This song has been on my mind for days and I cant remember who sang it.

I heard the crash on the highway, But I didn't hear nobody pray

LOUISE...I Think Roy Acuff did that song!

Here's what I come up with:
The classic "Wreck on the Highway," written by Dorsey Dixon in late 1937 after a serious road accident near Rockingham [NC], was originally recorded under the title "Didn't Hear Nobody Pray" [Charlotte, NC, Jan 25, 1938]. This was eventually recorded by [Chicago radio duo Karl and Harty in 1940 and by] Roy Acuff in 1942 [Hollywood, CA, May 28, 1942] under the title "Wreck On The Highway" (Co 37028 [Okeh 06585]).
Not until 1946 was Dorsey able to convince Fred Rose of Acuff-Rose, who published the song, of his ownership. In May of that year credit was assigned to him but the royalties from the initial sales of the records were lost....

Thank you William and Fred.

This song was also included in the recent Ricky Skaggs and the Whites CD.  Buck does a great job on it.
