"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.
The lives of a reverend and a rock or R&B musician would seem to be mutually exclusive. Nonetheless, country rock pioneer-turned-pastor Richie Furay is hardly the only strong soul who's managed to exist with one foot in each camp.
"I tell them, 'You know what man, I'm just sharing my life,' " he says. "If I get a chance to talk to someone about the Lord, great. But I certainly don't proselytize in my performances, although I will include a couple of songs from my devotional albums."
"Just as I had been too rock for country, and too country for rock, I was too religious for rock, and too rock for the religious market," says Mr. Furay.
