About The Artist

Lattie Moore came from Allen County, Kentucky and grew up in the tobacco farming area before doing something with his musical talents. His home was about 65 miles from the home of the Grand Ole Opry and that inspired him to take up learning the guitar and later, entering talent contests.

In 1944, his career took him to Indianapolis, Indiana where he did television and radio appearances in the capital city and also worked some of the large jamboree parks in Indiana. They said he also traveled for a time with Cowboy Lash LaRue's Road Show.

When 1951 came around, Lattie had his own show on the Midwest Jamboree in Indianapolis and later was given a chance to go to Hollywood and be in television pictures. But he opted instead to remain in Indianapolis and began to make recordings. His first recording was ""Married Troubles" b/w "It's Good Enough For You". In 1953, he had a bit of a hit with his recording of "Juke Joint Johnnie".
