Ernest "Ernie" Ashworth was another C & W almost was. He had a number one country hit with "Talk Back Trembling Lips" in early 1963, about a year before Johnny Tillotson's top 40 hit in 1964. He had several top 10
C & W hits in addition to "Talk Back Trembling Lips."

The Tillotson recording was pretty much a note-for-note copy of Ashworth, just without the pronounced county twang.

This album was re-recordings of his earlier hits on Hickory Records. Although his career peaked in the early 60s, Ashworth continued to perform until his death in 2009 at age 80.
