Could be ? Could have been Elvis. Bands like the Eagles, the Outlaws and Marshall Tucker that were played on rock stations in the 70ís now would be Country.

many say Johnny Cash. bottom line is country and rock can trace there roots to blues and blue grass. Theres been country in rock since its inception. To me country music tells ad story about how the working man lives and thinks and the 60s and 70s rock that's so much like country was just a new generation with a new story. The 80s were just a blight on the history of music. The real sad thing to me is the new fad of rap being integrated into country. Greatest country groups and singers ever? In my opinion hank Williams (sr) patsy cline, Johnny Cash, Clint Black, Crosby stills nash and young and the eagles and lynard skinner .

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!

CCR was at it in the mid 60s. Elvis even before that, but he had his own style. I don't consider Rap as being
any kind of music. There was a lot of Motown bands and music that was good, but Rap ruined that as well. Some of the artist back in the 1960s didn't consider themselves as either rock or country. They prefered to
call themselves Folk singers.

i've never considered any rock music as country, although i don't
consider much of anything on the airwaves these days as country.
what i consider country music wouldn't be played on any decent
rock station (that right there's an irony) because it would obviously
be "too country-fied " for them to play on a rock station.
folk is and was folk. rock-a-billy was and still is. hard rock/metal
still is what it is and was. so on and so on.
if only rap "music" would fade away like disco, i think things might
be a lot better all around.
just me, i rarely listen to any "music" on the radio since they seldom
play anything i would listen to.
most stations around here have about 20 songs they play over and
over and mix 'em up every now and then

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Yea, here too. My dipole picks up some good FM stations. But they are far away.

I like CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels Band. The Oak Ridge Boys, Alabama kinda did some crossing over.

It's all good to me as long as they ain't guys sporting pink hair and high heels screaming "We are the Champions" when really they aren't even close!

i remember when KISS was first popular, and all those
yoyos were saying that they were a "satanic" band



and playing records backwards, and all that doo-doo

Yes they did, and Alabama did a very good job of it.
