US Country and Rockabilly singer Bennie Hess was born February 10, 1914 in Chriesman (Texas). Bennie Hess formed his first band The Rhythm Wranglers in 1940 and played a show on the local radio KFYO Lubbock (Texas). First recorded in 1947 for the Black And White Records and then for a wide variety of labels including his own Spade and Showland company. Bennie spent some time at the Louisiana Hayride in Shreveport (Louisiana), the Big D Jamboree in Dallas (Texas) and the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville(Tennessee). He produced many other artists including his son Troy Hess and was a wheeling and dealing business man and larger than life caracter. . Bennie Hess died November 22, 1984 in Houston (Texas).  Texas Rockabilly and Country at it´s best.

There have been many colorful characters in the record business and Bennie Hess

is way up there on the list. Some, but not all, of his traits were as a hillbilly and

rockabilly singer, guitarist, fanatical follower of (Country) Jimmie Rodgers, an avid

Ernest Tubb stylist,a persistant eccentric record man for over 30 years, a born

optimist, a natural hustler and a raconteur of tall stories - this and much more

was Bennie Hess.  Hillbilly and Rockabilly collectors around the globe are

constantly searching for Bennie´s recordings. So,they will be happy that finally

his first sole album is available without spending hundreds of Dollars for his songs.

Texas born Bennie learned to play guitar from legendary “Blue Yodeler” Jimmie

Rodgers and started recording in the 1940s with local success until 1948 when

his “Tonight And Every Night” went to number 1. He started some own labels

and recorded under various names in the years to follow. While working

with Elvis he saw  that this new Rockabilly music had some potential, and so

he started recording and producing some fine records in this style.Also he never had

any chart success again, in the 70s there was some new interest in him and his

music, which was the reason he re-released some of his old recordings and

also made new ones. He even was part of an BBC TV production called “All You

Need Is Love”.   In later years he started promoting his son Troy as the youngest

honky tonk singer, before Bennie passed away in 1984.
