Perry was among the first of the great pop singers
to discover the simple beauty and honesty of country music.
Here's another beauty . . .

Some of Country music's biggest writers got together to produce this whopping hit, which Charlie Rich propelled onto everyone's list of favourites in 1974. Rory Bourke joined the veterans Billy Sherrill and Norro Wilson in its composition. Sherrill's hits include Almost Persuaded, Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad, and Stand By Your Man, one of Tammy Wynette's greatest hits. Norro Wilson is a writer, record producer, and, on occasion, a singer and comedian. Among his hits are Good Things and A Picture of Me ( Without You ). The Most Beautiful Girl, a Grammy-winning song and record, has become one of the most performed songs in Country music.
