Tennessee Ernie - Shot Gun Boogie

Tennessee Ernie or Ernest Jennings Ford (February 13, 1919 – October 17, 1991), known professionally as Tennessee Ernie Ford, was an American recording artist and television host who enjoyed success in the country and Western, pop, and gospel musical genres. Today, he is best remembered for his hit recording of "Sixteen Tons". While best remembered for a more pop country and gospel sound make no bones about it, this little ditty from 1951 is early rockabilly!
