Singer/songwriter ERNEST TUBB (1914-1984) is said to have created the honky-tonk style of country music with his hit "Walking the Floor Over You" (1943). 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. JACK GREENE (1930-2013) was an American musician who, after forming a few of his own bands, was eventually asked to join Ernest Tubb and the Texas Troubadors. Greene played many different roles in the band including drummer, vocalist, guitarist, and M.C. Guitarist and drummer LEON RHODES was later featured in the band on TV's Hee Haw.

After working various jobs in the 1950s, Smith was discovered by the legendary Ernest Tubb, who eventually asked Smith to join the band. Smith played the guitar for the band until 1969, when he and the band parted ways. BUDDY CHARLETON (1938-2011) was an American teacher and musician most widely known for his part as a pedal steel guitarist in Ernest Tubb and the Texas Troubadors. Lightly bowed.
