Is this the name of an Andy Griffith Show character or a Sixties country singer?

Would you find this person at Floyd's or the Grand Ole Opry?

The Andy Griffith Show was filled with good music. Andy himself sang along with The Country Boys. Bluegrass superstars The Dillards appeared on the series as The Darlings. Of course, you probably whistled along to "The Fishin' Hole" every episode.

Meanwhile, as that iconic sitcom was airing, country music was going through a revolution. "The Nashville Sound," "The Bakersfield Sound" and "Outlaw Country" all came into their own as genres in the Sixties.

We've gathered some Mayberry folks and some popular country singers of the 1960s. See if you can sort 'em!

You got 16 out of 17
As Andy would say, you did "G-o-o-o-o-o-d!"
Missed #15.
I thought Martha sang in a choir?

16/17. A few logical guesses. Messed up on the last one.

17/17; easy one for me - I breezed right thru it. I am a big fan of the Andy Griffith Show.

If your parents named you Ferlin Husky, you pretty much *had* to become a country singer. Same with Narvel Felts, Merle Haggard and Lefty Frizzell. Conway Twitty's a perfect name for country too, but it was a stage name (his real name was Harold Jenkins, which is a perfect name for an insurance salesman).

13/17. 9, 13, 15 and 16.
Have to disagree with Narvel Felts and Lefty Frizzell. Those names sound like Markelle Fultz and Lefty Driesell who are both associated with basketball and not country music. Felts' high notes were so unbearable (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS0S1SnLpT4).

I don't get the gate for the color episodes displayed on this thread. They're not On the level of the black and white Barney episodes, but it's not like the show suddenly sucked.

Good quiz (13 for 17). Please consider bringing back WKRP for the Fall.

I missed two, if only because I don't watch the color seasons, so I'm not familiar with Goober having a love interest, or Emmett's wife.
