Looking for some popular rock songs, that have been covered by country artist.?

Lokoing for some good rock songs that have been covered by country artist. I know all about the Skynard Friends/Eagles/ and other tribute albums that have been put out. Looking for more of the Hidden ones many people dop not know about Examples: Lori Morgan did (Faithfully and Open Arms), David Kersh did (Wonderful Tonight), Chris Cagle did (Wanted Dead or Alive)

Does anyone know others?


Those are exactly the kinds of songs I was looking for, please keep them coming! Thanks

Update 2:

They need to be songs from CD's something I can download from amazon or itunes, Brittney a couple of yours I can not find.

    "Knock Three Times" - Billy Crash Craddock (cover of Tony Orlando & Dawn)

    "Only the Lonely" - Sonny James (cover of Roy Orbison) (nearly everything Sonny did was a cover)

    "Hello Mary Lou" - Statler Brothers (cover of Ricky Nelson)

    "Bad Moon Rising" - Emmylou Harris (cover of CCR) (Emmy's done a lot of rock covers)

    "Oh Atlanta" - Alison Krauss (cover of Bad Company)
