Product Description
Don Cherry is the only professional golfer with two Top 5 hits. Or the only singer with a million selling record who finished in the Top Ten of a U.S. Open Golf Tournament.

Born in Texas, Don sang with the Jan Garber Orchestra upon leaving the Army after the Second World War. Decca signed him in 1950 and one of his first sides Mona Lisa reached #10 in September 1950 winning the singer with the mellow baritone voice a huge following. On his third recording session, Don struck pay dirt with Thinking Of You, which shot to #4 on the charts by December 1950, selling over 700,000 copies.

Don's follow-up hit was Vanity which rose to #11 in 1951 and remained on the charts for 13 weeks. While his musical career took off, Don continued making a name in golf. From 1952 to 1961, he played in the Masters a record nine times. The 1955 Walker Cup Tournament in Scotland proved a high point for Don where he helped secure a U.S. Team victory.

Don's tenure with Decca resulted in over 70 recordings. Most have never been available in digital format and this double CD set features 51 sides from the Decca period.

In 1954, Don signed with Columbia. The following year Don had his biggest hit with Band of Gold, also included on this CD, which reached #4 on the national charts and selling in excess of a million copies.

After turning pro in 1962, Don continued to perform, appearing on The Perry Como Show, The Jerry Lewis Telethon and American Bandstand. In 1995, Don was inducted into the Texas Golf Hall Of Fame. In recent years, Don has recorded independently; including two albums with Willie Nelson ("Augusta" and "It's Magic") and "Without A Song: A Tribute to Perry Como."
