Hank Snow performs "I've Cried A Mile" (lun, 15 oct 2018)
Hank Snow took this song into the Top 20 of the Billboard Country Charts in the summer of 1965/66.   It's a mid-tempo tale of woe from the pens of Harlan Howard & Tompall Glaser.   Clarence Eugene "Hank" Snow (May 9, 1914 – December 20, 1999) was a Canadian-American country music artist. In a career that spanned more than 50 years, he recorded 140 albums and charted more than 85 singles on the Billboard country charts from 1950 until 1980. His number-one hits include the self-penned songs "I'm Moving On", "The Golden Rocket" and The Rhumba Boogie and famous versions of "I Don't Hurt Anymore", "Let Me Go, Lover!", "I've Been Everywhere", "Hello Love", as well as other top 10 hits.   Snow was an accomplished songwriter whose clear, baritone voice expressed a wide range of emotions including the joys of freedom and travel as well as the anguish of tortured love. His music was rooted in his beginnings in small-town Nova Scotia where, as a frail, 80-pound youngster, he endured extreme poverty, beatings and psychological abuse as well as physically punishing labour during the Great Depression. Through it all, his musically talented mother provided the emotional support he needed to pursue his dream of becoming a famous entertainer like his idol, the country star, Jimmie Rodgers.   As a performer of traditional country music, Snow won numerous awards and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.The Hank Snow Museum in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, celebrates his life and work in a province where his fans still see him as an inspirational figure who triumphed over personal adversity to become one of the most influential artists in all of country music. WIKIPEDIA
Hank Snow I've Cried A Mile lyrics   Oh, the road of love is rocky, and it's lonely, and so blue, When the one you dream of, walks on ahead of you. Well, I laughed the day she left me, said she'd come back in awhile, But for every inch I've laughed, I've cried a mile.   It's a mighty lonesome feeling, when you go to bed at night; And there's nothing but a memory, and a pillow on your right. Oh, if men were born to suffer, then I guess I'm right in style, Cause for every inch I've laughed, I've cried a mile.   Well, I laughed and said a new love would be easy to find;  I was right, they're so easy, and all the wrong kind. As I travel down life's highway, it hardly seems worthwhile, That for every inch I've laughed, I've cried a mile.   It's a mighty lonesome feeling, when you go to bed at night; And there's nothing but a memory, and a pillow on your right. Oh, if men were born to suffer, then I guess I'm right in style, Cause for every inch I've laughed, I've cried a mile.

Keith Whitley performs "That Stuff" (mié, 10 oct 2018)
Jackie Keith Whitley (July 1, 1955 – May 9, 1989) was an American country music singer. During his career, Whitley only recorded two albums but charted 12 singles on the Billboard country charts, and 7 more after his death.   Born in Ashland, Kentucky, Whitley grew up in nearby Sandy Hook, Kentucky. Whitley began his career there in 1970, performing in Ralph Stanley's band. Establishing himself as a lead singer in bluegrass music, Whitley moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in 1983 and began his recording career there. His first Top 20 Country Hit single, "Miami, My Amy", was released in 1986. While touring for his album L.A. to Miami, he married country singer Lorrie Morgan. In 1988, his first three singles from his studio album Don't Close Your Eyes, the title song, "When You Say Nothing at All" and "I'm No Stranger to the Rain" were number-one hits. On May 9, 1989, he suffered alcohol poisoning at his home in Nashville, and died as a result. His death came in the wake of several years of alcoholism. His later two singles, "I Wonder Do You Think of Me" and "It Ain't Nothin'", were released after his death. WIKIPEDIA Keith Whitley- That Stuff lyrics   Well, if the sun comes up in the morning And the same old moon keeps coming out at night I'm gonna drink this jawbreaker whiskey I'm gonna live it up, I'm gonna be alright I'm gonna let you love my troubles away Think about troubles another day I ain't gonna worry about that stuff tonight   That stuff gonna give me a fit That stuff, I gotta wait a little bit The boss man's loud and he talks too much Nagging and abragging and such and such But I ain't gonna worry about that stuff tonight That stuff   Well, lets punch that clock in the morning Fingers to the bone, take a job home at night Well, they can take that job and shove it I'ma gonna dance with you to the broad daylight I'm gonna take you to town, stay all night long Jitterbug home at the break of dawn I ain't gonna worry about that stuff tonight   That stuff gonna give me a fit That stuff, I got to wait a little bit The boss man's loud and he talks too much Nagging and abragging and such and such But I ain't gonna worry about that stuff tonight   That stuff gonna give me a fit That stuff, I got to wait a little bit The boss man's loud and he talks too much Nagging and abragging and such and such But I ain't gonna worry about that stuff tonight
