Roy Drusky: Smooth Country - The Mercury Recordings (2-CD)

(Hump Head) 50 Tracks
 -
Roy Drusky, very romantic and sentimental, and smooth to the finest degree.. - one of country music's finest balladeers. This 50 track 'Best of' covers his finest songs!

When it comes to the smooth sounds of country music, Roy Drusky was the unqualified master. A crooner with a smooth, mellow baritone, he was the epitome of the classic Nashville Sound of the 1960s, leading to him being dubbed 'the Perry Como of country music'. Though he never became a major pop-crossover country artist, his influence was immeasurable, especially in the UK, where he not only toured regularly, but also found his recordings covered by singers like Val Doonican, Miki & Griff and a myriad of country club performers.

Not only was he a prolific recording artist, releasing more than 35 albums in his 50-year career, but also a talented and successful songwriter penning hit songs for Faron Young, Teresa Brewer, Kitty Wells and many others. His best known hits Long, Long Texas Road, All My hard Times, The World Is Round, If The Whole World Stopped Lovin', Where The Blue And Lonely Go and Yes, Mr Peters, a chart-topping duet with Priscilla Mitchell, are all included in this career-defining collection, along with his unique renditions of classic country and pop songs. (Alan Cackett)

Artist description "Drusky, Roy"

Roy Drusky

Another

Roy Drusky was in Minnesota when he was first noticed, and his voice didn't have a distinctive southern twang, so many assumed that he was from up that way, but in fact he was born in Atlanta, Georgia on June 22, 1930. After his discharge from the Navy in 1950, he went to Emory University to study animal science, but dropped out after a year to become a professional musician. His first record for Starday in 1955 led to a Columbia Records contract the following year, but the records went nowhere. In 1957, Texas Bill Strength asked Roy to join him on KEVE, Minneapolis, and Roy was still in Minneapolis when Webb Pierce breezed through town promoting his movie, 'Buffalo Guns.' Roy told Webb's sidekick, Sonny Burnette, that he'd written some songs, and Burnette carried Alone With You back to Nashville. It became a hit for Faron Young, and Roy swiftly packed up and moved to Nashville. With Alone With You still high in the charts, Drusky found Nashville a welcoming place. Columbia had dropped him so he moved onto Pierce's label, Decca Records, and, starting with Another, his singles began charting. A performing rights society, SESAC, gave him a day job managing their local office. Another was bland fare, and it was clear that Decca's Owen Bradley saw Drusky as his answer to Jim Reeves.
