Nowadays when someone says Country-Western Music, some will snicker and out right laugh, then question your age. If you know what I mean you might be old enough to know. My mom used to love putting on an album of her favorite Country-Western artists while she cleaned and because I was a horrible helper (I was a spoiled only child when times were good), I would sit on the couch and read the album cover while she did. As I got to know the song's I would sing along with the artists, to my mom's dismay-of course. (I can't sing)

Here are my Favorites (via my mom):

Barbara Mandrell "Married, but Not to Each Other":


Crystal Gayle "Don't it Make My Brown Eye's Blue"

Dolly Parton "Jolene":

Conway Twitty "Hello, Darlin'":

George Jones and Tammy Wynette "Golden Ring":

I don't know about you, but this was the way it was. These golden voices with the sound of the needle soaring across the vinyl, that little hissing static sound-oh the days! There are quite a few more that I thought of, but the list would be a mile long if I didn't stop now-okay, one more...

Loretta Lynn "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take my Man":
