An early collaborator was Jimmy Gateley, whose "myspace" webpage has this to say: "In 1954, Jimmy, along with steel guitar player Harold Morrison, also of Springfield, joined Dusty Owens' band, The Rodeo Boys, in Wheeling, West Virginia, and played the Wheeling Jamboree. A year later, the boys returned to Springfield to be part of Red Foleys Ozark Jubilee, before pushing on to Nashville in 1963."
