There are many Country Music legends out there that I still study and enjoy, that are very much alive and active. Some of them are not healthy, but they are still out there keeping the roads HOT.

I absolutely love the 90s and late 80s Pop type Country Music, like his 1992 album called “Back Against The Wall”. It’s one of the most overlooked ( and often snubbed) albums from that era of my youth.

These album relied solely on sweet and easy vocals, and easy to understand songs of love and love lost. Many times some of the albums were filled with cover songs, which brings me to people like Mr. B.J.Thomas….because he sang many covers better than the original.
