tHERE ARE 150+ RECORDINGS LISTED ON THE (dAMN CAPSLOCK!) Allmusic Guide (that's better!) . Both Lonnie & Johnny Horton had hits in 1959 but the earliest recording by Driftwood I've found (Voice of the People- I have the CD reissue) is 1963 but I suppose he could have had a single earlier, Lonnie & Johnnie must have heard it somewhere.
