A Tribute To Old Time Country Music
Established 1998 (As Gary Sez) by Gary Carico
Please note: Gary's Country is now an archive and is not updated on a regular bases.
Well boys and girls, as of May, 2013, this ole web site will have been up for fifteen years. Yep, it was May of 1998 that we launched GarySez. Of course, the format, name and even the server has changed a bit since then, but the bottom line is ”Real Country Music”, with a little rockabilly and folk thrown in here and there! Originally I had music from all the great legends that we all love so much. But as time went by, it seemed so easy to find music by all the great ones. Sooo, I decided to narrow the format down to a few of the great, but more obscure artists that I have either known personally, or was very familiar with. So please check all the names, and though you may have never heard of some of them, you just may love what you’re gonna hear and read about some of them!
One of the greatest losses to the site, was when HTML gear deleted my guestbooks that contained fifteen years, and thousands of entries. I truly thought the books were backed up, but they weren’t! With Facebook ruling the roost these days, personal web sites and guestbooks are not a popular as they once were, but please, if you see something here you like, then by all means sign the guestbook, and let me, as well as the public know what you’ve found!
Now, be sure your sound is on, then rare back and enjoy the site. And remember, you’re free to download from this site. Thanks for being here! Ole Gary sure does appreciate it!
You must have your sound on to enjoy this site.

A wide sellection from various artists
Oct 17, 1924 - June 13, 2010
During the forties and fifties Louisville personality Jimmie Osborne had many folks tuning to his daily radio show, and buying his latest record. Sadly, he chose to end his life on Dec 26, 1957, with a self inflicted gunshot wound. Visit his page to hear his music and learn more about one of Kentucky's best!
Make no mistake about it, recording artist, radio and TV personality Jimmie Logsdon was also a huge part of what I like to call the Louisville country music movement of the 1950s.
Back in the fifties, Little Enis (Carlos Toadvine) was Lexington Kentucky's original left handed, backwards and upside down guitar player. Visit his page to hear his music and learn more about this amazing artist.
Asher Sizemore & Little Jimmie
Back in the 1930s, Asher Sizemore and his five year old son Jimmie were pioneering the radio waves with their down home country music. Visit their page to listen to some of their radio broadcasts and read what others have to say about them.

My good buddy, neigbor, song writer and singer Carl Bowyer could often be found performing at the Still. Click on Carl's photo to listen to some of his best, including a beautiful song recorded by Opry legend Carl Butler! Is Carl still writing and singing? You betcha, he is!
Could you often find Sam Thompson cuttin' up at The Big Still? You betcha heart you could! Give a listen to this wired writer and entertainer. You'll be glad you did.
