The valley road - Bruce Hornsby and the Range

'The valley road' was released as the first single from Bruce Hornsby and the Range's 1988 album 'Scenes from the Southside'. The song was inspired by observations Hornsby had made growing up in the state of Virginia. 'Every year, some rich girl would get involved with some country guy, and they would act irresponsibly and have to deal with the ramifications.'

The single peaked at number 5 in the US Billboard Hot 100, number 27 in the Dutch Top 40 and number 44 in the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 3190
Found: Record fair, September 16, 2000
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'The valley road' / 'The long race'
