Setting Here Thinking Of Country Music!

So I was sitting here once again as usual thinking about country music! The family got together tonight for some good food...Turkey - Ham - and the "fixins" haha. We started talking about country songs we all loved. I pulled out an old recording I loved and played it for everyone. I am a big time fan of the Opry stars there's no question of that. While I was there last year I had the chance to see Jean Shephard live...One of my favorite song's in the world is "Dear John" it's a duet between her and Ferlin Husky. From back in 1953 and also a #1 hit for them as well! Take a listen to it and take a trip back in time! What A GREAT song! This live recording was done at one of the reunion shows. I remember watching them growing up...I LOVED the legends on the show. Jimmy Capps the gentleman that is playing lead guitar on this song, and on many of the reunion shows once played with Butch James dad. His dad Curly Howard spent many years in Nashville playing with the stars. He was also in radio for many years. He lived the dream for sure! Jimmy Capps is also in the Opry band.
