Rock and pop music have their nostalgia radio stations - your "golden oldies", classic rock, all 80's, etc., stations - and plenty of them. What about country western music? I'm sure such stations exist (and this is something I could easily check), since there are stations for pretty much everything, but I'm also curious to know how common they are. Also, are there different nostalgia categories for it, e.g. 50's and 60's, 80's and on, etc.?
I'd like to surprise my husband tomorrow with a Spotify playlist of every country music song I can find that mentions catfish in the lyrics. [more inside]
It's a country song. The only lyric I remember is something along the lines of "Cash has the lick America loves". Google is failing me.
Yee haw! Or maybe Hee Haw... Or maybe just the Mandrell Show... I'm trying to find a clip or a photo of the three Mandrell Sisters performing a skit while in personal spas. Is there any evidence that this actually aired or is it an imagined memory? I'd love your help locating proof.
I was in Ernie Tubbs Record Shop in Nashville a couple weeks ago and they were playing a song whose only lyric I can remember is something like "one of those nights when I miss Lester Black." The lyric was repeated often as part of the refrain. It was a country song, it sounded sort of old and had a melancholic feel to it. That is, unfortunately, all I can remember. I can't get that lyric out of my head and I really want to know what song it is. Google hasn't been any help. Please satiate my curiosity, it is driving me nuts!

I remember hearing once that someone in the audience at Johhny Cash's Folsom Prison performance - as a prisoner - was inspired by it to go on to a successful career as a singer/songwriter. Is this apocryphal? If not, who was it? Someone mentioned to me Waylon Jennings, but I don't think it's him. Google is inconclusive.

Can anyone recommend some alt.country? I remember I had a mix cd a few years ago that had some really nice stuff on it (Lucinda Williams singing "Passionate Kisses" really stands out in my memory) but I have no idea where to start. I really like the female vocalist aspect, but I am open to all suggestions. Bonus if I can snag it on iTunes.
