5. Years Ago
(Donald Reid/Songs of Universal, Inc., BMI)
The Statler Brothers had a #12 country single in 1982 on this clever tale of a jilted lover’s regret and bitterness at his ex-sweetheart’s wedding. Jamie: “For my ninth birthday, my Dad bought me a boom box and a bunch of tapes by the Statler Brothers. They were my childhood heroes.” The unison and harmony chorus arrangement, borrowed from the Statlers, is rare in bluegrass music.
