Vocalist
    (August 8, 1921-February 24, 1991)
    Born in West Monroe, Louisiana
    Recorded the #1 country singles 'Wondering' (1952), 'That Heart Belongs To Me' (1952), 'Back Street Affair' (1952), 'It's Been So Long' (1953), 'There Stands the Glass' (1953), 'Slowly' (1954), 'Even Tho' (1954), 'More and More' (1954), 'In the Jailhouse Now' (1955), 'I Don't Care' (1955), 'Love, Love, Love' (1955), 'Why, Baby, Why' (with Red Sovine, 1956) and 'Honky Tonk Song' (1957)
    Had 26 additional top ten country hits
    Inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame (2001)
    He shaved five years off his age, claiming 1926 as his year of birth.
    In addition to rhinestone-studded suits, he had Nudie Cohn design a pair of silver dollar-studded convertibles for him.
    The guitar-shaped pool at his Nashville home was a tourist attraction (with nearly 3,000 visitors a week) until his neighbors, led by singer Ray Stevens, filed suit to end the tours.
    Inevitably, one of his fan pages is dubbed 'The Webb Site.'
    His single 'In the Jailhouse Now' topped the Billboard country chart for 21 weeks.
    He recorded the first country single to feature a pedal steel guitar.
    He replaced Hank Williams at the Grand Ole Opry.
    He invested wisely in publishing, radio stations and real estate, commenting 'I went into the business just hoping that one more hit would come up, and looking way ahead as to what I’d do when it was over.'
