This handsome young man's schooling years were the early-to-mid '50s, but he was well on his way to musical stardom by the dawn of the '60s. His first hit would come in 1962, and a four decade-long career would include over 100 singles and nearly a dozen No. 1 hits. Do you think you recognize this singer?

Try to think of him as not just a country music great, but a fine actor, as well. He starred alongside John Wayne in one memorable role, and a year later alongside Kim Darby in a movie named after his character. His smooth country voice and a song about men in rhinestone suits will forever be his legacy, however. Click the button to see if your guess is right and to see more country stars' yearbook photos.
