Hank Snow had three hits in 1965, but none of them are on Sings Your Favorite Country Hits. The album was aimed at Snow’s fans, who would happily consume his versions of recent hits and older favorites because they enjoyed his voice and were familiar with many, if not most, of the songs. The then-“current” hit songs (all from 1963) include “Six Days on the Road,” “Mary Ann Regrets,” and “From a Jack to a King,” while the oldies feature Marvin Rainwater’s “Gonna Find Me a Bluebird”; the ever-popular “White Silver Sands”; and Jimmy Dean’s first hit, “Bumming Around.” This kind of album package, consisting of a name artist covering well-known songs, was common in the ’60s, being easy to produce and a solid seller that pleased the artist’s followers. The absence of original material would be seen as a fault by many latter-day critics, but Sings Your Favorite Country Hits was created for a certain purpose and, in that regard, is a success.
