Post your best country heart break songs for me. Oldies, goodies, commonly heard, and obscure- just make it country .
Man, I love classic country. Even despite liking George Strait's give it away, it cannot hold a candle to some of the older songs that I posted.
OK. Me too. I am a sucker for a steel guitar , fiddle and stratocaster.... http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/msg/5781230835.html
Most good songs are about love and loss- especially good country.
I don't know how to sift out the ads, so bear with it.
emmy lou version excellent also
Emmy Lou- She is not known as a writer, but this song is great-about Gram Parsons .
Not classic- but- Eliza Gilkyson- fantastic fiddle/steel break in this- simple, clean, effective.
Patty Cline - one of my favorites- for an interesting comparison, listen to this, then go and find some cover's- Patty Cline sings this effortlessly, and the covers, even the covers by real pro's, sound like they are screaming.
Keith Whitley- classic
Russel Smith- Amazing rhythm Aces-
Killer chord changes on this
he sang this with Patty Loveless at George Jones memorial- right to the heart.
Vince Gill is one heck of a guitar player as well.
John Hiatt- not really "country", but pretty hard to categorize- one of the very best writers around- he constantly amazes.
And to finish this, a few white trash rockabilly songs-
