My father keeps his radio tuned to an oldies radio station with a really short playlist. In my limited listening (maybe two hours the entire trip, probably closer to half that), I head three songs twice* and this one three times. Dad and I were both familiar with the song**, though neither of us knew who sang it. I looked it up on my phone (Dad was driving) and saw it was Tanya Tucker. I’ve heard of Tucker, of course, but didn’t know much of anything about her. So I went to YouTube to see if there were any videos and was surprised by what she looked like. Then I saw that she was 14 when the video was recorded. So, less weird. You don’t expect the gap in the teeth, though.
* - “King of the Road”, “Seven Year Ache”, and “Ruby (Don’t Take Your Love To Town)” being the other three.
** - It’s covered quite a bit. It has that catchy refrain that’s a favorite of artists that like to switch songs in between the second and third verse of whatever their song is, or include at the end of a show where they are switching songs constantly.
