Earl Scruggs

On January 6, 1924, Earl Scruggs was born in Cleveland County, North Carolina, near Boiling Springs. If you aren't familiar with any other of his work, you would surely recognize "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" from the Beverly Hillbillies, which he performed with his partner, Tennessee's Lester Flatt.
