    Nice try, Big Brother.
    Surely you gotta have Long Black Veil in there. I like Johnny Cash's version, but pick any of 'em.

    If by American, you mean the USA, Gord shouldn't be in your playlist, since he's Canadian.
    I'd say your list should include something from Ray Price and Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys though. And of course, Hank Williams.

    or maybe the topic should be "North American Legends". Hank is a winner BTW.
