William Orville “Lefty” Frizzell was, without question, one of the most influential performers in country music history. Merle Haggard described him as “the most unique thing that ever happened to country music.” And if that wasn’t enough, stars such as George Jones, Roy Orbison, George Strait, Keith Whitley, and Randy Travis have all listed him as an influence.
With endorsements like that, we should be doing Lefty Frizzell shows every week!
Unfortunately for us all, that’s just not realistic…however, the good news is that THIS weeks show is all about the legend himself.
Not only that, but we dug around in our vaults for some great interview clips of your favorite stars discussing Lefty and his vast web of influence, and if you don’t know Lefty….this is a perfect primer for you. It’s nothing but pure country history here, folks!
So make sure to join us, this week, on the Country Music Greats Radio Show….we’ll see you there!
