Vocalist
    (December 21, 1926-October 27, 2018)
    Born in Loachapoka, Alabama
    Birth name was Frederick Segrest
    Best known for the #1 Country/Top 20 Pop single ‘Easy Loving’ (1971)
    Also recorded the Top 10 Country singles ‘My Hang-Up Is You’ (1972), ‘Bless Your Heart’ (1972), ‘Got the All Overs for You (All Over Me)’ (1972), ‘Super Kind of Woman’ (1973), ‘Trip to Heaven’ (1973), ‘If You Can’t Feel It (It Ain’t There)’ (1973), ‘Hang In There Girl’ (1974), ‘The Want-Tos’ (1974), ‘My Woman’s Man’ (1974), ‘I’d Like to Sleep ‘Til I Get Over You’ (1975), ‘The First Time’ (1975), ‘Warm Side of You’ (1975) and ‘Why Lovers Turn Into Strangers’ (1977)
    He ran away from home at age twelve.
    After recording for 18 years with only a pair of Top 20 Country hits, Capitol Records had decided to drop him from the label when ‘Easy Loving’ became an unexpected hit.
    ’Easy Loving’ was his only song to cross over to the pop Top 40.
    The Country Music Association decided to name ‘Easy Loving’ its ‘Song of the Year’ two years in a row. (What was up with that? You don’t see AMPAS going, ‘None of the films of 1963 were that good, so we’re giving the Best Picture Oscar to ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ again.’)
    After the country hits dried up, he became a gospel singer.
    He was one of 11 children in a family of sharecroppers.
    He joined the Marines during World War II and saw combat in Guam and Iwo Jima.
    He has black belts in karate and judo, and taught self-defense at the Los Angeles Police Academy before launching his music career.
    ’Easy Loving’ was the first #1 country hit to use the word ‘sexy’ in its lyrics.
