Ferlin Husky Biography
In 1984, Ferlin was signed by MCA who released a video of his called Truck Drivin' Son of a Gun. He then began to build the Wings of a Dove Museum in Hendersonville, Tennessee, which soon became part of Conway Twitty's Twitty City. In 1988, he gave up drinking and started singing inspirational music.
Ferlin Husky's ability was not limited to that of a country/pop singer. In 1957, he had a dramatic role on an episode of the Kraft TV Theater. His next film appearances include the movies Mr. Rock and Roll and Country Music Holiday in 1958. He also made two movies with comedian Don Bowman. These were Las Vegas Hillbillies, with Jayne Mansfield (1966), and Hillbillies in a Haunted House with Basil Rathbone (1967). After this, he starred in 14 additional movies.
Another side of Ferlin Husky was as a comedian. He had a hit with the single "Cuzz You're So Sweet", this time reaching the Top Five as "Simon Crum." Crum was a comic philosopher, a typical country bumpkin. One of Crum's other songs, "Country Music Is Here To Stay", made it to Number Two in the country charts in 1958. He did such a good job as this hayseed character that, at one point, many fans thought Crum was a separate person.
Ferlin Husky may not be among the best all-time record sellers, but he certainly is one of the most versatile. He was ahead of his time, becoming the first performer to use a drummer and a modern backing group on the Grand Ole Opry. He was the first Country singer to have a star placed in his honor on Hollywood Boulevard. When Hal Ketchum was added to the Grand Ole Opry in 1994, Ferlin joined him on the stage and the two sang "Wings Of A Dove", thus testifying to the lasting quality of his talent
