In 1959, songwriter Dorsey Burnette offered the song Tall Oak Tree to Ricky Nelson, who turned it down. Dorsey then recorded his own version, which was released on the Era label and scored a #23 hit, the first of the Burnette brothers to have appeared on the chart. Whilst several other labels Dorsey had recorded for in the past when through their vaults looking for material, it was Era that scored a follow-up hit, this time with Hey Little One. Whilst Dorsey would later find considerable success within the country music market, these early recordings hint at the rockabilly with which he started his career.
