Vern Gosdin: Ain’t Nothing Wrong

Found cassette in a box. Vern Gosdin: Chiseled in Stone. Couldn’t remember when purchased and didn’t remember ever hearing it. First exposure to Vern Gosdin being on Gene Clark with the Gosdin Brothers. First solo album by lead singer of The Byrds, released in 1967, where he credits country contributors directly. One of the first rock albums, if not the first rock album from the 60s, to specifically be made with country artists.

So always remembered Gosdin name, even if not appreciating much more.

Find out that Chiseled in Stone was released in 1987, and that Gosdin co-wrote most of the songs, principally with singer-songwriter Hank Cochran, who regarded his experience working with Gosdin on the album as being one of his fondest memories.

Can’t get much of this, or much of this detail, through a music stream.

Written by Vern Gosdin (1934-2009), Hank Cochran (1935-2010) and Dean Dillon (b. 1955):

We’re still holding on
We just ain’t holdin’ tight
