EARL PETERSON

THIRD MAN RECORDS



7"

Peterson was Michigan’s very own singing cowboy, though Despite a very long 45-year career in country music, very little is known about him.

While shopping his music down South, he met Sam Phillips and agreed to release his song on Sun Records in the spring of 1954. This bouncing, twangy single would prove to be a cult hit and original pressings still command a lofty price. As the first remotely contemporary country single on the label, Peterson’s single paved the way for Sun to later pivot into the country genre.
