Country songs written by non-country artists

For a long time, I've been making a list of bona-fide country songs written by musicians who don't usually do that sort of thing. Recently, a hip-hop guy created quite a stir among purists who insist Old Town Road is not a Real Country Song. I don't have an opinion about that one, but here's a few songs I'll defend as authentic shoulda-been-country-hits.

You Ain't Drinkin' Enough by Don Henley

Changing Partners by Elvis Costello

Dear Doctor by the Rolling Stones

Joy by Harry Nilsson

Do you have any suggestions?
