About Tennessee Ernie Ford
American legend Tennessee Ernie Ford is known not only for his voice but for his contagious personality as an artist, radio personality, actor and TV host. The late Country Music Hall of Famer has been a beloved household name since the 1950s. His talent as a singer has garnered sales of over 90 million albums sold worldwide, and he earned 17 Top 10 songs on Billboard’s country song surveys--a run that included three #1 hits: 1949s "Mule Train," 1950s "The Shot Gun Boogie" and 1955s "Sixteen Tons." Gospel music was one of Ford’s greatest career passions as seen on his prime-time variety tv program. In 2014, the Tennessee Ernie Ford exhibit was placed in the Smithsonian's Birthplace of Country Music Museum located in Bristol, Tennessee, in celebration of his artistry, accomplishments and impact on our culture.
