Radio Announcer. He was one of the most beloved voices in Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry. He began his career in radio in McComb, Mississippi and from there to New Orleans, Little Rock, and Shreveport before coming to Nashville. He spent 1954 to 1964, on WSM radio as host of "Opry Star Spotlight" and as announcer for the Grand Ole Opry. He also made recordings for RCA, Mercury and Dot Records.
