This week's Swing 'n' Country features a number of Ray Charles duets, from his 1984 album Friendship, with Janie Fricke, The Oak Ridge Boys, and George Jones and Chet Atkins together. The album was reached the top of Billboard's Top Country Albums and stayed on the chart for 70 weeks. It was re-released later as Ray Charles and Friends Super Hits.
Beyond that, it's three hours of good entertaining country style music. Hear the likes of Danny O'Keefe, Dottie West, David Allen Coe, Jimmie Allen, Christine Albert, The Little Willies, The Marshall Tucker Band, and there's a guy named Elvis. Plus many more fine musicians. I hope you enjoy the show. Photos; Ray Charles - Friendship; Kacey Musgraves - Follow Your Arrow; Jimmie Allen - Mercury Lane; Elvis Presley - His Latest Flame
