1973 was an important year in the history of country music. The genre continued to progress as a commercial entity, as reflected by Billboard's decision to increase the number of positions in its Hot Country Singles chart, extending the rankings from 75 to 100. This was the first year Willie Nelson hosted his annual Fourth of July picnic. The Dean Martin Show became Dean Martin Presents Music Country for the summer.

7/10. Classic Country is my fave. Funny how I can hear a country artist/group from the 60's-80's (Willie, Waylon, Merle, Loretta, Dolly, Conway, Patsy, Alabama , etc) & instantly know who is singing but when I listen to all the hotshot new tattooed & pierced country 'artists' I cannot name them or tell their voices apart & I listen daily.

Correct name for question 10 is "If we make through December", not "the year", dealing with economic issues (job loss) at Christmas time. Another great Haggard tune!

5 of 10. Practically all guesses, and a few I had heard of. In the early 70's, my music choices were transitioning from Top 40 bubblegum hits to what is now, classic rock. Country and Western wasn't even close to my radio dial at the time!

2/10... regularly wore a Waylon Jennings t-shirt in high school too. '73 was a little before my time with country though.

I have zero knowledge about country music. However, I managed to get four correct answers by guessing.
