Btw, blues and country came from the same place.....poor black folks and poor whites folks in the South.
One of country's greatest legends, Hank Williams, was influenced by a black street singer named Rufus 'Tee Tot' Payne.

""Tee Tot is best known for being a mentor to
Hank Williams, Sr. Rufus Payne met Hank Williams Sr. when Hank was eight years old and legend has it he would come around and play Hank's guitar, showing Hank how to improvise chords. His influence in exposing Williams to blues and other African American influences helped Williams successfully fuse
hillbilly , folk and blues into his own unique style, which in turn expanded and exposed both white and black audiences to the differing sounds."

And Hank Jr.....

You can hear the soul and country influences in all 3 versions....Or, at least, I can

And that Hank Jr version is killer to me....Has a little Hank Sr, Ray Charles, and Jerry Lee influence in it.

Here's a verse from the same song that has that lonesome sound in it....

@MrWalkSoftly: Country (also called country and western) is a genre of popular music that takes its roots from genres such as blues and old-time music, and various types of American folk music including Appalachian, Cajun, and the cowboy Western music styles of Red Dirt, New Mexico, Texas country, and Tejano. Its popularized roots originate in the Southern United States of the early 1920s.
