    It seems odd that with all the great songs Dickey Lee wrote and recorded that his only Billboard #1 was on the Austin Roberts song “Rocky”. Three other songs reached #1 on other country charts: “Never Ending Song of Love” (Record World #1 – 1971) , Angels, Roses & Rain (#1 Cashbox – 1976) and “9,999,999 Tears” (#1 Cashbox & #1 Record World- 1976)

    Dickey’s most famous song is “She Thinks I Still Care” which George Jones took to #1 for six weeks and Anne Murray (as “He Thinks I Still Care” also took to #1.

    1955 was Webb Pierce’s biggest year with #1 songs on one or more of the three Billboard Country charts for essentially the entire year.
