I've been listening to a bunch of the real old stuff recently: Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, Don Gibson, Lefty Frizzell, and so on. For the most part it still seems to me Hank Williams was head and shoulders above everybody in terms of songwriting - they've each got some good stuff and a couple of songs that really stand the test, but none of them can boast two dozen + absolute stone cold classic songs. Cash is right there obviously, but in the context of this other stuff even he seems a bit like a Johnny Come Lately. I guess that's why Hank is the one who is still a household name, but there must be more. Who am I missing? Looking for song recs, '47-'65, true classic country. I don't have a deep grounding in the era so I know there's a lot I could be missing.
