Love Me Forever is an album by Wanda Jackson, released in 1963.

AllMusic Review:
While Jackson would eventually come to be most widely known as an early rockabilly pioneer, these recordings date from the era in which she had turned to the country market, slightly but not heavily tilted toward the Nashville country-pop style. That might disappoint fans of her earlier gangbusters like "Fujiyama Mama," but actually, these are quite strong performances, if with barely a hint of her raunchier roots. Love Me Forever, unusually for a popular artist of the early '60s, contained no tracks that appeared on singles.

It sounds influenced, whether consciously or unconsciously, by the classy Nashville country-pop successes Brenda Lee was churning out by the handful during the period, particularly in the production and arrangements. Yet Jackson does handle the style, and the material, quite deftly, putting enough of her own stamp on the proceedings to steer them clear of accusations of a Lee imitation. If there's any mild overall flaw, it's that the material wasn't the most adventurous, including some well-known songs like "Please Love Me Forever" (a recent hit for Cathy Jean & the Roommates, and later a hit for Bobby Vinton), Willie Nelson's "Funny How Time Slips Away," and Ivory Joe Hunter's "Since I Met You Baby."
Wanda Jackson (age 81) is a retired American singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist who had success in the mid-1950s and 1960s as one of the first popular female rockabilly singers, and a pioneering rock-and-roll artist. She is known to many as the "Queen of Rockabilly".

Jackson began her professional career while still attending Capitol Hill High School in Oklahoma City after being discovered by Hank Thompson in 1954, who heard her singing on a local radio station. She recorded "You Can't Have My Love", a duet with Thompson's bandleader, Billy Gray. The song reached number 8 on the country chart. Jackson asked Capitol to sign her but was turned down by producer Ken Nelson, who told her, "Girls don't sell records." She signed with Decca Records instead.

After graduating from high school, Jackson began to tour with her father as manager and chaperon. She often shared the bill with Elvis Presley, who encouraged her to sing rockabilly. She briefly dated Presley while touring. Jackson's stage outfits in these years were often designed by her mother. Unlike the traditional clothing worn by female country music singers of the time, she wore fringed dresses, high heels and long earrings. She has claimed she was the first woman to put "glamour into country music."

She recorded with then-unknown Buck Owens. With a unique vocal style and upbeat material, Jackson created some of the most influential rock and roll of the time. She was headlining concerts with her own band, which she dubbed the Party Timers. Prominently featured were the pianist Big Al Downing and the guitarist Roy Clark, who was virtually unknown at the time.

She had a resurgence in popularity in the 1980s among rockabilly revivalists in Europe and younger Americana fans. Cyndi Lauper acknowledged Jackson's classic rockabilly records were a major influence and inspiration for her during this period, and Jackson's fans also included a new generation of country music female vocalists, among them Rosanne Cash, Pam Tillis, Jann Browne, and Rosie Flores. Jackson recorded a duet with Browne. In 1995 she sang two duets with Flores and then embarked on a tour with her.

In 2009, she teamed up with Jack White to record The Party Ain't Over. The album, released in 2011, marked Jackson's first charting on the Billboard Hot 200 LP chart. The album broke the record for being the oldest female vocalist (at age 73) to make the chart, previously held by Mae West. She performed with Jack White on both the Late Show with David Letterman and Conan.

In 2009, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the category Early Influence.

The Best of the Best of "Little" Jimmy Dickens is a compilation album by Jimmy Dickens, released in 1978.

James Cecil Dickens (December 19, 1920 – January 2, 2015), better known by his stage name, Little Jimmy Dickens, was an American country music singer and songwriter famous for his humorous novelty songs, his small size (4'11"), and his rhinestone-studded outfits (which he is given credit for introducing into country music live performances).

Dickens recorded many novelty songs, including "Country Boy", "A-Sleeping at the Foot of the Bed", and "I'm Little but I'm Loud". His song "Take an Old Cold Tater (And Wait)" inspired Hank Williams to nickname him Tater. Later, telling Dickens he needed a hit, Hank Williams wrote "Hey Good Lookin'" in only 20 minutes while on a plane with Dickens and Minnie Pearl. A week later Williams recorded the song himself, jokingly telling Dickens, "That song's too good for you!"

He became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1948. He discovered future Country Music Hall of Famer Marty Robbins at a Phoenix, Arizona television station while on tour with the Grand Ole Opry road show. In 1964, he became the first country artist to circle the globe while on tour.

He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983.

Toward the end of his life, Dickens made appearances in a number of music videos by the country musician and fellow West Virginia native Brad Paisley.

Dickens was hospitalized after a stroke on December 25, 2014, days after his last appearance on the Opry to mark his birthday. He died of cardiac arrest on January 2, 2015, at the age of 94, the oldest member of the Grand Ole Opry.

A Crystal Christmas was the first holiday album by Crystal Gayle, released in 1986.

Crystal Gayle (age 68; born Brenda Gail Webb, January 9, 1951) began her career in the 1960s performing in the background of her siblings' bands, most notably Loretta Lynn.

After graduating from Wabash High School in 1970, Brenda signed with Decca Records, her sister's label. However, since there was already a singer named Brenda Lee with Decca Records, she was asked to change her name. Loretta Lynn suggested the name "Crystal" after seeing a sign for the Krystal hamburger restaurant chain.

In 1977, Gayle achieved her biggest success with the single "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue". The song topped the Billboard country chart, crossed over to the top five of the Billboard Hot 100, and became a major international hit.

Gayle has won a Grammy Award, five Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards, two Country Music Association (CMA) awards, and three American Music Awards. Rolling Stone ranked her among the 100 greatest country artists of all time and CMT ranked her in the 40 greatest women of country music. Gayle has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2017.

Merry Christmas to You is the fourteenth album and first Christmas album by Reba McEntire, released in 1987.

It is her last album to bear her surname on the front cover. The album was certified double platinum.

AllMusic Review: Merry Christmas to You is (naturally) a traditional Christmas album for Reba McEntire, mostly featuring textured acoustic guitar and light percussion (several selections were arranged by McEntire). Alongside tender holiday classics like "Away in a Manger," "O Holy Night," "Silent Night," and "On This Day," she reaches deep into her song bag for "The Christmas Guest" by Grandpa Jones.

Emory Gordy, Jr. (husband of Patti Loveless) - bass guitar
Mac McAnally - acoustic guitar
Vince Gill - background vocals

Songs of James Hendricks is the first solo album by James Hendricks, released in 1968.

James Richard Hendricks (age 79; born February 10, 1940) is an American guitarist and folk musician. Hendricks began playing guitar and lap steel guitar in his youth, and began performing publicly while working as a teacher in Omaha, Nebraska in the early 1960s. One of his shows was attended by Cass Elliot, who invited Hendricks to join her and Tim Rose in the New York folk group The Big 3...
The group was successful playing The Bitter End, touring with comedian Bill Cosby and appearing on The Tonight Show.

Hendricks was married to Cass Elliot in 1963. In 1964, Elliot and Hendricks started the folk group The Mugwumps, which included Denny Doherty, John Sebastian and Zal Yanovsky. The group lasted for eight months before Sebastian and Yanovsky formed The Lovin' Spoonful and Doherty and Elliot would become one-half of The Mamas & the Papas. The marriage of Hendrick and Cass Elliot was annulled in 1968.

Hendricks moved to Los Angeles and formed The Lamp of Childhood. He improved his songwriting while with the band, and after leaving it wrote "Summer Rain", a hit for Johnny Rivers, and "Long Lonesome Highway", theme song of the television series Then Came Bronson.

AllMusic Review:
Hendricks' debut solo album is tepid country-rock, closer to country than to rock. It's not quite Nashville country, though, despite the presence of leading session musicians Pete Drake, Jerry Reed, and Kenny Buttrey. It's easygoing, somnambulant music, and the songs are unmemorable. It doesn't help that Hendricks does not impress much as a vocalist, with a thin, trembly voice.

The tunes with something of a good-time rock bounce are worse than the slower, more reflective ones, like "Sunshine Showers," "Lily of the Valley," and "Look to Your Soul," though those aren't outstanding either. Hendricks' "Summer Rain," which had been a hit single for Johnny Rivers (who produced this LP), really stands out as a melody that sticks in your brain, unlike the others on this release.
Hendricks eventually moved to Nashville, Tennessee in the 1970s and began touring with family and writing contemporary Christian music. Hendricks plays guitar, mandolin, dobro and autoharp and has recorded over 50 albums spanning a variety of styles, mainly Americana, country, and contemporary Christian.
