Ric Cartey RIP

The Old-Timey day has to wait til tomorrow. Got something more important to tell you folks. Ric Cartey, famous for "Scratchin' On My Screen", "Born to Love One Woman" or "Young Love", died on August 5, 2009. The rockabilly artist and songwriter was born on January 18, 1937, in Atlanta and recorded his first sides for Stars Records out of his hometown. He then switched to RCA Victor and recorded such songs as "Oooh-Eee", "Heart Throb" (written by Tommy Spurlin), "Born to Love One Woman" (written by Don Johnston) or "Mellow Down Easy". His song "Young Love" was recorded by Sonny James, Tab Hunter, the Crew Cuts, Nat Stuckey and many more.
