The Classic Country Songs Performed
The adored couple sang much to the excitement of the audience with not less than five classic country songs. Topping the list was “Jackson” by Johnny Cash and June Carter, also a super couple in country music. The pair also performed Lynn Anderson’s “Rose Garden,” George Jones and Tammy Wynette’s “Golden Ring,” and Roger Miller’s “Chug-a-lug.” That’s not all. The Music City Walk of Fame inductees also honored Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn with their duet of “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.” Completing their medley duet list was a rendition of Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” and Crystal Gayle’s “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.” Among those legends, only Lynn was able to witness the performances together with the audience.
