What's more amazing is that Fogerty played ALL the instruments on the Blue Ridge Rangers album.

Indeed he did. As you said,amazing.

What's your opinion of Hank Wilson's Back? Billy Byrd helped Leon out on the album.

Ray Charles always counts. Did he do a crossover country album. I hope so!

Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music

This is a lot of fun. I'm learning something. I'm very familiar with the songs on the album because I heard them every day on the radio. Just didn't consider them as crossover because I'm not sure the term was even valid back then. I grew up listening to the "Big Ape WAPE, mighty 690" out of Jacksonville, Fl. I believe it had a sister station in New Orleans or Baton Rouge, don't rightly remember, by the same call letters.
