Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Claude King (born February 5, 1923) is an American country music singer and songwriter, best known for his million selling 1962 hit, "Wolverton Mountain." King was born in Keithville, Louisiana, near the city of Shreveport. At a young age, he was interested in music but his primary interest was athletics. He purchased a guitar at age 12 and although he learned to play, most of his time was devoted to sports. He was offered a baseball scholarship to the University of Idaho at Moscow. King later returned to Shreveport and joined Louisiana Hayride, a TV and radio show produced in Shreveport and broadcast in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. King was frequently on the same shows with Elvis Presley, Tex Ritter, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Webb Pierce, Kitty Wells, Jimmie Davis, Slim Whitman, Faron Young, Johnny Horton, Jim Reeves, George Jones and Lefty Frizzell.show more
