By 1970 when Don Gibson signed to Hickory Records, he was already a weathered music industry veteran, successful songwriter and performer. Despite enormous success on the charts, he sent 22 songs into the Top Ten between 1956 and 1974, by the end of the ’60s Don’s album sales were dwindling. Gibson signed to Hickory at the invitation of Wesley Rose who had first signed Don to a publishing deal at Acuff-Rose in 1955. With Rose in the producer chair, Gibson was ready for a second act. His first album for the label was an all covers affair, no Gibson original compositions.
