Leon Payne - Lost Highway 225

June 15, 2017

June 15th, birthday of prolific songwriter and country singer Leon Payne (June 15, 1917 – September 11, 1969), a.k.a. “the Blind Balladeer”.  His place in music history is assured by his compositions having been recorded by the likes of Hank Williams, Elvis Presley and Jim Reeves. His own recordings appeal to those who like stripped down country, mainly just the artist accompanying himself on guitar or with unfussy steel  backing. The Archive have so far released three CDs,  including some rare radio transcripts.
