Chanteur et Leader Western Swing US.

In the mid-fifties a musician named Tiny Colbert fronted a band that included musicians, Eddie Miller and Durwood Haddock who were destined to become famous song-writers. Colbert played in the Odessa and Lamesa area of West Texas at this time and his band was popular there. Haddock had come into the area to work as a disc jockey at Lamesa, Tx and had first played fiddle with Colbert at Danceland in Odessa in c.1954. There is little doubt that the Tiny Colbert band played a lot of western swing and Haddock seemed to have also been a singer as well as fiddler. He had several 78 rpm releases under the name 'Durwood Daily' back then. Although the band that Tiny Colbert founded in Odessa has been mostly forgotten Miller and Haddock co-wrote the country standard 'There She Goes' and their creation lives on! Eddie Miller also co-wrote another great standard 'Please Release Me' and he also fronted a successful band "Eddie Miller & the Oklahomans". This band also toured Texas and played some western swing
