March Retro Country Rewind #MewsicMovesMe

Last year we premiered our mewsic feature "Retro Country Rewind," a look back at favorite songs that hit #1 during that month from 30, 35, 40 plus years ago. In this new year we'll be delving into #1 hits from 1970, 1975, 1980, and so on. Let's take a look at March for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...


50 Years Ago - 1970, The Fightin' Side of Me, Merle Haggard

My second favorite Haggard song, taking a backseat only to If We Make It Through December...



45 Years Ago - 1975, Linda On My Mind, Conway Twitty

One of Conway's biggest hits. Who was this mysterious Linda he wrote about? He would never tell...



40 Years Ago - 1980, I'd Love to Lay You Down, Conway Twitty

I had no choice but to choose two Conway songs this month, as this is another of his most beloved classics. I love the audience's reaction in this video from an award show. Their screaming had him chuckling through the song...



35 Years Ago - 1985, Seven Spanish Angels, Ray Charles & Willie Nelson

Story songs were the theme of this hop a few weeks ago. This would've been a great addition to any playlist.


30 Years Ago - 1990, Chains, Patty Loveless

This is the song that turned me into a huge Patty Loveless fan when I was a teenager.


We hope you enjoyed our choices this month! 
Let us know if you have a favorite.

Thank you for your kind words for Arthur's crossing the rainbow bridge. Can't say a lot about country music, I don't hear it very often. Beautiful photo of mudpie.

Guess what? We were watching an old re-run of Hee Haw with our mom last night and guess who was on it? Conway Twitty! We thought of you girls.
