They called him "Skyland Scotty" because he came from the "land of the sky" in the Carolinas. Back before he met and married Lulu Belle and they became a duet, he sang the old-fashioned songs of the hills and was known to write a new tune every once in a while.

They speculated that because he had a far away look in his eyes when he sang songs about a girl in the hills, their might be a romantic item, but back in 1935, he was still single.

Penned one of the all time classic country songs "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You".
