They called him "Skyland Scotty" because he came from the "land of
the sky" in the Carolinas. Back before he met and married Lulu Belle
and they became a duet, he sang the old-fashioned songs of the hills
and was known to write a new tune every once in a while.
They speculated that because he had a far away look in his eyes when
he sang songs about a girl in the hills, their might be a romantic item,
but back in 1935, he was still single.
Penned one of the all time classic country songs "Have I Told You Lately
That I Love You".
