Wilma Lee Cooper

Wilma Lee Cooper was from Valley Head, WV, about 20 miles south of my hometown, and her husband Stoney (with the fiddle) was from Harman, 20 miles to the east. Their daughter Carol Lee leads the backup singers on the Grand Ole Opry now. They had another song called "the West Virginia Polka" which is high on my list of things to learn.

In this video they employ the popular technique of cutting to the electric guitar when the banjo player takes a solo.
