MERLE TRAVIS
Country music legend whose "Sixteen Tons" was based on his own childhood among the Kentucky coal miners.
Magazine Photograph signed: "Merle/Travis". Brown-hued b/w, 5½x8¼ overall, image 4x5 (one surface). Brief printed biography below photo. Merle Travis (1917-1982), the son of a Kentucky coal miner, became an influential country music singer, guitarist, and above all songwriter. During the 1930s he was part of the radio group, the Drifting Pioneers and recorded duets with Grandpa Jones. His special method of playing the guitar gave rise to a term, "Travis picking." He had some charted hit singles in the late 1940s, but much of his influence today derives from his collection and recording of old regional folk songs. He wrote many songs about coal miners, including "Sixteen Tons," a big crossover hit for Tennessee Ernie Ford in 1955. Travis appears in the film From Here to Eternity (1953), singing "Re-Enlistment Blues." Fine condition.
