Porter Wagoner

Porter Wagoner has accumulated more than 30 top ten hits, but, more importantly, alongside those hits, he ploughed new ground as a prime Nashville developer of the ‘concept album.’ Over the years he released some of the most inventive and thought-provoking albums ranging from bluegrass and gospel collections to the highly acclaimed THE COLD HARD FACTS OF LIFE, SOUL OF A CONVICT and CONFESSIONS OF A BROKEN MAN, releases that dealt with the seamier side of humanity. Long before it was fashionable, he raised the plight of the American mid-west farming community with THE FARMER, and looked alcoholism directly in the face with BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE and DOWN IN THE ALLEY. Several of Porter’s solo hits featured on the first disc here are taken from those concept albums including Skid Row Joe, I Just Came To Smell The Flowers and his original hit version of Green, Green Grass Of Home, which Tom Jones turned into an international pop success.
A stalwart of the Grand Ole Opry for years, he was deservedly inducted into the hallowed Country Music Hall Of Fame in 2002. But in many respects, it was his partnership with Dolly Parton featured on CD 2 that helped to raise Porter Wagoner’s profile.
