What Are The Five Most Important Country Records Ever?
Originally published on Fri April 12, 2013 2:03 pm
At World Cafe, we recently asked Stephen Bowen of the Ernest Tubb Record Shop in Nashville, Tenn., to name the five most important country records of all time. The store was founded by country pioneer Ernest Tubb, who had a hit with the early honky-tonk song "Walking the Floor Over You." More than 65 years later, the shop is still known as a hub for country-music fans.
Bowen polled the store's online community to help choose these tracks.
