Here's two top of the chart songs from Charlie Rich on his appearance in Pop Goes the Country in 1979. Although these two songs brought him fame in the mid 70's, his real love was playing blues and jazz. Tags:popgoesthecountrycharlierichmusic Added: 10th August 2007 Views: 2928 Rating: Posted By:Naomi
Charlie Rich had so much more talent than he was given credit for, he was a genius when it came to the piano, wrote and played not only country music, but blues and jazz as well. Here's one of his hits from the 70's that we hardly ever get to hear anymore. Tags:charlierichcountrybluesarkansas Added: 1st August 2007 Views: 2662 Rating: Posted By:Naomi
At this time in his life, I think Elvis was at his best. This song was widely regarded as the single that jump-started his career after his successful '68 Comeback Special. It was his eighteenth number-one single in the United States. Rolling Stone later ranked it #91 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Not bad for a country boy from Mississippi.

Here’s one of many examples of our country's ‘hometown’ moral support ads during WWII. This one features a Lockheed P-38 Lightning. This ad appeared in Life Magazine and Popular Mechanics in 1942. Go get’em Maj. Richard Bong! (Richard Ira Bong was America's all-time Ace of Aces, downing 40 enemy planes in the Pacific theater of the war while flying P-38 fighter planes. Bong was killed August 6, 1945, the day the Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, when the P-80 Shooting Star he was testing for Lockheed stalled and crashed on take-off.)
