(On singing with string-based orchestras to create what became known as "the Nashville sound") I got to thinking, if I just took the same kind of songs I`d been singing and added violins to them, I`d have a new sound.....They [the country music establishment] cussed me, but the disc jockeys grabbed it.....The artists began to say, "Aww, he`s left us". Then, within a year, they were doing it!
