About The Artist
Always joked, "I ain't educated, but I'm sincere." Not only that, but she was apparently an astute business person, copyrighting her songs and was careful about her money. Once said to have remarked, "I'm the first hillbilly to own a Cadillac."
Began her career playing the five-string banjo with her cousins, Bozo and Warner Carver on WHB in Kansas City.
In 1935, she was a featured act with Frankie More's Log Cabin Boys on WHAS in Louisville, Kentucky.
Her stage dress was a baggy gingham dress, white stockings and ankle boots along with platinum blond hair. Which, if that wasn't enough, was held in place by bright colored ribbons.
She was a star in a time and era where it was very difficult for women to break into show business.
