Personalities | Doug Stone | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, b. 1956)

Stone (born Doug Brooks) found little commercial success until 1990, but made up for lost time with a dozen Top 10 hits, including several No. 1s, with his new-traditionalist approach. ‘I’d Be Better Off (In A Pine Box)’ (1990) and 1991’s ‘A Jukebox With A Country Song’ are among many tunes through which Stone, a genuine communicator, has touched the hearts of listeners.
