Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Back in 1971, The Beer Bellys were on tour with a fine country singer who had a hit in 1966 with "Just Between You and Me", and in 1969 with "All I Have to Offer You Is Me". But what became his biggest hit and signature tune was 1971's "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'". Do you know which artist we were touring with?
2. The Beer Bellys once toured with a truly hard-drinking, fighting and loving country star. We felt lucky when he actually performed with us, because his exploits earned him the nickname 'No Show'. Do you know the name of the man who recorded 1980's "He Stopped Loving Her Today"?
3. While touring with The Beer Bellys I got to meet one of country music's biggest stars. He has had a lot of hit songs, but during our show he sang 1969's "Okie from Muskogee", 1973's "Everybody's Had the Blues" and 1974's "Kentucky Gambler". Do you know what star took those songs to the top of the country charts?
4. The Beer Bellys toured in 1967 with a female country singer who had a hit in 1949 singing "Jukebox Blues" with Homer and Jethro, but the highlight of the 1967 tour was a surprise. Another country star showed up, and the two of them wowed us with a performance of "Jackson" and "Long Legged Guitar Pickin' Man". Not much later, the two stars married. Do you know who this country lady-star was?
5. The Beer Bellys toured with some amazing country singers, but there was one woman who recorded a lot of songs about adultery, drinking, childbirth and other topics that we could relate to. We were lucky enough to be her back-up when she sang her 1967 hit "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)". Do you know her name?
6. When The Beer Bellys toured with one of the most influential country artists of all time, we felt lucky to hear him sing a couple of his best songs. He performed 1949's "My Bucket's Got a Hole in It" and 1951's "Cold, Cold Heart". Do you know who impressed us so much?
7. The Beer Bellys had one television appearance on a country star's own variety show. The star sang his 1961 hit, "Big Bad John", which had us all tapping our toes! While he might be better remembered for a reason other than music, do you know which star it was?
8. The Beer Bellys toured with a lot of different country artists, including a talented man who gave up the rodeo to pursue a music career. During our tour he sang a few of his earliest hits, including 1974's "I Just Started Hatin' Cheatin' Songs Today" and "It Was Always So Easy To Find An Unhappy Woman (Till I Started Looking For Mine)" and 1975's "Don't Anyone Make Love at Home Anymore". Do you know this country star's name?
9. While touring, The Beer Bellys had a few different surprises, not just with stage sets or audience reactions, but also sometimes with the other stars. In 1972, we had such a surprise - we were touring with a 13 year old who stunned everyone with her powerful performance of "Delta Dawn". Can you guess who that young singer was?
10. A music tour can get to be a bit routine, so when The Beer Bellys toured with a country singer who was also an actor, things were a bit more lively.
