    Crazy stuff – just listened to “Blue Skies” earlier today and here it is, atop the 1978 chart.

    That aside… at this point, maybe I should stop paying attention to the first of the two 2018 charts.

    Early Merle (pre “Okie”) is still the best: Crisp, sharp, timeless and none of the political baggage that accompanied him–for better or worse–for much of his career.
