Biography

Carson Jay Robison (born August 4, 1890 in Oswego, Labette County, Kansas; died March 24, 1957 in Pleasant Valley, New York) was an American old-time country and western musician. The son of a champion fiddler, Robison worked making music from a young age. On numerous recordings by other musicians, he recorded a equally large number of his own records.

He’s also known for his recordings done for the U.S. military during World War II, much of it making fun of Axis leaders. The heyday of his career was the years 1928 to 1951. Sometimes labeled as “the granddaddy of the hillbillies,” the All Music Guide has praised him as a “singer, guitarist, whistler, and actor” with such a “sheer diversity of his talent”.
