Country Western Gospel quartet The Statler Brothers got their start in 1955 performing in local area churches. A decade later their big break came when offered the gig of providing vocal backup for The Man In Black himself, Mr. Johnny Cash. After an 8 year run with Cash The Statler Brothers (named after a brand of facial tissue, the band often joked they could very well have been called The Kleenex Brothers) went on to sell millions of records of their own. After a near 50 year run the band quietly retired in 2002 #thestatlerbrothers #statlerbrothers #gospel #countrywestern #johnnycash #kleenex #vinyl #album #albumart #albumcover #coverart
The Message of the Song
The song “Just a Little Talk With Jesus” is a hopeful song that reminds us praying or talking to God will solve everything.
