(via Honky-Tonk Traditionalist Moe Bandy Ain’t Clowning Around)

A country-music traditionalist, Moe Bandy stands with guys like Johnny Bush and Johnny Paycheck as one of the true masters of the three veins of honky-tonk that matter most: loving songs, drinking songs, and cheating songs. If Bandy does a cover, he goes straight to the source code: Hank Williams and George Jones. The influence of both artists can be heard in Bandy’s vocal delivery, and was enough to gain him ten No. 1 country hits while placing 40 songs in the charts during his career.
“I’m a traditionalist,” says Bandy from his home outside Branson, Missouri. “I went into music wanting to sound like Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Ray Price, George Jones, the guys who set the bar for what I think of as country music. I just never saw myself venturing very far from those old-school artists.”

As younger men, both Bandy and his brother Mike had a strong jones for rodeo, but Moe eventually found himself…

Country Music Gets Soul: Linda Martell is first black female to sing at Grand Ole Opry (Ebony, 1970)

Before the advent of Bobbie Gentry and her Ode To Billie Joe, country music — like rhythm and blues — was “special music” enjoyed by a somewhat limited, dedicated group of fans. Few of those fans were black. Country music experts, however, feel that it is natural that blacks would enjoy success singing country and western. Says Shelby Singleton, who records Linda on the Plantation label: “Rhythm and blues and country music are the most parallel types of music.” It’s the working people who make up the listeners for both.” And Charley Pride has said: “Country music, the blues and my people’s spirituals are the only true American music.” It has been a very happy “musical marriage” for Linda, who, by all standards in the business, has far exceeded expectations for so short a time. Singleton observes: “Based on reactions to her first two records, she’s gonna be a big country and Western star.”
