and his groomsmen go on a drunken bender so epic, "It's lucky they survived. Duet partner Emmylou Harris blesses the proceedings with the perfect note of angelic sadness. But like most of her debut Same Trailer, Different Park, "Follow Your Arrow" isn't an attack on conservatism so much as an attack on any system that keeps us from being who we are, gay or straight, sober or stoned. The first million-seller by a female country artist, this yodeling paean to the Wild West mythos made an icon of Arkansas-born singer-songwriter-actress-fiddler and Jimmie Rodgers fan Ruby Blevins, a.
Patsy Montana. By Charles Aaron. Country's Greatest Actor and Crankiest Pill-popper. Prediction: Heartbreak wins again, in the most bluntly theatrical way possible. The couple's screwy marriage on the outs, they sound like they're about to wrap their hands around each other's throats. Inspired by a made-for-TV movie about a handgun's history — going from cop to murderer to little kid — genius co-writer Bobby Braddock subs a wedding ring for the gun.
But the narrative is no less gritty, working you over like a Cassavettes flick, moving from the mundane the intro's inexplicably frisky guitar to the devastating in the song's crowning scene, Wynette voices the man's palpable hurt, while Jones intones grimly, "She says one thing's for certain, I don't love you anymore".
The ring ends up back in the Chicago pawn shop from whence it came. Our protagonists, meanwhile, remain a dizzy gospel-invoking mess. The song that possibly best articulates the doomed country mythos that Hank Williams' life and death epitomize wasn't written by Hank himself. The blind country singer-songwriter Leon Payne wrote and recorded "Lost Highway" just a year before.
Payne wasn't just waxing spiritually metaphorical: He was indeed lost along the highway, struggling unsuccessfully to hitchhike from California to Texas to visit his ailing mother, forced instead to seek food and shelter in a Salvation Army. Apart from the song's introductory guitar riff, which Don Everly lifted from an earlier tune called "Give Me a Future," the brothers didn't write "Bye Bye Love.

Its opening lyrics were mondegreened, pursuant to the mishaps of oral tradition. No version, however, is quite so outlandish as country comedian Dan Bowman's hallucinogenic variation, "Wildwood Weed.

One of her favourite parts of the new show is when she gets to do the romantic numbers with her husband they fell in love in , the same year they joined Strictly, and married four years later , an experience many women would give their right arm for.
