Charlie B. Moore, Jr
Original name: Charles B. Moore
Birth: Feb. 13, 1935
South Carolina, USA
Death: Dec. 24, 1979

Charlie Moore was a Bluegrass legend. He grew up in Piedmont, South Carolina, a small Western town located below the Smokey Mountains. At a young age, Charlie began to develop his own smooth singing style of country bluegrass, more like that of Jim Eanes, Clyde Moody and Red Smiley than that of Bill Monroe or "the lonesome" types of Mountain Bluegrass vocalist. He teamed with another bluegrass great, Bill Napier to record over 108 bluegrass tunes. Charlie was known all over the world,and to this day his recordings are still played in radio stations nationwide. He became ill in Maryland and was rushed to a local hospital where he fell into a coma and later died on Christmas Eve, 1979.
