From the back cover: Red was very persistent over the years in learning to play the guitar. This persistence paid off when John Lair of the Renfro Valley Barn Dance heard him and offered him a job on the barn dance. He was to be a member of the staff as a back up guitarist. Liking his playing, Mr. Lair discovered Red could sing, then he was given a featured spot as a vocalist.

The barn dance job also led to a job on the well known Renfro Valley Sunday Morning Gatherin, a program heard through out most of the U.S. and Canada. Said to be the second oldest continuing radio program in the U.S. As well as playing guitar on this program, Red was also asked to sing in the Home Folks Quartet, a gospel group formed by John Lair for the sunday morning program.
