Once Famous Is folk music selling out? (92* d) RE: Is folk music selling out? 13 Apr 06

They didn't have to be hits, Ron

songs like:

My Ramblin' Boy
Midnight Special
Worried Man
Marching to Pretoria
Early Morning Rain
Bury Me Beneath Willow

and many more, were not "hits" but they reached a lot of people and became folk music, almost instantly. I ask if there is 6 songs that can be named from the last 25 years that can qualify as these.

"Friends in Low Places" comes to mind by Garth Brooks. What else has become instant folk music?
