Снова Кантри. Джонни Нортон.


Представляю Джонни Нортона. Он был звездой пятидесятых. По-моему, он очень хорош и песни его хороши.

Он в своих песнях отображал историю нашей страны. Но не адаптированную прогресситами, а реальную историю.
Называл их историческими сагами.
Трудно себе сейчас представить, что песни в честь конфедератов тогда могли исполняться повсеместно, а их исполнитель - получать самые престижные премии включая Grammy.
И никто не протестовал.


Confederate Soldier Song "Johnny Reb" Johnny Horton

"Johnny Reb" is a Confederate soldier's song written in 1959 by Merle Kilgore and popularized by Johnny Horton.
John Gale "Johnny" Horton (April 30, 1925 – November 5, 1960) was an American country music and rockabilly singer most famous for his semi-folk, so-called "saga songs" which began the "historical ballad" craze of the late 1950s and early 1960s. With them, he had several major successes, most notably in 1959 with the song "The Battle of New Orleans" (written by Jimmy Driftwood), which was awarded the 1960 Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording. The song was awarded the Grammy Hall of Fame Award and in 2001 ranked No. 333 of the Recording Industry Association of America's "Songs of the Century". His first hit, a number 1 song in 1959, was "When It's Springtime in Alaska (It's Forty Below)".




During 1960, Horton had two other successes with "North to Alaska" for John Wayne's movie, North to Alaska and "Sink the Bismarck".

Horton is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
