Freddie Rose

Some of you may recognize this guy's name immediately, but for those who don't, this is Fred Rose, the Rose of Acuff-Rose Publishing who achieved much recognition in the 1940s and 1950s for his authorship and/or publishing of tons of country music hits. Before Rose got into publishing and writing country music, he was apparently an excellent pianist and singer. These recordings make me wonder if he even liked country music. I hope all you historians will enjoy this. Not country, but this is great music!

Check this out for a fasinating biographical sketch of Fred Rose:
