About Tom T. Hall...

Tom T. Hall & Dixie Hall

Tom T. Hall was born Thomas Hall on Monday 25 May 1936 in Olive Hill, Kentucky and is affectionately known as 'The Storyteller' within the country music genre.

Tom T. Hall used to get up in the wee small hours of the morning at the age of four in order to hear The Grand Ole Opry on the radio; by the age of nine, he had written his first song.

Tom T. Hall dropped out of school when he was fifteen years old in order to work in a garment factory by day and in a bluegrass band by night.

As a teenager, Tom T. Hall organised a band called The Kentucky Travellers, which performed before movies for a traveling theatre.

During a stint in the United States Army, Tom T. Hall performed over the Armed Forces Radio Network and wrote comic songs about Army experiences.

Tom T. Hall's early career included being a radio announcer at WRON, a local radio station in Ronceverte, West Virginia; he was also an announcer at WVRC Radio in Spencer, West Virginia in the 1960s.

Jimmy C. Newman: 'Greatest Hits' (Plantation Records, 1976)

Tom T. Hall's big song-writing break came in 1963, when Jimmy C. Newman (Monday 29 August 1927 - Saturday 21 June 2014) recorded his song 'DJ for a Day'; the track reached No.9 on the Billboard country music singles chart in 1963 and was subsequently included on Jimmy C. Newman's 'Greatest Hits' (Plantation Records, 1976).

On Wednesday 1 January 1964, Tom T. Hall moved to Nashville and, within months, his compositions, recorded by various country music artists, were climbing the Billboard country music singles chart.

Jeannie C. Riley: 'Harper Valley PTA' (Plantation Records, 1968)

One of his earliest successful song-writing ventures was 'Harper Valley PTA', which was recorded in 1968 by Jeannie C. Riley (No.1 for three weeks in September / October 1968), sold over six million copies and won both a Grammy Award and a CMA Award.

Tom T. Hall's 'Harper Valley PTA', which later inspired a motion picture and television program of the same name, was included on Jeannie C. Riley's 'Harper Valley PTA' (Plantation Records, 1968).

Other notable Tom T. Hall country music hit singles, which were recorded by fellow country music artists, included 'DJ for a Day' by Jimmy C. Newman (Monday 29 August 1927 - Saturday 21 June 2014) (No.9, 1963), 'Pool Shark' by Dave Dudley (Thursday 3 May 1928 - Monday 22 December 2003) (No.1 for one week in May 1970), 'That's How I Got to Memphis' by Bobby Bare (No.3, 1970) and 'I'm Not Ready Yet' by George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013) (No.2, 1980).

As a result of Jeannie C. Riley's success with 'Harper Valley PTA', producer Jerry Kennedy persuaded Tom T. Hall to sign a recording contract with Mercury Records so that he would have an opportunity to record his own songs and become a recording artist in his own right.
