Ok music accefectionados and amateurs alike. The final color to our 4th of July tribute of red, white and now, blue songs. The twist here is the groups are all associated with Southern/Country Rock music. By the way, I enjoy the guesses, knowledge, comments, and "I don't know the answer" responses from you all as much as posting this song color series. DB Now, our "chestnuts:" 1. Our first selection was a song recorded for the group's "Eat A Peach" album. It was written and sung by Dickie Betts and was one of the last recorded performances by Duane with the band. 2. You might recognize this band from another one of their hits "If You Want To Go To Heaven." The band's heyday was the early to mid 70's and today's song selection rose to # 3 on the charts in 1975. 3. This track came from the band's singer/songwriter and was recorded for the "Hurry Sundown" album. The idea for the song came about from a chord progression and song title the band member thought would fit with the music. From there, he wrote the lyrics. Songs: 1. Blue Sky 2. Jackie Blue 3. Heavenly Blues Know the bands? Any comments, or providing your own personal favorite Southern Rock favorites in your responses are appreciated. And as always, thanks for playing!

Sorry, don't know those songs. Not into country rock. Not even back in the 70's.

I think the people who liked "Jackie Blue" were probably shocked by other songs from that band (like "If You Wanna Get to Heaven"). And you may remember "Hurry Sundown" is one of my favorite southern rock songs. Good selections!

Hurray Sundown is an underappreciated LP. Not a bad song on the entire album! Still have the record

There is a movie called "My Blue Heaven" - I am not sure if that was the title of a song.

Not sure I know that movie? Oh yes, your right... It is an old Steve Martin comedy flick.

The Allman Brothers. I actually used to own "Jackie Blue," but I'm drawing a blank on it, and I have no idea about #3. Nice job! I'm usually hard to stump.

"Jackie Blue" by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. "Heavenly Blues" by The Outlaws from the Hurry Sundown album (a personal favorite of mine)! Not a bad song on there.
