    Recorded December 13, 1977 this song became Charley’s 20th #1 hit and his only #1 single in 1978 topping the chart for two weeks in early April. A well-crafted song that expresses a wonderful sentiment using an economy of words. In an era when singles were getting longer & longer this record clocked in at an efficient 2:07. It became a favorite with radio DJ’s that needed a short song to back-time to a newscast or a hard-timed break.

    Charley’s out touring, check his website. I’m planning on going to see him. He’s just finishing up some dates in Canada where he is popular, there is some stat out there, something like he’s the 2nd most successful country artist in Canada sales-wise, that may only ,mean American artists but obviously, he is up there right now. Nice to stumble upon your website, I will read up, I also like the “hillbilly-music.com” website to keep up with birthdays of a lot of country artists throughout its long history.

    For the record, Charley Pride’s birthday will be March 18th, he was born in 1938, so I believe he will turn 80 years old. Yesterday’s birthday was Buddy Starcher’s; he was born March 16th, 1906 and lived to be 95 years old. He had a long career, one “hit”, it did chart, was “History Repeats Itself”, the other one is called “Sniper’s Hill” on the Vietnam war, it really is an interesting number. I like it, I like the female vocals and the mellowness of the instruments; the message of the song itself is a bit dated. They’ve got a whole channel at youtube called “Vietnam War Song Project” that has that and other songs. It’s pretty amazing, it’s got country, rock, anti-war songs, patriotic songs. Some of that country is interesting and you never heard of these artists anywhere else off of these 45s. Well, I”m sorry for the rant, if one has that time, one might check it out.
