On March 15, 1966, Roger Miller won SIX GRAMMY AWARDS for the song and album including King of the Road. This one was one of my favorites when I was little. (I would have been around seven.) I suspect it was because I could sing the word cigarettes at the top of my lungs and get away with it?
Still makes me smile when I hear it… I can still hear myself running around the outside of my house … voice a blasting….Mother a cringing???
