BILLY BARTON a.k.a Johnny Grimes & Hillbilly Barton CD 557

Billy Barton recorded under several stage names and was a true pioneer of both country and rockabilly. He was also a prolific and successful songwriter whose Dear John Letter has become a duet classic, recorded by (among others) Skeeter Davis & Bobby Bare, Ernest Tubb & Loretta Lynn as well as the original 1953 Jean Shepard & Ferlin Huskey smash hit. Our CD includes a couple of Barton’s 1952 duets with his friend, a young Johnny Horton. 10 of the tracks feature Barton's then wife, feisty voiced Wanda Wayne.
