Country Crossover

Published On June 23, 2018 | By Jeff Norgate | Blogs, Jeff Norgate

By the age of twelve, Eddie was a proficient guitar player and during his childhood he called himself, “a walking  encyclopedia of Country music”.   Eddie dropped out of school at 16, and according to his Mom, his head was “too full of music” to stay in school.

In 1968, he moved to Nashville and worked various jobs to support himself.  That all started to change in 1969 when Elvis recorded one of Eddie’s songs, “Kentucky Rain”.  Then, one morning while eating a bowl of Cap’n Crunch, he wrote, “Pure Love”, which became a number one hit for Ronnie Milsap.

Eddie Rabbitt’s career was well underway, and he went on to become one of Country music’s top Crossover artists, placing songs at the top of Country and Adult charts.
