He had a savvy agent, Tom Parker, who signed Elvis to contracts that were incredibly favorable to Parker himself. Elvis had what should have been a highly successful film career. He made 31 films, and nearly every one of them made a profit.
Unfortunately, the films were often of exceptionally poor quality. They were made with great haste, and most of his films re-cycled the same banal plot lines over and over again.
What a shame. Elvis would have been 81 in January , but his music lives on. Willie Nelson is one of the greatest country singer-songwriters of all time. Born in Texas in and raised by his grandparents, Willie joined his first band at age 10, and continued to be active in music throughout a series of different jobs in his youth.
In Willie worked as a DJ and musician in Houston. Several of his songs became blockbuster hits for other artists — for example, Crazy became the biggest jukebox hit of all time for Patsy Cline, and Pretty Paper was a big country hit for Roy Orbison. Commercial success began with the Atlantic album Shotgun Willie and the Columbia release Red Headed Stranger , and Willie has never looked back.
The past 40 years has seen a host of best-selling albums, collaborations with artists such as Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, and a boatload of awards and honors. Willie was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in In addition to his great country vocals, Willie is also an excellent guitarist.
At left is a photo of Trigger. The song climbed steadily to 1 on the Billboard country charts. The song was also a big crossover hit, reaching 5 on the Billboard Hot , and remaining on the pop charts for 23 weeks.
The song also garnered a slew of awards for Willie and the songwriters. He imbues the song with the perfect amount of sorrow and irony, and in addition shows his impeccable sense of timing and phrasing. It was none other than Chips Moman, who had convinced songwriter Wayne Carson to add a bridge to the tune.
By the way, the legendary songwriter, producer and session guitarist Chips Moman died in June, He had been suffering for some time from a disease of the lungs.
Chips had an amazing career and will be badly missed. Willie Nelson has been a major contributor to various charity and activist organizations. With Neil Young and John Mellencamp, he was a founder of the Farm Aid concerts that have raised money in support of family farms since This is not just a philosophical issue with Nelson: he has stated that smoking pot has almost certainly prevented him from becoming an alcoholic.
In addition, marijuana apparently helped him kick a several-pack-a-day cigarette habit that produced some dangerous health problems. Single Top Les classement single. Swiss Singles Chart. British Phonographic Industry. October 26, Retrieved September 2, Hot Country Songs to Record Research, Inc.
