One of Danny Dill's mentors, Whitey Ford, aka "The Duke Of Paducah", impressed upon Danny early on that "quality is always in style".
At a recent "International Folk Music Festival" in Vancouver, B.C. Danny Dill was introduced as "Part of the North American Historical Cultural Memory". Many backstage, and in the audience nodded in full agreement as Danny dug into his vast store of talent and experience to give an unforgettable performance.
Seventy years of trial and errors have honed the Dill of today into a completely delightful composite of songs, recitations, and comedy.
Danny came to the Grand Ole Opry in 1946 with his wife Annie Lou. They joined the greats of the day in eleven years of Opry and road-show work.
In a day when one was just called the emcee, Danny fronted for the likes of Ernest Tubb, Eddy Arnold, The Duke Of Paducah, and yes, Hank Williams.
In the '50's, Danny joined the first great wave of writers; Willie Nelson, Wayne P. Walker, Mel Tillis, Marijohn Wilkin, and Roger Miller in setting the tone, and pace for all of the thousands of writers that came later.
Lately, Dill has done acting chores in many music videos; "Walls Can Fall" - George Jones, "Tips Of My Fingers" - Steve Wariner, "Put Yourself In My Shoes" - Clint Black, "That's Good" - Tim Mencey, and for Prarie Oyster, Johnny Cash, and Sawyer Brown.
Danny has recorded for Victor, MGM, Liberty ABC Paramount, and Bulbitt Records. The standards "Long Black Veil", and "Detroit City" have been recorded in 22 languages, and these songs alone, not to mention the hundreds of others, were enough to hoist Danny into the select world of Hall Of Fame writers in the National Songwriters Association International.
Get to know Danny Dill, and you'll find a complete entertainer, walking calmly with style and grace, to ever greater accomplishments.
