Social media reviews :
A legend. His phrasing and range at 2:00 is evidence of this man’s vocal prowess. Vern and George Jones may be the only two country singers in history with such expressive vocal talents.
I’d listen to ole Vern singing the phone book
This is REAL country music. “Every night I run a needle through Walking the Floor” the BEST!!
I like this version better than the studio version
I could listen to Verns songs all day long he is so AWESOME!!!!!!!
