Country Artists We’ve Lost in 2012: Cois ‘Pee Wee’ Moultrie

Pee Wee Moultrie

One of few remaining survivors from Hank Williams‘ playing days died on Jan. 15, 2012. Cois ‘Pee Wee’ Moultrie partnered with Williams when the two were just teenagers. Recently, their recordings of ‘Fan It’ and ‘Alexander’s Ragtime Band’ were uncovered for the ‘Hank Williams: The Legend Begins’ box set. Moultrie only played with Williams for a few years, but even after a stint in the Army he continued to keep playing music recreationally. “He always had a gig on Friday and Saturday nights,” Patti Bayless, his youngest daughter, told the Destin Log. “It was fun even though at the time I was in college and liked rock ‘n’ roll.” Moultrie is survived by his wife, two daughters, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was 89-years-old at the time of his death.
