I'm certainly not precluding putting all-country stuff on the list, but Wilco seems to me to be a little too far to the alt side--they have never gotten much play on country radio so it's hard to see where they've really had much success or impact within the country genre as a whole. But something like "Fast As You" (or, earlier, "Pancho And Lefty") would seem to fit the list. Ah, but should I use the original "Pancho And Lefty" or the hit version? Hmmm....


Yeah, basically alot of "alt country" artists have little success or impact in country music mainstream. The exceptions I know of being Lyle Lovett, Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle, kd lang (although she was much more successful once she stopped targeting country radio) and - briefly - Hank Williams III, and even then all of those artists have been roundly ignored by country radio for a good fifteen years.

6 I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams

Have you heard of Johnny Cash? He's quite good.

hehe...yeah, it was between "I Walk The Line" and "I Will Always Love You" for the last spot. Bruce said something similar, so unless someone gives me a good argument to the contrary I'll move "I Walk The Line" to 10 or maybe even a spot or two higher. And "Ring Of Fire" will probably be in the top 20 as well.

Wouldn't "I Walk the Line" at least beat your #'s 8-10? Why is "Forever and Ever, Amen" in the Top 10 anyway? Doesn't seem to have much going for it except popularity. Also what are your criteria? I wouldn't use the original ones. Originality is to subjective, and what does "musical and lyrical atrributes" even mean?

Definitely not going to use the original criteria. I was thinking something along the lines of "Popularity, acclaim, influence, and importance within the country music world." Should acclaim be in there? Not sure.

My thinking on "Forever And Ever Amen" is that it really heralded a sea change in country music; I know in radio circles for a long time it was the dividing line between what a contemporary country station could and couldn't play. "Make The World Go Away" is similar, in that way; they both rate so high because I think they had a big impact on what records got made and played in their wake. While Johnny Cash is undoubtedly more important than Eddy Arnold and WAY more important than Randy Travis, I'm not sure any one of his records had quite that impact. (Similarly, Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks didn't get into the top ten but will have at least two songs each not far below.)

Which of the really early records are the most important ones? I'm thinking "Blue Yodel #1 (T For Texas)" be the highest--is that right? What would come next?

I'd say popularity, acclaim and influence both in country music circles and in popular music in general. Importance is a vague term and would already be included in these three criteria.

You're definitely more knowledgeable about country than I am, so I'll believe you that.

Don't know what you define as "really early". If '30's count probably "Wildwood Flower" and "Wabash Cannonball". The 1920's songs are in the following order on acclaimedmusic.net:
1. Blue Yodel (T for Texas)
2. Wildwood Flower
3. Sally Gooden (apparently among the earliest country records ever made, there were no commercial country recordings made before 1922)
4. The Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane
5. Keep on the Sunny Side
6. The Prisoner's Song
7. The Coo Coo Bird
8. Pan American Blues
9. Keep My Skillet Good and Greasy
10. Don't Let Your Deal Go Down
11. In the Jailhouse Now
12. Country Blues

Well, I appreciate your saying that, but I don't know how true that is. I think I've got a pretty good handle on the modern era of country--basically, from "Forever And Ever, Amen" on--but the further back it goes, the less I know. Doing this list has taught me a lot about the early days of country; some of these artists, such as Eck Robertson or the Delmore Brothers, I literally didn't know of at all until now. So I really appreciate your help and input.

I like it. This is a such vast improvement to the current list. Glad you changed the version of "Man of Constant Sorrow".

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

After sleeping on it, I'm thinking I put the Kitty Wells too low. What do you think? If I move it up, how much?

Up to a top 100 now. What's too high? Too low? Missing? I did decide to include the Vernon Dalhart songs, since they seemed to be mostly aimed at a country audience. I'm not including any pop or country records that crossed over to the country charts, although I'm wondering if I should include Elvis' "I Forgot To Remember To Forget" since it topped the country chart before he had any success on the pop charts.
