Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner- Just Someone I Used To Know
It's a stranger now.
Porter Wagoner gives me the creeps. I didn't like him from the moment I first saw him performing on television. That impression didn't change when I finally made the pilgrimage to the Grand Ole Opry and saw Porter in person. Conversely, I've always adored Dolly Parton. Doesn't everyone? But give Porter credit for allowing Dolly to become a star. This single was recorded on April 21, 1969 and reached #5 on the country charts in 1970, the year that Dolly had her first big hit as a solo artist.
