Gordon Terry was one of the finest fiddlers in bluegrass. The Decatur, AL, native first gained national exposure when he joined the Grand Ole Opry at age 19. He remained there for eight years and during that time recorded a few solo singles for different labels as well as played with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys. In 1957, he had his most popular single with "Wild Honey." He made his film debut in the Western Hidden Guns and moved to L.A. in 1958 to continued his solo career. Terry also turned up on different television shows, including the Sky King series. He returned to Tennessee in the late '60s to do side and session work and in 1977 released Disco Country. In 1981, Terry issued Rockin' Fiddle. That same year, he and Bob Wills were inducted into the Fiddlers Hall of Fame.
