"When I listen to country music today, I think it is the best music on the radio," says Richie Furay. As a founding member of Buffalo Springfield and Poco in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the musician helped invent the country rock that would in time transform the sound and style of both its parent genres.
"I was like, 'Oh man, if this song doesn't make it, Poco is never going to have a hit.' " He left Poco the next year to form a supergroup with Mr. Hillman and J.D. Souther, who had written hits with the Eagles.
