Celebrity Rock: Look Down That Lonesome Road (1963)

CBS could've struck a gold mine back in the 60's with soundtracks from The Andy Griffith Show and its spin-off, Gomer Pyle, USMC, which we covered yesterday.

Andy would frequently break out a guitar and play a number now and again, often accompanying the Darlings (played by the folk singing Dillards), or, in this case, moonshiner-turned-farmer Rafe Hollister (Jack Prince), who, in the episode, "Rafe Hollister Sings", performs "Look Down That Lonesome Road".

Nearly 30 years later, Prince and Hal Smith, as Rafe & Otis, would appear on TNN's Nashville Now, and we'll have that another time.
