Climbing the Pop Charts

Pretty soon we can have dads dueling posthumously on the county charts.

In addition to the Roseanne Cash tribute to father John [Earlier: Cashing In] coming this fall, wildchild grown older Tanya Tucker has just released My Turn, a collection of classic covers she really wanted to call "Songs My Father Wanted Me to Sing." And, not to let the Y-chromosomes down, Ricky Skaggs is releasing "Ricky Skaggs Solo (Songs My Dad Loved)" a collection of tunes Skaggs associates with his earliest memories of his father introducing him to music and songs he really would have wanted his father to sing with him.

Let the pop races begin.
