    I’d never heard that Tennessee Bird Walk before. It’s hard to believe it went to #1.

    I’ve heard “Tennessee Bird Walk” before but I didn’t know who recorded it. It spent two weeks at #1, surprisingly enough. Just goes to show that the old days weren’t always as stellar as we remember them.

    “Sugar Daddy” I remember well. Haven’t heard it in a long time.

    Jack & Misty had a short run of hit singles in the US. “Tennessee Birdwalk” was, of course, a novelty and novelties sometimes chart higher than anyone could reasonable expect. Jack and Misty settled in the Orlando area performing regularly at the (now defunct) Langford Hotel in Winter Park where they were more of a cocktail lounge jazz act than a country act . They had a major hit in Europe about 15 years ago. Jack was (and is) a brilliant songwriter.
