About Ferlin Husky
The Missouri born Husky was a major star in the 1960s with his lush Nashville Sound records, characterized by his biggest hit "Wings of a Dove". Husky's voice is an amazing instrument able to swoop from a rumbling baritone up into a quavering tenor, giving his records a sweeping, dramatic grandeur. In the 1950s he recorded a number of Honky Tonk sides under the name Terry Preston, which he thought sounded less "country" than his given name. when he signed to Capitol records in the 1960s he changed back to his given name and began hitting the charts. His hits had all but dried up by the 1970s, but he remained a popular concert attraction.
