Roger miller a trip in the country 1970

A Trip in the Country is the 11th album by American singer, songwriter, musician and actor Roger Miller (born Roger Dean Miller, January 2, 1936 – October 25, 1992). It reached #23 in the US Country Music chart. For the sleeve notes he wrote:


"Before the days of "Dang Me", "King of the Road" and such, I was a young, abitious song-writer walking the streets of Nashville, trying to get anybody and everybody who would to record my songs. All in all, I wrote about 150 songs for Ray Price, George Jones, Ernest Tubb and others. Some were hits, and some were not. Here are a few of the better ones. In the beginning, I created heavenly, earthly songs"

One of the songs on the album, "Tall, Tall Trees," was later recorded by Alan Jackson. The Jackson version was released as a single and became a No. 1 hit on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1995.
