Diana Duke

Diana Duke was one of the first artists that recorded for a then new Dollie record label in 1966. Her first release, "Cold Cup of Coffee" b/w "Time Have Mercy On Me" were written by Kent Westbury. The records were released on June 30, 1966. The Dollie label derived its name from the wife of Bill Denny (President of Cedarwood Publishing Company), Dollie.

Diana was part of a trio of entertainers that campaigned with John J. Hooker, who was a candidate for governor of Tennessee in 1966. Paul Moore, known as the singing dentist was the other artist along with the group backing them up - The John Js. Their travels were to take them throughout the state from July 2 through August 4 of 1966.

On Saturday September 17, 1966 the Grand Ole Opry held sort of an unofficial celebration for the Cedarwood Publishing Company and featured many artists related to the firm. Vice President of Dollie Records, John Denny was there along with Diana and fellow label artist, Marti Brown. Mel Tillis and Paul Moore also appeared on the Opry that evening as well. Other personnel from Cedarwood on hand that evening were Curley Rhodes and Roger Sovine.
