'80s Country 1982-1984 is a great combination of traditional, pop and bluegrass country. During 1982-1984, country music was still riding high with the Urban Cowboy craze and the continuous country-pop crossover popularity of Juice Newton, Dolly Parton and Ronnie Milsap. This CD includes then-newcomer John Anderson's hit "Swingin." Ricky Skaggs shows off his pickin' ability on "Heartbroke," and there's also the smooth-sounding "Talk to Me" by the urban cowboy himself, Mickey Gilley.
