Subject: RE: Help: anyone know who performed this song
During a "Hiwaymen" concert (Waylon, Willie, Kris, Johhnie.....with the pitch-challenged Jessie Coulter on piano) my ex broke up with me. Actually she waited til they finished their "hit" and did it during "Whiskey River"!

Good relationship....but better concert. They got an encore..I didn't.

Actually the practice of some old veterans getting together to make one viable act is happening again. Waylon, Bobby Bare, Jerry Reed and Mmmmel Tillis have banded together as "Old Dogs", and are recording and touring. Good on them. They are all wonderful artists who get NO AIRPLAY at all in the "New Country" market.
