Bob Wills hired him after the war,
and he also recorded on some early sessions of Marty Robbins, Ray Price, and
Lefty Frizzell in Dallas. There was also local TV out of Waco, with a young
Willie Nelson on bass. As the '50s ended, with the changing music scene, he
quit music for a while and became a barber.
The late '60s brought him to
Nashville for some session work, including the Million Dollar Band on Hee
Haw. When he moved back to Texas, he was part of Nelson's band and a part
of the success of Asleep at the Wheel and George Strait. His last big recording
was a tribute album with some friends in 2010.
Busgal has strung him along on her
list and gets 5 points for the hit, plus 5 for the solo.
