Roy Acuff
and Kitty Wells

Roy Acuff and Kitty Wells hardly need an introduction to hillbilly music fans as both are legends. But it was rare for them to record together since they were on separate labels for most of their careers. But while Roy was with Decca for a short while, he did cut a duet together. Paul Cohen, the Decca Artists and Repertoire man at the time paired them up for a couple of songs, "Mother Hold Me Tight" and "Goodbye Mr. Brown".

They mentioned that Roy had already been singing for 19 years when they did their duet recording. Roy was known as the "King of Country Music" and was the mainstay of WSM's Grand Ole Opry for many decades. Kitty Wells was known as the "Queen of Country Music". She married Johnnie Wright, who of course was part of the "Johnnie and Jack" duo.
