Biography "Country" Johnny Mathis_section_0

John Mathis was born on September 28, 1930, in Maud, Texas. "Country" Johnny Mathis_sentence_4

He played on Louisiana Hayride from 1951 to 1960, as a solo artist and as a member of the musical duo Jimmy & Johnny (with Jimmy Lee Fautheree). "Country" Johnny Mathis_sentence_5

Mathis left the group to go solo in the middle of the 1950s, leaving Fautheree's brother, Lynn, to fill his shoes. "Country" Johnny Mathis_sentence_6

Jimmy and Lynn, however, saved the name Jimmy & Johnny, which proved ideal for Mathis who returned to the group from 1959 to 1961. "Country" Johnny Mathis_sentence_7

As a solo artist, he released several singles for D Records, Decca, United Artists, and Little Darlin'. "Country" Johnny Mathis_sentence_8
