Cowboy Copas was born on a small ranch near Muskogee, Oklahoma. From his early days everone on and off the ranch called him cowboy. His actual name was Lloyd T. Copas.

Before he was twelve years of age he was winning singing contests. He sang wherever he could, square dances, community affairs. As he grew he became a regular on radio stations everywhere and making one night stands. 

In 1946 his big break came when he joined the "Grand Ole Opry" show. He was an instant success and in such great demand by that time all he had time for was performing.

Cowboy Copas was returning from an engagement with two other country stars when their light plane crashed taking his life, and the lives of Hawkshaw Hawkins and Patsy Cline. All were stars of the Grand Ole Opry.

This record was recorded in stereophonic on Coronet label. It sounds good but shows some wear.
