celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sweetheart of the Rodeo

See The Byrds co-founders Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman, along with country all-star Marty Stuart and his amazing band live in concert!

With one mighty swing of the axe, The Byrds changed not only the face of rock and roll but country music, as well, with their sixth album, 1968's Sweetheart Of The Rodeo. Featuring a repertoire of country classics by the Louvin Brothers ("The Christian Life") and Merle Haggard ("Life In Prison"); as well as Depression-era ballads (Woody Guthrie's "Pretty Boy Floyd"); honky tonk weepers cut by George Jones ("You're Still On My Mind"); and Dylan tracks "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" and "Nothing Was Delivered"; Sweetheart marks the first time an established rock band played authentic country music, and subsequently became the group's most influential release.

The album has proved to be a landmark, serving not only as a blueprint for Hillman's the Flying Burrito Brothers, but also for the entire seminal 1970s Los Angeles country rock movement. The album was also influential on the outlaw country and new traditionalist movements, as well as the alternative country genre of the 1990s and 2000s.
