The uptempo track, about a newly-single man finally putting the sorrow behind him, is brimming with sunshine. The track, typical of the era, is beyond creepy and has an inappropriate sing-song melody that clashes with the subject matter. The honky-tonk uptempo number returns the album to the sunny disposition of the opening track, with a lyric written by Johnny Mathis and Harlan Howard about a guy A Girl I Used To Know - Charley Pride - Make Mine Country would forgive his ex Mindset - Chokehold - Instilled she came back into his life.
The track is merely good. Make Mine Country is a very strong album, with solid takes on some of the hits from the day. I liked this album a little more than you did, although it is not his strongest effort. Although I know now that Greene did not release the song as a single, WCMS gave his version numerous enough spins that I thought it was a single. Rather given his track record RCA was willing to release an album without a corresponding single release.
Capitol had made a similar move with Buck Owens two years earlier. The song was Middle Class Romance (Infatuation) - Danny Graham - Promotional Copy Only by Harold Dorman who had met Charley many years earlier. They both grew up in Sledge, Mississippi but neither man knew that the other aspired to a musical career.
That track was co-produced by Bob Ferguson who wrote it. Technically that song received two single releases. Pride was likely encouraged to record it by his producer Jack Clement who wrote it.
