Today's Believe Your Ears music podcast looks at the best country recordings of Dean Martin. Here's some more video from his famous TV show of him with various Nashville and country music guests.

This is Dean with Loretta Lynn and Tom T. Hall in the early 1970's.

He and Glen Campbell team up for "You Are My Sunshine."

Tackling Ray Price's 1970 Country-pop hit version of Kris Kristofferson's "For The Good Times."

An obscurity: his modest 1952 hit rendition of Hank Penny's Western Swing recording of "Wham! Bam, Thank You, Ma'am."

Dean in the early 50's singing "Hominy Grits" from the Colgate Comedy Hour he and Jerry Lewis co-hosted.

From the NBC show singing Bill Anderson's ballad "Tip of My Fingers."

On a fairly out of control segment with comedian and 50's TV show host George Gobel, who started his career as a kid singing on the famous country radio show the WLS National Barn Dance as singer "Little Georgie Gobel."

Dean with Tennessee Ernie Ford, the first country singer to host a prime-time network variety show (1956-61).
