Hank Snow tour schedule - July 1955

Sat Apr 26, 2014 9:55 pm

I just found this on eBay.

An original press release for the Hank Snow All Star Jamboree for the month of July, 1955. This has the Davis Sisters (Skeeter Davis went on and was very successful) and Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters and of course, Hank Snow and his son Jimmie. At the bottom is contact information for Tom Diskin, Colonel Tom Parker's right hand man. I acquired this from Hank Snow estate from Jimmie Rodgers Snow who is listed on the press release. Elvis Presley started Rock and Roll through Jamboree Attractions making this highly collectable. Very nice condition considering the age.

Twenty-nine year-old DJ Hugh Cherry worked at WMPS Radio from March to late October 1951, and since he had a son on August 13, my guess is the photo is from mid-1951.

WMPS probably was disappointed his stay was so short.

It's nice to see these great people in the same photo.

I'm sure there must be some other image of Snow and Williams together. Maybe in one of those "ensemble" pictures where you can see about 120 guys and gals on the Grand Ole Opry stage. I will see if I find one.

Thanks !
