On this week's Featured Artist Friday, we have some oldschool hits coming your way!

You know it's going to be a good week when you get to hear some great classic tunes from some country music giants.  First, we're going back to 1983 for a song from the great Johnny Lee called "Hey, Bartender".  This song was originally written by rhythm and blues pioneer Floyd Dixon in 1954 and has been covered by numerous artists, including the Blues Brothers, but Lee's was a certifiable hit at #2 on the Billboard Country Charts.  Next up will be one of the first songs to put a young country musician named Johnny Horton on the proverbial map in 1956: "I'm a One-Woman Man".  Recorded at the Bradley Barn Studio in Nashville, it charted at #7 and was Horton's second single to chart.  Third, we have a great Marty Robbins classic called "Billy the Kid".  This song, detailing the life and demise of an American bad-boy icon, comes to you by request!

Recapping for this week:

  • "Hey, Bartender" - Johnny Lee
  • "I'm a One-Woman Man" - Johnny Horton
  • "Billy the Kid" - Marty Robbins
Every Friday, we will be adding a few new songs to the KBEC rotation.  You can hear our choices for the week on the Afternoon Drive.  If you have any comments or suggestions on who we should or shouldn't add, feel free to drop us an e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
