Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered.

People often thing this bro-country thing is a challenge against classic country music. Truth be known, artists have been doing this for quite some time. Eddie Rabbitt, for example, one of the most innovative country artists of our time. Although he had many traditional country hits, he became known for his cross-over hits with the pop and rockabilly genres.

This 1980 hit demonstrates one of these cross-over tunes and is still quite the jam today.
