    He was born in Dickson, Tennessee and made Nashville his home.  He was in the Class of '24 at Vanderbilt University.  While he was the University he formed his own band and wrote the University's official fight song "Dynamite".  He was known for such hits as "Near You", "Tennessee Tango" and "Beg Your Pardon".  He was a piano maestro and played for 25 years at the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville.  He had his own orchestra which was the first one to play on WSM and later he was musical director there.
