Let's Go To The Hop

Here are some tunes sure to put a smile on your Saturday. They can all be found on a compilation called "Country Hop 1959-1963". It's possible you may recognise the third song.

"Big Cowboy" - Devvy Davenport

"You Can't Pick A Winner Every Time" - Bobby Nelson

"A Hard Day's Night" - Johnny Littrell

That is one of many country versions of Beatles songs out there, but it wasn't just a one way street.
