    Quiz #11

    This singer/songwriter was born (in the 30s) in one of the four U.S. states that is a commonwealth. The state is not Virginia, Pennsylvania or Massachusetts.
    He has written more than 10 #1 hit songs with more than 25 that went top 10.

    The song I am looking for was written by him and has been covered by a lot of folks. That is the bare truth.
    The song mentions a city in Shelby County.

    I have said enough for now. If I write too much you might consider me a storyteller.
    Who is the singer and what is the song title?

    Nov-13: Hint - Get yourself to Shelby County.
    Nov-13: Another hint - see what is underlined above. This is where Google can help you.
    Nov-14: Another hint - the song title is not "How I Got To Shelby County".

    Hi Gary, I'm not much good on quizzes but Bobby Bare was born in 1935 in Ohio.

    Best regards reddevils

    Hi reddevils, It is not Bobby Bare I am looking for but you are on the right track. Bobby Bare did a cover of the song. The singer I am looking for is the person who wrote the song.
    The singer was not born in Ohio. In the USA, four states are known as Commonwealth states. I gave three (in my first post) where he wasn't born. Here is another hint. The state has a Derby.

    Sparky, Yes the singer was born in Kentucky. Now who is he and what is the song? Be sure to read what I put in for reddevils. There is a good clue there.
