Background

Connie in the Country contained ten tracks. The album was a showcase of unreleased material Smith has recorded in the RCA studios between August 22 and August 23, 1966. The album included cover versions of Loretta Lynn's "World of Forgotten People," Buck Owens's "Foolin' Around" and "Love's Gonna Live Here," and "I Overlooked an Orchid (While Searching for a Rose)." [1] The album was issued on a 12-inch vinyl LP record, with five songs on each side of the record. The album did not receive any album reviews or ratings.

The album Connie in the Country was one of several albums of original new product by popular country stars released by RCA on its budget-line RCA Camden (which usually was just a line for repackaging older material) to encourage country fans to start collecting the label's currently popular artists. Smith's other albums on the Camden label are repackaged material from her RCA Victor albums.

The album's only single, "Cry, Cry, Cry" (not to be confused with Johnny Cash's 1955 hit of the same name) became a major hit on Billboard Magazine's Hot Country Songs chart, reaching #20, becoming Smith's first single to peak outside of the country Top 10.
