In 1943, the same year he joined the Grand Ole Opry, Tubb formed his band, The Texas Troubadours. Tubb was with the Opry in its first Carnegie Hall show (1947). He sang duets with Loretta Lynn in the 1960s, including the hit "Sweet Thang". He is enshrined in the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. "LITTLE" BUN WILSON (1926-2014) sang with the band, but was above all a comedian, heard regularly on Barn Dance and Jubilee. He had a solo hit, "Confess That You're Mine" (1953). Guitarist and drummer LEON RHODES was later featured in the band on TV's Hee Haw. JACK DRAKE was a bass guitarist; JIMMY JOHNSON played the fiddle.
