Skeeter Davis

After the tragic death of her singing partner, Betty Jack Davis, Skeeter carried on, first with Betty Jack's sister and then as a solo performer. She signed on as one of Ernest Tubb's supporting acts and joined the Opry. Along the way, she divorced husband #1 and married WSM dee-jay Ralph Emery. Slowly, the hits began to come; the first was an answer to Hank Locklin's Geisha Girl. ProducerChet Atkins kept the faith during some lean years. Answer songs were in vogue, and Don Robertson and Hal Blair wrote their own sequel to Please Help Me I'm Falling. Floyd Cramer was on hand to replicate his piano part and Skeeter double-tracked her vocal to good effect. Hank Garland echoplexed his guitar and played fabulously understated fills around Skeeter and Floyd Cramer. While Robertson and Blair make little secret of the fact that they'd been cheating on their wives (and Robertson's 1960 divorce seemed to bear it out), the sequel was chocked full of family values. In the fall of 1960 I'm Falling Too reached #2 on the country charts and #39 on the pop charts.
