Tom T. Hall was Nashville's most popular storyteller from the 1960s to the 1970s. From his first Bluegrass band, the Kentucky Travelers, to the 1968 hit song "Harper Valley P.T.A." (as garnished by the sweet vocal stylings of Jeannie C. Riley), Hall's rich narratives have intelligently embellished his compassionate Country Pop and Country Folk songs. After penning a string of hits, Hall covered Rudy Vallee's 1934 hit song, "P.S. I Love You" in 1984 shortly before retiring for a decade. He returned in 1996 with an album entitled Songs from Sopchoppy.
