Don Gibson

Born in Shelby, North Carolina, in 1928, Don Gibson would have one of the more prolific careers as a songwriter and performer in Country Music.  Coming to Nashville in 1957, worked with Chet Atkins to produce two of his biggest hits, “Oh, Lonesome Me” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You”.  No one hit wonder, Don Gibson would chart over and over with such country standards as, “Look Who’s Blue”, “Don’t Tell Me Your Troubles”, “Lonesome Number One”, “Woman (Sensuous Woman)” and, in my humble opinion, the perfect country song, “Sea of Heartbreak”.

Don Gibson is a member of the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, The Country Music Hall of Fame and the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.  He passed away from natural causes in 2003.
