Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys

Let's read a bit of what Albert E. Gibson, Promotion Manager at Radio Station WSM wrote in one of Roy's earliest Song Folios:

Roy was born in Maynardsville, TN in 1907. Roy got a violin for 25 dollars that took him away from a baseball career it was said.

Roy began his radio career in Knoxville, TN. Over seven years at WSM, Roy and his Smoky Mountain Boys rose to the top in their type of "old-time music".

The band at the time had the same personnel for about 5 years, until Odie had to leave to server for Uncle Sam. Back then, the roster included:

  • Roy Acuff
  • Rachel Veach, five-string banjo and sang comedy numbers with Brother Oswald
  • Oswald, played the straight and Hawaiian guitars
  • Jess Easterday, guitar and doubled in comedy
  • Lonnie Wilson, featured in jug band as is comedy character, "Pap"
  • Velma Williams

    The boys were featured in the the Republic picture "Grand Ole Opry". They were also features of the Grand Ole Opry Tent Show one summer and travelled thousands of miles and played personal apearnces to many thousands of people. But no matter where they played, it was back to Nashville on Saturday night where on the Grand Ole Opry were the featured act of the Prince Albert Network half hour for the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco company of Winston-Salem, NC.

    Roy was also part of a lot of country music history. One such occasion was hosting the "Kate Smith Evening Hour" show back on March 26, 1952. Its interesting enough to note that an icon of country music was hosting a show for a 'pop' icon such as Kate Smith. But this particular show is known for something else as well. Another well-known country music legend was also appearing on this show - Hank Williams. His appearance on this show is one of the few video clips that have survived showing us Hank Williams performing. As fate might have it, in our collection is a typed manuscript of what appears to be the script for that show in 1952. June Carter was also peforming as was Brother Oswald. We've typed it up just as the script had it except for the page breaks. It's about 13 pages or so. Read on...
