Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

George Jones - White Lightnin'
George Jones sings his number one hit from 1959, "White Lightin'", in an early 1960s Pet Milk Grand Ole Opry show. He's backed by Gordon Terry and Johnny Cash's Tennessee Three (Luther Perkins on guitar, Marshall Grant on upright bass and W.S. Holland on drums). Some people may don't accept or even know, but this is classic rockabilly and one of rockabilly's rare number one hits.
