Sweetheart of the Rodeo is the sixth album by American rock band The Byrds, released on July 29 1968 (see 1968 in music). It is one of the seminal recordings of country-rock and remains influential to this day despite being the most commercially unsuccessful album recorded by the group at the time of its release.
