Some history on a popular Country song
"I've Been Everywhere" is a song which was written by Australian country singer Geoff Mack in 1959, and made popular by Lucky Starr in 1962.

The song (as originally written) listed Australian towns. It was later adapted by Hank Snow for North American (predominantly United States) toponyms and by John Hore (later known as John Grenell) with New Zealand toponyms (1966).

The song was a number 1 hit in Country Music in November 1962 in the United States for the recording artist Hank Snow.[1] The song was also recorded by Lynn Anderson (USA 1970), Asleep at the Wheel (USA 1973), Johnny Cash (USA 1996), Chip Dockery, Ted Egan, Little Jan Buckner of Wendy Bagwell & The Sunliters (USA 1972), the "Farrelly Brothers" from the television series The Aunty Jack Show (Australia 1974, a parody version), John Grenell (NZ 1966), Mike Ford (Canada, 2005), Rolf Harris (UK 1963), Clifton Jansky, The Sunny Cowgirls and the Statler Brothers. Harvey Reid also included the song in his Dreamer or Believer album.

Original singer Lucky Starr released an EP called "Lucky's Been Everywhere," which contained four different versions: United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand, and Australia (Festival Records FX-10.485 (Australia)).

I keep meaning to post in here... lots of good stuff posted so far.

I love many of the great "old" country artists. Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn to name a few and still enjoy listening to their music and do so often. I admit I've been out of touch with the more modern country music scene but here's a few of my more "recent" faves.

This is maybe more folky than country but still... a great duet

I discovered Doc Walker when someone I used to work with several years ago starred in this video.
