Nashville Sound, Got to play a fiddle in the band Texas or the Bakersville Sound. None of them have an artist that compares to the state of Oklahoma as a home place.
A partial list (please add).
Hank Thompson Jr.
Merle Kilgore..Born in Chickasha. Ring of fire writer.
Roy Clark...met him.
Merle Haggard Grew up near Checotah. Left in the Dust Bowl.
Johnnie Lee Wills (brother Bob? Probably Texas)
Ronnie Dunn...met him
Becky Hobbs...underrated and met her
Mel McDaniels.. Met him. A big ole brew and a little OU.
Okay, I have to be missing someone?
Others: David Gates and Leon Russell. Not country stars.
