This adds to the history making careers of both artists. The veteran Stonewall is known as a cornerstone, along with Hank Williams and Lefty Frizzell, of the hard driving “honky tonk” sound of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.

When his “Waterloo” single crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Charts, he became one of the first country music artists ever to appear on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand national TV Show. He was also the very first artist ever to record an entire album live at the Grand Ole Opry.

Donny Richmond is known for being at the forefront in the development, during the 1990’s, of the contemporary genre of music now known as “Christian Country”.
