Coauthor; country singer from Atlanta, GA. B-side of Oooh-Eeee (Jerry Reed). Capitol A&R-man Ken Nelson encouraged Sonny James to record this B-side. Reason enough for RCA Victor to purchase Cartey's Stars masters.

Good example of a valuable copyright: Young Love by Tab Hunter followed Young Love by Sonny James at the top of the US charts and also peaked at n°1 UK, where sixteen years later Donny Osmond had another n°1 with this same song.
