Born in Georgia, Clayton McMichen first became famous as one of the legendary Skillet Lickers, playing old-time style fiddle. Later, with his own band The Georgia Wildcats, he played a more modern swing-type fiddle. McMichen recorded with the legendary Jimmie Rodgers and wrote Rodgers’ well-known “Peach Pickin’ Time In Georgia.” He was at WCKY in Covington, Kentucky and WLW in Cincinnati in the 1930s, and was an influence on the generation of fiddlers that followed him.
