In this episode, and back by popular demand, we're again featuring the most successful commercial album for Texas icon Johnny Bush: You Gave Me A Mountain (1969). Bush's career, as detailed by Pete Drake on the rear of the vinyl album, had hit stumbling blocks at every turn, and had been turned by down by most of the major labels of the day. Drake, though, heard something in his voice which "just needed the right song". So the steel-guitar maestro signed the unknown Bush, and the one-time drummer for Ray Price's Cherokee Cowboys launched himself to the brink of stardom with this album - the title track going to #7 on the charts. But overall, it must be said that this is one of the finest examples of why Johnny Bush is regarded as a Texas honky tonk icon - the notes that he hit are mountainous, sure enough.
