Hard to determine this for SURE but here's a couple to think about:
"Rocky Top" was a Top 40 country hit in 1968 for the Osborne Brothers and a #17 hit in 1970 for Lynn Anderson. Dolly Parton, Conway Twitty and Billie Jo Spears have also recorded versions.
"Orange Blossom Special" is one of the most often performed train songs. Written by Ervin T. Rouse in 1938, he and Gordon Rouse recorded the first version as simply "The Special" in 1939. Other versions include Bill Monroe's, Johnny Cash's, and Chubby Wise's. There are likely countless others by less well-known performers.
"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" could be said to be the archetypal country song. Besides Hank Sr.'s definitive version, covers of it include those by Johnny Cash and Nick Cave, Ray Charles, Al Green, Gary Morris, B. J. Thomas, Cassandra Wilson, Dottie West, Diamanda Galás, Freddy Fender, The Raveonettes, The Mountain Goats, Terry Bradshaw, Atlas Sound, The Cowboy Junkies, punk rock cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Danish Metal band Volbeat and Wynonna Judd (for her 2009 album, Sing: Chapter 1.)
"Crazy", one of Patsy Cline's signature songs, was a big hit for her but has since been covered by many others including the song's writer Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Julio Iglesias, Kenny Rogers, Dottie West, kidneythieves, LeAnn Rimes, The Waifs and English alternative band Apartment.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Top http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_Blossom_Specia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27m_So_Lonesome_I_C...
