382. Charlie Rich

Although Charlie Rich was best known for his hits in the early 70’s when he was a “Countrypolitan” superstar, a closer look at Charlie Rich’s career saw an artist who was a true Country artist who blended other genres like Soul, Jazz and Rockabilly effortlessly in some of his lesser known work. Despite the mass success he enjoyed, Rich became pigeonholed to that success and seemed disinterested in creating original material by the decade’s end. A true rebel, the “Silver Fox” was massively successful, though had he wanted to he would have achieved even greater fame.
