    Dolly’s excellent 1969 RCA Victor single never caught on with country radio listeners – it stalled at #45. But likely due to Dolly’s weekly appearances on the syndicated Porter Wagoner Show sales of her “My Blue Ridge Mountain Boy” album propelled it to #6 in the Billboard Country Album chart. That LP cover includes a rare photo of Dolly’s husband Carl Dean.
