Answer by §♫♪‹(•¿•)›☼»-(¯`v´¯)-»\
Almost everyone in country music.
It’s a “standard”.

“Green Green Grass of Home”, written by Claude “Curly” Putman Jr., is a country song originally made popular by Porter Wagoner in 1964 and Bobby Bare in 1965. Later by Tom Jones in 1966 when it reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 1 December staying there for a total of seven weeks.[1] (It had been recorded earlier that year by Jerry Lee Lewis, without any great success). The Tom Jones record reached #11 pop, #12 easy listening on the Billboard US charts.

Since then it has been a popular cover song, recorded, for example, by Johnny Cash on his 1968 Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison album, by Joan Baez on her 1969 album David’s Album, by Stompin’ Tom Connors on his album Stompin’ Tom Connors, ‘LIVE’ at the Horseshoe in 1971, by Elvis Presley in 1975, and also by Kenny Rogers on his self-titled album, Kenny Rogers, in 1977.
