Essential Porter Wagoner album for sale Product Description

Essential Porter Wagoner album for sale by Porter Wagoner was released Apr 29, 1997 on the BMG (distributor) label. True to its title, this is an excellent, comprehensive introduction to the work of this important country music figure. Essential Porter Wagoner songs The disc opens with a humble take on "A Satisfied Mind" that shows Wagoner's roots in bluegrass and gospel. In short order, though, we're treated to the rollicking, honky-tonk side of Wagoner, as he revels in the joys of drink as heartache antidote on "Eat, Drink and be Merry (for Tomorrow You'll Cry)" and I'll Go Down Swinging." Essential Porter Wagoner CD music contains a single disc.   ...See Full Description

Classic twangy country
Essential Porter Wagoner buy CD music Though his flashy Nudie suits (and ongoing presence at the Opry) may have subsumed his musical identity for younger audiences, there’s no doubt that Wagoner was a towering country hitmaker. Essential Porter Wagoner songs From his debut in the late ’50s until well into the ’70s his solo career yielded one-of-a-kind hits ranging from the hillbilly thrill of "Company’s Comin’," to the down-on-his-luck tale of "Skid Row Joe" and the eerie storytelling of "Carroll County Accident."

He sang songs that would become chestnuts ("Green, Green Grass of Home") and balanced his secular works with tough, faith-based tunes like "What Would You Do (If Jesus Came to Your House)." His duets with Dolly Parton (anthologized on a companion volume) produced parallel artistic and commercial success.

Throughout the late-50s and early-60s, as Nashville was smoothing the twang out of their productions, Wagoner held fast to the fiddle- and steel-backed productions with which he’d started. And despite the prevailing musical tides, he continued to have hits. RCA’s generous twenty-track collection is a great place to start one’s journey beyond the rhinestone image to find the stellar musical performer who wore the suits.
