    I really like the Chesnutt entry from 94.

    LeftyFrizzell’s last #1 record makes its debut at the top this week in 1964. The current generation knows not Lefty, but singers such as Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley, John Anderson and Randy Travis were definite Frizzell acolytes and the genre is much richer for his existence. Lefty continued to make good records after this and to write good songs some of which were hits for other artists such as “That’s The Way Love Goes” (a #1 for both Haggard and Johnny Rodriguez) and “I Never Go Around Mirrors” (a song Whitley recorded for an album and others have covered)
