The Race Is On The Country Classic Double
Today, we’re featuring running and walking music on our “Country Classic Double” at 11:30 a.m., in honor of the American Heart Association’s “America’s Greatest Hear Run & Walk”. We lead off with George Jones’ big hit back in 1964 “The Race Is On”. I know the the Heart Run/Walk isn’t a race, but that tune is a great running song. We follow it up with Leroy Van Dyke’s number one song from 1961 “Walk On By”.
Here’s George Jones performing “The Race Is On” in the 1980s.
