Porter Wagoner

Before the Nudie suits and the big hair; before Dolly and Norma Jean; before The Grand Ol' Opry and The Porter Wagoner Show; before "Rubber Room," "The Carroll County Accident," and "The Cold Hard Facts of Life," there was Porter Wagoner the hillbilly singer from the Missouri Ozarks. This record was his first number one hit in 1954.
