A name that is recognized worldwide in any genre of music, The Statler Brothers. First performing at local churches until fate brought them together with Country giant Johnny Cash in 1964. Entering that relationship as the backup vocals for Johnny on stage, records, and T.V. During their eight and a half years with the Man in Black, they recorded their first hit record, “Flowers on the Wall”, and became regulars on the weekly Johnny Cash Show, seen on ABC T.V.
Leaving Cash in 1972, they continued with such hits as “Bed of Roses”, “Class of ’57″, and “I’ll Go to My Grave Loving You.” The original harmonies, sense of humor, and lyrical style of writing highlighted a career that led them to the top of the music charts countless times and to a concert touring success that packed arenas and theaters.
From 1990 to 1998, they hosted The Statler Brothers Show, their own weekly top-rated variety show on the Nashville Network. With more than forty albums to their credit, The Statler Brothers have been honored with three Grammy Awards, nine Counrty Music Association awards for vocal group of the year, and two Academy of Country Music awards. They have also been inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame, and have been awarded more than any other Country Music act. Their songs have been featured on several movie soundtracks, such as “Charlotte’s Web” in Smokey and the Bandit II, and “Flowers on the Wall” in Pulp Fiction. Legends Radio, to this date, favors The Statler Brothers. They have been called America’s Poets.
Today you can relive the musical memories of The Statler Brothers through American Pride. They have captured the true aunthenticity of The Statler Brothers sound, keeping the legacy alive and promoting traditional Country Music, which is generational, yet crosses age boundaries.
Just as The Statler Brothers had two members who are actually brothers, Harold and Don Reid, so does American Pride, as Mike and Jimmy Whetsel are also brothers. Both the Reid brothers and the Whetsel brothers have a life-long love for Southern Gospel quartet music, and still find that audiences at all venues cannot help but clap their hands and pat their feet to “I’ll Fly Away” or “Heaven’s Jubilee.”
