....and what was the first country album you bought.
When I was a teenager(in the 60s) my favorite music was rock. I was visiting some friends of the family and they had a collection of Hank Williams albums. I had heard of him, but didn't really know who he was. Being musically curious, I put one on. I was blown away. I've been a fan since.
A cousin who worked for a music publisher gave me a couple of Hank Jr albums after that.....his first album SINGS THE SONGS OF HANK WILLIAMS and BALLAD OF HILLS AND PLAINS, but I didn't buy a country album until Waylon Jennings' 1971 album THE TAKER/TULSA, after hearing "Missisippi Woman" on the radio. I think I may have actually first heard that song on our FM rock station.
