    Interesting set of songs

    It always good to find a Hank WIlliams song on the charts. “Jambalaya” has an interesting history in that it is credited to Hank as the songwriter but was actually written by the legendary piano player Moon Mullican. This song will be with us for several months although it will slide in and out of the top spot

    “I Ain’t Never” , although written by Tillis, was a big hit for Webb Pierce reaching #2 for nine weeks in 1959 (Cashbox did have it reach #1). The arrangement on Mel’s version differs little from the Webb Pierce version
