Rock Singer. Born in Bloomington, Indiana, Helms began his music career performing in the Monroe County Jamboree, along with his father and brother. Later with his brother they created the musical group, 'The Helms Brothers' and they became a regional attraction. He later appeared on the "Haycroft Frolic Show" and was persuaded to move to Nashville and sing backup for Ernest Tubb on one of his sessions. Tubb was so impressed with Helms that he recommended him to the Decca Record Label. He released four albums, "I'm The Man" "Sorry My Name Isn't Fred" "All For You" and "Pop-A-Billy" in 1983. He recorded many songs including, "Fraulein" "My Special Angel" "Just A Little Lonesome" "Jacqueline" "Lonely River Rhine" "He Thought He'd Die Laughing" "So Long" and "Mary Goes' Round." On December 23, 1957, he released the song, "Jingle Bell Rock" on the Decca Record Label. The song went to #6 on the Pop Chart and would become a classic Christmas hit, as well as Helm's signature song.
