    I love both the Milsap and Chicks tracks this week.

    Good songs this week – I still think the best version of “Don’t You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me” was by Jack Greene, recorded in 1966 while he still was a member of the Texas Troubadours. It didn’t chart nationally but created sufficient buzz to get him another single .

    Sonny James version of “Only The Lonely” was probably the best cover of an Orbison song that I’ve ever heard
