In 1943 a country singer who really no one has ever heard of named Ted West wrote a song called You’ll Still Be In My Heart. The song was bought and rewritten by another country singer named Buddy Starcher later in that same year.
In 1945 the wonderful cowboy crooner T. Texas Tyler recorded the song which by now was owned by an associate of Starcher’s named Clark Van Ness of the Dixie Music Company.
You’ll Still Be In My Heart, T. Texas Tyler
Cold, Cold Heart, Hank Williams
You bet your ass Van Ness sued Williams. But only after Cold, Cold Heart hit number one.
