Carl Belew !

Hello Hello Hell-o!!!
Carl Belew is one of a long list of performers who moved on from making small rockabilly records to country music fame as both a singer and songwriter.
His rockers include 'Cool Gator Shoes' and 'Folding Money' on Four Star for whom he made his debut in 1955 after being brought to the company's attention by Marvin Rainwater. By the following year, he gained his first widespread exposure thanks to appearances on a pair of California-based radio programs, Town Hall Party and The Cliffie Stone Show. In 1957, he performed on the Louisiana Hayride.
Our man is best remembered as a songwriter whose work was covered by an eclectic group of artists ranging from Patsy Cline to Gene Vincent to Andy Williams.
Carl Belew sadly died of cancer on Halloween in 1990 at the young age of 59.
You know me, I love that kind of details !
