From Dirt Poor Country Boy to Country Music Star
Produced and narrated by Louie Johnston Jr.
As seen on FOX Network. Incredible true story. Country Music Star Clyde Beavers lived the American dream with relentless passion he shared in every word of every song he wrote or sang, because every song was from his heart, and his heart was full. Clyde recorded for Decca Records, Dot Records and other labels in pursuit of his dream.
Clyde Beavers recorded the Japanese love song “Sukiyaki” which became the #1 Hit Record on the Billboard Charts. Clyde sang to America on Dick Clark’s American Band Stand television program with a couple of musicians playing for him by the name of Ray Stevens and Jerry Reed, who became stars themselves.
Clyde Beavers made his living writing and singing songs…one of his favorites was “Beggar to a King,” so we Salute Clyde Beavers now with that theme he loved so much, “from a beggar to a king”.
