Redd Stewart - Pee Wee King's Golden West Cowboy
Henry 'Redd' Stewart, the fiddle-playin', guitar-pickin' cowboy with the 'voice as smooth as honey' blazed a glorious trail throughout the 1940s and 1950s as a solo artist and lead singer/songwriter with Pee Wee King's Golden West Cowboys. Considered one of the most shockingly overlooked country performers of his day, Redd is well-deserving of inclusion into the Country Music Hall of Fame, if only for penning the lyrics to the immortal song, 'Tennessee Waltz.'

Remembering the Pioneers of Country Music
This website is dedicated to the pioneers of Country music. Without all of their hard work and dedication, there would be no Country music. Redd Stewart & Pee Wee King were two of them. They performed on the Grand Ole Opry back in the late 1930s and early 1940s, and went on to having several television shows, among many other performing events. Together they co-wrote the immortal song, 'Tennessee Waltz', 'You Belong to Me', 'Slow Poke', 'Bonaparte's Retreat' and many others. Let's keep the memories and hard work of the pioneers of Country music alive. Honor Thy Legends.
