BILLY WALLACE – Got Ramblin On My Mind. BACM CD 650

Billy Wallace was an Oklahoma-born singer, songwriter and guitarist, whose early influences were the country stars of the 1930s/40s including Roy Acuff, the Delmore Brothers and Rex Griffin. He moved to Nashville around 1950, cutting his first recordings on the Tennessee label in 1950. He had a distinctive sound, one of those deep nasal voices somewhat in the Hank Snow mould coupled with a blues-influenced guitar style. Undeservedly, he is nowadays largely forgotten although many of his compositions have become country standards, recorded by the likes of Patsy Cline, Red Foley, Kitty Wells and Little Jimmy Dickens. Hank Williams was regularly including Wallace’s co-write Back Street Affair on his radio shows although he never got around to recording it in the studio. It became a big hit for Webb Pierce in 1952 and later as a duet between Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn. Our CD showcases the best of Wallace’s recordings from 1950 to 1962.
