Am I being silly.

In an article called '10 Best Country Covers of Your Favorite Beatles Songs' 'Act Naturally ' is included with the text reading

Just a year after Ringo’s original rendition was featured on Help !, Buck Owens put his stamp on the cult favorite song live at Carnegie Hall. Together with his whole band, Buck puts together a rollicking country western version of the classic tune. The performance features stellar harmonies and all the showmanship that won his band a spot on top of the Billboard charts. This is classic Buck at work.

Buck was the first artist to record it, doing so two years before Ringo.

ALSO...
The Beatles' version (for that's what it is, not Ringo's version -- it implies he did it solo) WASN'T EVEN IN Help ! a-hard-days-night-paul-3

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

But the quote says "...on Help !...", and it was the first track on side two of the UK Help album. It does get that bit right, if not much more...

I've been listening to this song lately. It's great. I always liked it, since first listen.
I think Ringo does a fine job here. George guitar fills and flourishes fit perfectly, very much in the style.
And Paul harmonies are very good.
Even the little noise from the acoustic guitar strings at the end fits well...
