orangegrayline Lonesome Country RoadWhen asked about his favorite song on the Lonesome County Road album, Ron Lee  (a happy fan) said, “Really hard to choose. On a scale of 1 to10 they all fall in the 9-10 range. I would say “Beyond the Western Sky” edges to the top. The album itself rates a solid 10.” orangegrayline
