The Biggest Country Star of the 1950’s Sit Down for a Chat, and Faron Young Joins in the Fun!
Was Webb Pierce the biggest star in country music in the 1950's?
Well, he spent more weeks atop the country music chart than anyone. His classic 'In The Jailhouse Now' was on the chart for 37 weeks in 1955, including an incredible 21 weeks at number one!
So, if he wasn't the biggest star of the decade, he's certainly in the conversation.
Webb passed away in 1991 at the age of 69. But let's go back and listen in on this country music legend as he talks with Ralph Emery about his friend Faron Young. Oh, and Faron has a great golf story about Webb, too!
