So, in the same vein as my posts on traditional hymns and spiritual songs, this is a standing record of country standards that I've worked on.

As before, my goals are:

  • to list every LyricWikia version of the song as a cover on the page of the original lyricis;
  • to link every version back to the article for the original recording;
  • where the song is on Wikipedia, to ensure that there is a Wikipedia-embedded link in every version of the song;
  • to ensure that the original songwriter is credited in the CreditBox for every version of the song.
