Created in Lubbock, Tx in 1937, Don Bowman satisfied a years as a child ambition by learning to be a disk jockey, functioning initially in Lubbock and Littlefield, sometimes with Waylon Jennings. Both men became close friends and later had written many songs collectively, including “Merely to Satisfy You” and “Anita, You’re Thinking,” which became strikes for Jennings. Bowman’s acoustic guitar playing (supposedly limited by three chords) led him to boast that he was the world’s most severe, which put into the comedy picture he conveyed in creating himself. He confident Chet Atkins into putting your signature on him to RCA Information in 1963 and he quickly had country graph achievement with [sic] “Chit Akins, Make Me a Celebrity.” Further successes included “Giddyup Do-Nut,” “Folsom Jail Blues Zero. 2,” “For Lovin’ You” (a duet with Skeeter Davis), “Dear Harlan Howard,” and lastly, in 1969, his edition of a music co-written with Jennings known as “Poor Ole Ugly Gladys Jones,” which presented guest looks by Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Bobby Bare. He was voted CMA Comedian of the entire year in 1967 and made an appearance in the films The NEVADA Hillbillys and Hillbillys inside a Haunted Home. His 1970 recording Whispering Nation was a tribute to Expenses Anderson.
