lyrics and chords are intended for your personal use only, these guys
recorded many wonderful songs that us amateurs can learn. To me,
there's no better music than classic country.
The Wilburn Brothers were born in Hardy Arkansas in the
early 1930's into a musical family. They attracted attention as child
performers beginning in 1937 with an act called The Wilburn Children.
Roy Acuff discovered them and brought them to the Grand Ole Opry in
1940. After growing up they were regulars on the Louisiana Hayride from
1948 until 1951. Both brothers served in the US army during the Korean
War. In 1953 they continued touring as The Wilburn Brothers and toured
with Faron Young and Webb Pierce.
Decca Records signed them to a recording contract in
1954 and their first hit "Sparkling Brown Eyes" came the same year.
Many hits followed over the years and they were instrumental in
launching careers of several country music legends such as Loretta Lynn
and Pattie Loveless. The Wilburn Brothers TV show was a great success
running from 1963 to 1971 and they were members of the Opry until the
time of Doyle's death in 1982. Teddy continued as a solo artist with
the Opry until his death in 2003. They had such great harmony and left
us with so many great great country songs.
