Country Blast From The Past: ’74, An Album For The Ladies
Tommy Overstreet was one of the biggest country music star's in the world in the 1970's. I mean, this great artist was on fire!
In fact, from 1971-1975 Tommy had ten...count 'em, ten...Top Ten hits! There virtually wasn't a week when Tommy wasn't somewhere near the top of the chart, and another great hit was on the way. And then, in 1974, the Oklahoma City native did something unique and special.
Tommy released an album called Woman, Your Name Is My Song, and it was literally the truth.
Eleven tracks on this great classic album and each featured a woman's name. From '(Jeannie Marie) You Were A Lady' to 'Carolyn' to 'Laura (What's He Got That I Ain't Got' to 'Goodbye Rosey'. He continued on with 'Sundown Mary', 'Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town' and 'Gwen (Congratulations). Keeping the theme moving along, Tommy added 'Smile At Me Sweet Nancy', 'Ann (Don't Go Runnin'), Sweet Caroline' and 'Polk Salad Annie'.
Eleven for the ladies with Jeannie Marie and Gwen Top 5 hits.
