'I happened to be searching the Grand Ole Opry, and caught the information about Redd Stewart, and it triggered my memory back during the forties and fifties when I used to sit and watch the radio. Actually, I was virtually glued to it when I would hear Pee Wee King and The Golden West Cowboys and the late Redd Stewart!
I never had the opportunity to play with Redd, but in later years when I had my own band, 'The Vibrations,' we always played 'Slow Poke' and we always had a request to play, 'Tennessee Waltz.'
That tune would bring just about everyone to the dance floor, and for what it's worth, I always acknowledged to the crowd that those were tunes that were written by Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King.' (Gene Crabtree/Mobile, AL)
