Roy Acuff Jr. - Wabash Cannonball 7"

The son of Roy Acuff covering one of his father's best known song "Wabash Cannonball," it's not that bad, it did take me a little bit to get used to his voice. He does make the song his own, and I don't mean that in a bad way, it's just a little different from the way his dad did the song.

"Baby Just Said Goodbye" is the flipside, and I have to say it reminds me of something that Gram Parsons would have done. There's a country feel to it but it also has a little bit of rock and roll to it, which is pretty good.

According to what I fan find on it really doesn't seem like Roy Acuff Jr. had much of a recording career, which is too bad because I think he had some talent, maybe not as much as his famous father, but still pretty good if you ask me.

Released on Hickory Records of Nashville, TN
