    Description

    Ernest Tubb Suit Designed by Texas Mesquite. Ernest Tubb had a career that spanned half a century, from his first radio date in 1932 until his death in 1984. He had a long association with Decca Records, beginning with his recording of "Blue-Eyed Elaine" in 1940. After his song, "Walkin' the Floor Over You" became a country classic in 1943, Tubb would achieve movie roles, a spot in the Opry, and major stardom with his own show, "The "Midnight Jamboree." During his career Ernest Tubb racked up over fifty hit songs, many being his own compositions. He was the 6th member elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1965. Despite suffering from emphysema, he continued to perform to packed houses right up until his death. Tubb certainly left a legend and a legacy for his legion of fans. Texas Mesquite designed this blue two-piece traditional western style suit for the country legend. The coat and pants are in good condition and would be excellent for display.
