** Buck Owens' 1969 No. 1 country hit "Tall, Dark Stranger." Video stills from the song, plus at least three others, were included in the liner notes to Owens' three-CD box set, issued by Rhino Records in 1991. Both "Tall Dark Stranger" and "Big In Vegas," which topped out at No. 5 in early January 1970, have been uploaded to various video sharing sites and also have aired on ''HeeHaw'' and the [=GAC=] family of networks.
** Starting that same year, various songs on the television series ''HeeHaw'', with producer Sam Louvillo making the claim. However, these were not true music videos as they are known today, but rather compiled using filmed stock footage of rural settings and/or sped-up stop-action films of people dancing and/or acting goofy, and were used more for comedy than serious promotion of the song it was played under. When several prominent country singers began complaining that their songs were not being treated seriously (i.e., an instrument for comedy), the idea was later shelved. (Unlike Owens' "Big In Vegas," which played the concept straight and was, in fact, very influential in setting the style of serious country music videos that have been seen since.)
