Description (Budget priced 4-CD box set) Not only did he establish himself as the King Of Country Music in the 1930s and '40s, Roy Acuff became a renowned champion of traditional values in country music after becoming the leading attraction on WSM's hallowed Grand Ole Opry concerts and broadcasts. In 1962, he was the first living performer to be elected to the Country Music Hall Of Fame, and he enjoyed an unparalled career in which he was still active almost to the month of death at the age of 89 in 1992. This 101 track set includes all of Acuff's important recordings from 1936-1950, with a 40 page illustrated booklet containing his life story and a discography.
