The original bassist for the Byrds, Chris Hillman would be a major figure in 1960s folk-rock for that position alone. By the time of the Byrds' fourth and fifth albums, Younger Than Yesterday and The Notorious Byrd Brothers, he had developed into a notable singer-songwriter, contributing some of the earliest country-rock songs. He also played a strong role in the Byrds' first full country-rock album, Sweetheart of the Rodeo. He continued to pioneer country-rock in the late 1960s and the early 1970s in the Flying Burrito Brothers, whose early recordings also featured fellow ex-Byrd Gram Parsons.
