T-R-O-U-B-L-E was a hit for Travis Tritt but Elvis still had a bigger hit with it.

I think those three cover it.

I dont think it was a hit single but it has appeared on records that have sold a lot of units. Allow me to direct you to one of your favourite sites..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Christian.

I recall playing a version of Mr. Songman by Slim Whitman back in the day. Don't recall it becoming a "hit" as it were, but we played it in light rotation for a short time.

Elvis wasn't the first to record it, but he had "Spanish Eyes" on his "Good Times" album. It was later a #8 hit for Willie Nelson and Julio Iglesias in 1988.

Is anyone else surprised that ''Don't cry daddy'' and ''Kentucky rain'' never became popular cover songs for country artists in the 1980s and 1990s.

Because I always was.

They were good songs. Which country artists recorded them?

No one has to my knowledge.

That's my point you'd think country artists would've covered them but none of them did.
