Another favorite duet... at Outlaw Country, Sirius Ch. 63:

"Hank, let's talk about your daddy. Tell me how your mama loved that man."
"Well, just break out the bottle, Hoss. I'll tell you 'bout the driftin' cowboy band. We won't talk about the habits, just the music and the man."

I had thought that song was from the '70s, but a little research revealed it to be a top-20 hit in 1983, reaching No. 15 on the Billboard country singles airplay chart. Hard to believe it wasn't a bigger hit, but -- with a few exceptions -- there was so much good music that came out back then that almost explains that. Did you know they made a video for it too? I didn't, till about 10 minutes ago.
