"You know, you can copyright the words of a song, and the music to the song, but you can`t copyright your voice."

 

"When I sing, to me every word had a feeling about it. I had to linger, had to hold it. I didn`t want to let go of it. I want to hold one word through a whole line of melody, to linger with it all the way down. I didn`t want to let go of that no more than I wanted to let go of the woman I loved. I didn`t want to lose it."

 

First singer ever to get four (4) hits on the Billboard Top 10 at one time, in October of 1951 "Always Late" was number one, "Mom And Dad`s Waltz was number two, "I Want To Be With You Always" was number seven, and "Travlin` Blues" was number eight. A feat that was not be topped until a band known as "The Beatles" came along in 1964.

 

Grandfather of August Frizzell.
