Lynn Anderson: “I’ve Been Everywhere”
LP: Uptown Country Girl, 1970 | BUY

Skeeter Davis: “There’s a Fool Born Every Minute”
RCA Victor records single, 1968 | BUY

Hey there y’all : today’s selections come through the courtesy of two of my favorite country singers. For a time it appeared that Lynn Anderson had it all — beauty pageant looks, talented songwriter ma (Liz), and she was a champion equestrian to boot! The tongue-twisting “I’ve Been Everywhere” dates from Lynn’s late ’60s tenure with Chart Records. Later on she’d move on to huge crossover success with “Rose Garden,” but I kind of like the rowdy, sexy image she projected on her earlier stuff. Pert Skeeter Davis might accurately be interpreted as a countrified Lesley Gore; most of her music consists of winsome vocals double-tracked over cushiony, Girl Group-ish productions (thanks to Nashville legend Chet Atkins). Her 1968 hit “There’s a Fool Born Every Minute” is no exception, an interesting contrast of downbeat lyrics and perky instrumentation. A new Skeeter CD comp, The Pop Hits Collection Vol. 2, has just been released on Taragon Records.

One Thought on “Gruesome Twosome: Country Cuties Edition

  1. Wow, Lynn Anderson sure does look like she’s channeling Elizabeth Montgomery on that album cover! With the sassy look on her face, it’s as if she could be auditioning for Serena on “Bewitched”!
