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.

Vern Gosdin was a country singer/songwriter with nearly 20 hits on the Country charts between 1977 and 1990, including "Set 'em Up Joe."

He was nicknamed 'The Voice' for his amazing knack of utilizing his expressive, low baritone voice -- similar to that of Josh Turner or Cody Johnson today!
