Lyrics
Perry and country music, together again. A strong melody, a straightforward lyric . . .
sung by a master. They don't come any better!
 

'Feeling . . . I think Country music is the world's greatest for that', Perry told reporters following his first sessions in Nashville. 'The guys feel what they're saying. I think that's why it's lasted so long. Feeling is very much a part of Country of Nashville. I try to feel what I'm singing.' That's probably why Perry chose to sing Behind Closed Doors. It was a huge hit for Country singer Charlie Rich, was voted Best Song of the Year by the Country Music Association in 1974, and won a Grammy for Best Country Song.
