Bob Wills etched his way into America's heart with his whoops and hollers, his dancing fiddle and the inimitable sound of his band, the Texas Playboys. Out of the dustbowl Depression days Wills rose, fiddle in hand, creating the music that lifted the nation's spirit. This original documentary takes a nostalgic look back at the heyday of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys from their early days at KVOO radio - "The Voice of Oklahoma," to the packed dance floor at the legendary Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, and on to national fame from Las Vegas to Hollywood's silver screen.
Western Swing violinist Bob Wills performs his unique blend of country blues, Big Band and country western music in this biographical documentary featuring appearances by Mel Tillis, Eldin Shamblin, Clarence Cagle and others.
