  • 1970's GREATEST HITS is still probably the finest single disc introduction to the music of Roy Acuff. From the time of his earliest recordings in the late '30s to his death in 1992--a five-decade span matched by few others in country music--Roy Acuff was one of the genre's greatest players. His mournful voice, influenced heavily by the great Jimmie Rodgers, in turn influenced generations of country singers, from Hank Williams to Randy Travis. Collecting 15 of his best tracks, from his signature tune "Wabash Cannonball" to gospel standards like "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord," and genial versions of country chestnuts like "Tennessee Waltz," GREATEST HITS shows in thrilling detail why Roy Acuff was known as The King of Country Music.
