    Along with Tommy Collins, Wynn Stewart was one of the architects of the Bakersfield Sound. Merle and Buck were both heavily influenced by Wynn and Ralph Mooney took great pride and pleasure in having been Wynn’s steel player

    This song was a big hit, but Wynn, unfortunately, kept going back to this well with song titles like “Something Pretty,” “It’s a Beautiful Day,” “Heavenly,” “High Heaven,” “I Feel Pretty.”
    There’s only so much saccharine the market can take.

      True, but Wynn’s hard-core honky-tonk did not sell in great quantities and having finally found something that worked, if only briefly, Wynn stuck with it and had a few more hits.

      I am a big Wynn Stewart fan, especially of his pre-Capitol output. The Bear Family boxed set is full of great songs and performances

      I would not classify any of Wynn’s great recordings as “saccharin.” Without question he created some of the most distinctive sounding country music of the mid-twentieth century and had a very identifiable voice. Like most artists not every song that he recorded was a classic but he had a pretty solid batting average even for his album tracks. You may not personally like Wynn’s songs but he has plenty of fans that do. Based on your mostly negative posts on this site it appears there’s very little classic country music that you do like anyway so we shouldn’t be surprised.

      By the way Wynn never recorded “I Feel Pretty.” You have obviously confused Wynn’s recordings with the West Side Story Soundtrack.
