Whitey Morgan does a solid with one of Townes Van Zandts first songs, "Waiting Around to Die", I still prefer Townes but Whitey did a great job.Townes Van Zandt’s ‘Dead Flowers’ (maybe) tops the original. Another tragic Country anti-hero.
I’d argue Dead Flowers, Sweet Virginia, or Love in Vain covered by the Stones.
If that's true then hopefully he's past the statute of limitations for killing ole Wilson in "Down the River"...Not new country by any means, but Id be willing to bet most of yall have never heard of him, let alone listened to his music: Chris Knight. Do yourself a favor and listen to a few of his songs! Down the river, it aint easy being me, house and 90 acres, North Dakota, pretty much the whole "a pretty good guy" album. I don't know how true it is, but Ive heard said that all of his songs are experiences hes either been through personally or knows someone who has.
LOL its all hearsay, but I read something a while back that said he was acquitted. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?...eing+me&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IESR4S&pc=EUPP_If that's true then hopefully he's past the statute of limitations for killing ole Wilson in "Down the River"...
