A songwriter and guitarist within the western golf swing custom, Ted Daffan emerged from a dust-soaked 1930s Tx to art enduring tunes that mined the vintage themes from the honky-tonk life-style: misfortune, cheatin’, and drinkin’. After nation star Milton Brownish persuaded Daffan to close his Houston-based musical repair center and try his fortune like a performer, it didn’t consider the songwriter lengthy to pencil his first strike, “Vehicle Drivin’ Blues,” for bandleader Cliff Bruner. The tune is normally regarded as one that made the truck drivers mythos that could appear frequently within the years of nation music to arrive. The success resulted in a offer for Daffan’s very own music group, the Texans, as well as for the next many years he have scored strikes with such music as 1940’s “Concerned Mind” as well as the title-says-it-all-number “Blessed TO REDUCE,” amongst others. The last mentioned song discovered its inspiration within a remark Daffan overheard as he viewed a poker video game. In the 1960s Daffan drifted in the performing aspect of music entirely, creating a effective Nashville publishing firm with Hank Snow and finally time for Houston to keep on the business enterprise side before retiring from music entirely, with his popularity intact.
