Below are the duets featuring nananettie that appear on other members' pages.
Feature!! A beautiful old Pee Wee King song from the feature page that was one of my mom's favorites. Born in Dyersburg, Tennessee and orphaned as a young girl she used to tell me stories of how she sang it into the can on radio shows back in the day. I asked Ms Nettie (nananettie) to add a little harmony to the chorus to smooth out the high notes and she another beautiful job. Not pretending that I know how to sing it, but, this one's for you mom. Thanks for any listen/comment. Larry

Marvin Rainwater, was an American country and rockabilly singer and songwriter who had several hits during the late 1950s. He was known for wearing Native American-themed outfits on stage and was 25 percent Cherokee.. As a child, instead of listening to the Grand Ole Opry with his father, he took classical piano lessons, which ended after he lost part of his right thumb to a work accident as a teenager. He originally trained to be a veterinarian, but after some time in the Navy during World War II took up the guitar. He became fascinated with Roy Acuff and started playing and writing songs. With his brothers, he played concerts around Virginia. Rainwater got his big break in the music business when he performed on the Arthur Godfrey's show. Rainwater was one of country's most noteworthy stars in the late 1950s, when his good looks and baritone voice made him popular. One of the first country songs he recorded was "Gonna Find Me a Bluebird", which he wrote. Released in 1957, the song became a big country-pop crossover hit, making Rainwater among the first country singers to appeal to a pop market. The song reached No. 5 on the country chart and 18 on the pop chart. It sold one million copies by 1957, and gave Rainwater his first gold record. This is a version of that song.. I added an acoustic guitar track to Nettie's wonderful recording.. Thanks for stopping by... Comments are most welcome.... Have a good afternoon everyone.. Cheers, Gary

Feature!!! For all the mothers out there that cared for and touched the lives of your children. I normally sing this one around Mother's Day or the anniversary of my own mother's death, but just felt like singing it today. I asked Ms Nettie (nananettie) to bridge the gap of those background singers that were singing off key. She did a beautiful job with it and I wanted to release it. I am behind on commenting again but will catch up this evening and tomorrow. Thanks for any listen/comment, I will be around however slowly. :) Larry
