Oct. 3: My friend and Nashville Tennessean senior editor Knight Stivender posted a link to this audio slide show last night on Facebook. It’s a nice look (and listen) at several country legends as their careers progressed, and I thought it would make a nice 3 Chords a Day post.

Introducing the gallery is Peter Cooper, Tennessean music writer and a singer-songwriter of special talent and growing fame. The slide show accompanies this story by Peter.

Unfortunately, the music here is clips, not full songs. Sorry about that. But keep coming back to 3 Chords a Day, and you’ll eventually hear the complete versions of these songs, or others like them.
