    The Davis Sisters made their only chart entry this week with a song that will stay numner one for six weeks (best selller) or eight weeks (disc jockey) . Tragically Betty Jack Davis was killed in an auto accident on August 2, 1953 and her singing partner Mary Frances “Skeeter Davis” Penick was seriously injured. Skeeter, of course, went on to have many hits but no further country #1s although “End of The World” went # 2 country, #2 pop, #1 easy listening and #4 r&b

    “Riding My Thumb To Mexico” was Johnny Rodriguez’s biggest chart hit spending two weeks at #1
