Don't give Larry Collins too much credit. For "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma," Felice and Boudleaux Bryant sued him for copyright infringement because the tune is the same as their "Rocky Top," slowed way down. They settled in exchange for part of the copyright.

Sandy Pinkard is also a co-writer, as is Alex Harvey on "Delta Dawn."
