Can You Guess Which Country Artist This Kid Grew Up to Be?

Country Kid
Can You Guess Who This Is?

This boy is a country legend. In fact, many call the young man in this picture the greatest of all time. Don’t let the neat outfit fool you — this kid would turn into a hellraiser, but still manage to produce some of the most successful and longest-lasting hits in country music history.

He is probably just 10 in this picture, taken in the early 1940s. Born and raised in Texas, he was forced to sing early by a father who had a horrible drinking problem. Few have faced as many ups and downs as this man did before his death, but he’d be the first to admit that much of his pain was self-inflicted. Do you think you recognize him?
