Johnny Horton

Johnny Horton

Biography

In the late 1950s, Johnny Horton was one of the first musicians to fuse down-home honky-tonk songwriting with wild rockabilly rhythms. Although Elvis Presley's early material hinted at this musical hybrid, Horton's take on the hillbilly/greaser marriage was much more exaggerated. Just as Horton's talent was blossoming, he died in a gruesome car crash in 1960.
