    “The Lord Knows I’m Drinking” was written by Bill Anderson and was the first of three #1 records for former Texas Troubadour Cal Smith. Cal was already 40 years old when this record hit for him, and was only his second top ten record, although it was his 13th charted song (the other eleven songs failed to break the top thirty). Cal made a small change to the lyrics in order to make it more acceptable to radio ,changing the phrase “good Baptist woman” to “self righteous woman” so as to not offend any particular religious group

    “What Part of No” was Laurie Morgan’s second #1 record, thereby doubling the number of #1 records scored by her father George Morgan
