Cash Box Chart Scrapers: Byron Berline and Sundance (1976)

Fifth in a series.  To be considered a "chart scraper" album, an artist must have had only one album make the Cash Box 200 album chart during the years 1976-85.  Said album spent no more than two weeks on the chart, placing no higher than 196.  They're all new to me.

Absolutely nothing about this country/bluegrass album appeals to me, but maybe it's in your wheelhouse.  For what it's worth, "It Hurts So Much" is the best track on the thing.

My dislike of country music dates back to the early '70s when my parents would drag me along to their square dance practices instead of hiring a babysitter.  But that's a matter for me and my therapist.
