Country History Update

This year 2 Country artists that aren't household names died: Vern Gosdin and Hank Locklin. I've been meaning to pick up a Locklin comp for years and his death made me do just that. I also consulted John Morthland's seminal 1984 Country Music book to see if my Country section needs some beefing up. Surprisingly the answer was no. I'm still missing a few Country names, but that's because there stuff is out of print (which means that the only stuff out there are re-recordings long a fixture in Country).
