Boxcar Willie, born as Lecil Travis Martin (September 1, 1931 – April 12, 1999) was an American country music singer, who sang in the "old-time hobo" music style, complete with dirty face, overalls, and a floppy hat. "Boxcar Willie" was originally a character in a ballad he wrote, but he later adopted it as his own stage name.


Profile Bio Text
Boxcar Willie (September 1, 1931 – April 12, 1999) was an American "hobo music" singer. Born as Lecil Travis Martin near Ovilla, Texas, Boxcar Willie was an American country music singer who sang in the "hobo music" style. In 1949, he joined the United States Air Force, became a pilot and flight engineer for the B-29 Super Fortress during the Korean War in the early 1950s. In 1976, Martin left the Air Force and became a full-time performer. He entered American mainstream pop culture consciousness due to a series of hyperbole-laced television commercials for record compilations of artists who were obscure in the United States, yet had large international followings, such as Slim Whitman and Gheorghe Zamfir. He went on to become a star in country music, selling more than 10 million records, tapes and CDs worldwide. In 1981, Martin achieved a professional landmark by being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry as its 60th member. In 1985, Martin moved to Branson, Missouri and purchased a theater on Highway 76, or 76 Country Music Boulevard. In addition to the Boxcar Willie Theater, he opened a museum and eventually had two motels, both bearing his name. Boxcar Willie was one of the first big stars to open a show in Branson, paving the way for the other nationally-known names that followed. Diagnosed with leukemia in 1996, Martin died on April 12, 1999 in Branson at age 67. Martin was a first cousin to the actor, Tommy Lee Jones, who is also from Texas.
