Despite its name, it featured many different types of popular music, although the original premise of the show was to showcase country and western music.

The series starred noted singer Art Jarrett, and also featured Paula Wray and the Star Noters. The series aired on Sunday nights at 8 pm EST opposite the popular The Ed Sullivan Show on CBS and The Colgate Comedy Hour on NBC, and was cancelled after the January 7 broadcast.[1]
