*This former member of the band, Traffic, was in a tight spot upon signing with Columbia records in 1973 that demanded 2 albums a year from him. Clive Davis, the man who signed him, left the label, leaving the artist in the lurch and on the hook. The artist was having a difficult time, when a guitarist by the name of Jim Krueger joined his band, full of song ideas and writing abilities. The song we'll play could describe any number of scenarios where a relationship goes sour. Name the artist and extra credit for the song...
*You can go to Vegas for a quickie marriage. but how about a quickie divorce? In the early 70's, this country made it easy, allowing only 1 person from the marriage to be present and request it. Sure, it was a tourist play for the country, but it worked. A 1976 song from this popular band shares the story of a woman who travels there for her divorce...has some fun...hooks up with a local, and experiences consequences later on. Name the country, the band and extra credit for the song (that names the country in its title)...
*By 1985, this 3-member band had released 8 studio albums, but with the release of album #9, they released a single that one critic called it the 'poppiest thing' they ever cut. That said, it still had some of the trademark rock sound. Name the band, whose members were all born in the same year and toured most years while all being the same age....
*The great Chet Atkins hosted a variety television show back in the mid-80's...leading to his collaboration with many of his guests. He would cut an album with one such guitarist, but that artist would also go on to collaborate with a female vocalist/guitarist that also appeared on the Atkins TV show. It took a few years, but both guests finally put together an album themselves (2006). Name the male and female artists who did that...
