Promissory Note Signed: "Stu Phillips", 9x3½. Nashville, Tennessee, 1968 March 11. First American National Bank of Nashville promissory note. Phillips agrees to pay $5,830 to the bank within 30 days at "interest from date at the legal rate". Stamped as paid on "April 22, 1968" on front. Born in Montreal, Canada, Stu Phillips (b. 1933) joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1967, the year before he signed this note. Phillips, who had his own band at an early age, had hosted a number of Canadian radio variety shows (Stu for Breakfast, Town and Country, Cowtown Jamboree), moved to television (host of The Outrider and a stint on Red River Jamboree) and released a successful album, Echoes of the Canadian Foothills, before moving to Nashville in 1965. There, he was the host of a local morning show and signed a recording contract with RCA Records. Phillips, who had such hits as "Bracero", "The Great El Tigre", "Vin Rose" and "Jaunita Jones", made some 20 guest appearances at the Opry before becoming a member. In addition to touring with the Opry, he has toured extensively abroad. Inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993, Phillips became a U.S. citizen five years later. An ordained minister in the Episcopalian Church, Phillips has released several Christian recordings, including his single, "Only God". Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Bank stamp on front touches the upper loop of the "S" in Stu. Slightly soiled at blank right margin and on verso. Ink and pencil notes (unknown hands) at upper and left margins. Otherwise, fine condition.
