On this day December 26, 1941

Born on this day in Puryear, Tennessee, was Rattlesnake Annie, country singer and songwriter. She earned her nickname as a child from her respect of snakes. She recorded her debut album, Rattlesnakes and Rusty Water, on her own label, Rattlesnake Records. At the time, it was unusual for a woman to play guitar in public, and it was also rare for a woman to produce her own songs.
