Gram Parsons would try again with The Flying Burrito Brothers, but wouldn't have much success here either. The first to do so, I'd say would be, Dwight Yoakam back in '86. I honestly can't think of another Country Rock (Rock sub genre) artist that has totally broken into Country Music.
This is Clarence Carter:

The Eagles were the most successful band that played Country Rock during the 70s. I don't know how well the charted on the Country Charts, but regardless of that they were pretty popular elsewhere.
