Chanteur Country US né le 6 Septembre 1911 à Warrior (Alabama). Zeke Clements a enregistré pour Bullet, MGM, Dot, Janet, Black & White, Blazon et Liberty Records. Il est décédé le 4 Juin 1994.

A country music personality in the "Cowpoke" tradition that Roy Rogers and Gene Autry eventually made famous, Zeke Clements was already a radio personality at the tender age of 17 when he was hired as part of Chicago's famous National Barn Dance radio program. Clements would later go on to become a regular on the two other country radio shows of importance, WSM's Grande Ole Opry and the Louisiana Hayride, before enjoying success as a clean cut performer of hits such as "Smoke on the Water" and "Blue Mexico Skies." For trivia buffs, Clements is also the original voice behind Bashful, one of Snow White's Seven Dwarfs.
