1968 "...then as the world watched, the Chicago riots stole the Democratic Convention spotlight in August. A few months later, Mickey's friends, Roy Rogers and Texan Dale Evans hosted the first televised CMA Awards Show in Ryman Auditorium. Perhaps Roy was wearing Mickey's boots that evening; as they shared the same boot maker and shoe size; the sole mates exchanged boots regularly. The CMA had hired Rogers to host the CMA Show to broaden the appeal and audience of country music, a goal already affected by Newbury's songwriting".
