Meet David Frizzell, the kid brother of Country Music legend Lefty Frizzell. At an early age, David was on the road working with his famous brother, offered the job to replace Buddy Holly after his fatal plane crash, and went on to record some of Country Music’s greatest hits, including a song that initially failed at radio, but was made so popular in a Clint Eastwood movie, that it got a second chance on the air… and became a #1 hit.

David shares the history with his brother, what took to make it in the music business back in the 70’s, what it was like to work with such legends as Merle Haggard, and how he still performs 60 years later.
