Wikipedia Text

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)".

Profile Bio Text
Horton was born in Los Angeles but at an early age he moved with his sharecropping parents to Tyler, Texas where he grew up. Fishing was an early interest in life & he travelled to Alaska to seek employment in this capacity but after returning to Texas he took up singing. His singing career began in 1950 in Pasadena, California on radiô station KXLA. He later became a regular on `Hometown Jamboree` with Cliffie Stone where he was billed as `the Singing Fisherman`. In 1951 he made his first recording. In 1953 he married the widow of Hank Williams & she took an interest in furthering his career. He became a regular on `Louisiana Hayride` in 1955 & soon after made an appearance on `Grand Ole Opry`. His first hit "Honky Tonk Man" came in 1956 & was soon followed by "When It`s Springtime in Alaska", "the Battle of New Orleans", "Johnny Reb" & "Sink the Bismark". In 1960 he recorded "North to Alaska" for the motion picture of the same name starring John Wayne & Stewart Granger. At this point in his career he decided to add acting to his accomplishments & begin a movie career but this was not to be. On a foggy night in November of 1960, he was returning from a concert with his manager, Tillman Francks & his bass player, Tommy Tomlinson when tragedy struck. A car driven by a drunk driver came out of the fog & collided with Johnny`s car head on. The drunk driver & Horton were killed instantly.
