50 Years Ago Today, This Was Country Music’s Top Song

July 18, 1964, ‘Dang Me’ by Roger Miller would move into the number one spot on the country music charts. It was his first hit to go to the top.

The song was an example of Miller’s lighthearted humor, which brought him many more hits. The jazzy instrumental section in the song also added to the success.

And talking about the instrumentals, it was all done by session musicians Ray Edenton and Harold Bradley (guitars), Hargus “Pig” Robbins (piano), Bob Moore (bass), and Buddy Harman (drums).

Miller, in his official biography, recalled writing the song in four minutes in a Phoenix, Arizona hotel room.

The song also made it to number seven on the pop charts.
