Harlan Howard is considered the greatest country music songwriter ever. And why not! He's written hundreds of great country tunes, and scores of them have reached the top of the country music charts.

Harlan Howard songs have been recorded by the biggest names in country music history, everyone from Ray Price to Patsy Cline, Buck Owens to the Judds, Conway Twitty and Willie Nelson and...well, name a country music artist and chances are somewhere along they way they've recorded the words and music of Harlan Howard.

This weekend Grand Ole Opry star Jim Ed Brown highlights the music written by the legendary Harlan Howard. Join Jim Ed in his salute to this country music icon on "Country Music Greats" Saturday night at 10 with an encore show Sunday afternoon at 4 on AM 1000 Classic Country KXRB and at KXRB.com.
