David Frizzell began performing and touring with his older brother, Lefty Frizzell as a teenager. He began recording country and rockabilly albums for Columbia Records at the age of 18. After a four-year stint in the military, Frizzell re-signed with Columbia and continued his recording career. He has headlined country shows in Las Vegas and was part of the duo “Frizzell and West,” who recorded the hit single “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma.” As a solo artist, Frizzell is known for his chart-topping hit “I’m Gonna Hire A Wino To Decorate Our Home.” He has won numerous awards as part of Frizzell and West and as a solo artist and has been nominated for three Grammys.
Helen Cornelius began her career as a songwriter in Nashville, having had songs recorded by musicians such as the Oak Ridge Boys, Reba McEntire, Jeannie C. Riley and Connie Smith by the mid-1970s. She received her first recording contract with RCA records in 1975. From there, she became an integral part of the Jim Ed Brown Show, where she spent more than four years. She has since toured with Conway Twitty, played the lead in a road show revival of “Annie Get Your Gun,” toured with the Statler Brothers and played a variety of other engagements from dinner theaters to the Grand Ladies of Country Music Show in Branson, Missouri.
