    A fixture on the Grand Ole Opry, singer/songwriter Justin Tubb, the
    eldest son of the legendary Ernest Tubb, had a style all his own; but
    for one duet version of "Blue Eyed Elaine" on his 1985 album The
    Legend and Legacy, he always recorded independently of his famous

    Justin was born in San Antonio, Texas and spent most of his life in
    the Lone Star State with his mother Elaine, who separated from
    Ernest in 1948. He got his professional start in local clubs during
    college, and eventually moved to Nashville. At his father's
    suggestion, Tubb got a job working as a deejay in Gallatin,
    Tennessee, where he occasionally performed some of the songs
    he had written, and made his recording debut in 1953 with
    "Ooh-La-La." Throughout the 1950s, Tubb recorded steadily, but
    had only moderate success with his solo efforts. He did a little
    better singing novelty duets with Goldie Hill; in 1954, they
    reached the Top Five with their version of Jim Ed and Maxine
    Brown's "Looking Back to See," followed with the Top 15 "Sure
    Fire Kisses." In 1955, he joined the Opry, and in 1956, he had
    his first solo success with the Top Ten hit "I Gotta Go Get My

    Tubb signed to Starday in the early '60s, released a few albums,
    and toured so much that he was temporarily dropped from the Opry
    for not appearing often enough. After 1963, he signed with RCA and
    released two duets with Lorene Mann, including "We've Gone Too Far
    Again." He had one more minor hit with "But Wait There's More," his
    last chart appearance. He continued to record, tour and appear on
    the Opry through the '70s. He also continued to write songs, and
    his "Lonesome 7-7203" was a number one hit for Hawkshaw Hawkins
    while "Be Glad" became a major hit for Del Reeves. Additionally, his
    "What's Wrong with the Way We're Doing It Now" became a popular
    song with fans of the traditional country sound. Tubb also wrote and
    recorded songs paying tribute to his father, including "Thanks,
    Troubadour, Thanks" and "Just You and Me, Daddy." He died
    January 24, 1998.
