Biography

Tex Williams (23rd August 1917-11th October 1985) was an American country musician from Ramsey, Illinois. He helped move rural and acoustic country music to dance-oriented mainstream pop Western swing. His popularity peaked in the late 1940s. Williams is perhaps best-known for this talking blues style; his biggest hit, the novelty song “Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette)” appears in the hit film Thank You for Smoking.

    it's because people are too lazy to browse his music, and you can find this song almost in every country music compilation. btw, in my opinion, it's his best song, and also it's not that country as it seems, it has some jazz in it
