In Loving Memory
February 5, 1923 - March 7, 2013
By the majority of country music fans today, Claude King is probably remembered only for his giant 1962 hit "Wolverton Mountain", if he is remembered at all.
To my mind, this is one of the great injustices in the music industry. Claude made solid country music throughout his career, actually placing 30 songs on the charts over a period of 16 years. He should be remembered as an important part of country music history.
Additionally, Claude King was one of the finest gentlemen it has been my privilege to know.
For these reasons, I decided to publish this website to celebrate Claude’s career and music and to remind people of his significant contributions to the country music industry, as well as to share some of the many photos I accumulated over the course of his career.
Thank you for visiting this site.
