Vocalist
    (August 23, 1917-October 11, 1985)
    Born in Ramsey, Illinois
    Birth name was Sollie Paul Williams
    Recorded 'Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette)' (1947)
    He was nicknamed Tex even though he was a Midwesterner transplanted to California.
    He started recording polkas before moving on to country.
    He smoked two packs a day, but cut back to one after being diagnosed with lung cancer.
    'Smoke! Smoke! Smoke!' was Capitol Records' first million seller.

    He warned about 'smok[ing] yourself to death' two decades before the surgeon general.
