Thread Name: Lyr Req: Battle of Bull Run (Johnny Horton)
Subject: RE: Johnny Horton: Battle of Bull Run
Fess Parker did in fact play Davy Crockett in Disney's early pseudonomous TV series, in which the theme song was the Ballad of Davy Crockett ("Born on a mountaintop ion Tennessee...").
But that is an entirely different hit from the Fifties. Horton had nothing to do with the Crockett ballad as far as I know.
