About The Artist
Lee Rose was from Jacksonville, Texas. His musical career was interupted like many back in the days of World War II. He spent four and a half years with the U.S. Navy.
They wrote that when he was discharged from the military service, he came back to Texas and found work on several stations, not indicating which ones however. But by 1951, he was working with KCIJ out of Shreveport, Louisiana.
Lee was also a bit of a songwriter and had penned about 100 tunes by 1951. His two most popular tunes at that point were "Downhearted Blues" and "Lonely Heart Stop Crying".
