Charlie C. Poole
Birth: Mar. 22, 1892, USA
Death: May 21, 1931, USA

County Musician. He was a pioneer country music recording artist with the "North Carolina Ramblers" from 1918 to 1931. A popularizer of old-time music, he was an innovator who set the stage for Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams. His songs portrayed his hard-living lifestyle. His Columbia recording career lasted from July 1925 to September 1930. Some of his 60 recordings include:“Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down,” “White House Blues," “Take a Drink On Me,” “Old And Only In the Way”. In 1931 Hollywood offered him a deal to use a song of his for a movie. He went on a drinking binge and never returned.  (bio by: Tom Denardo)

So sad, drinking ruins so many lives. Who knows how far you could have gone. May you sleep in peace always.
