T. Texas Tyler

Real Name:
David Luke Myrick
Profile:
Born: June 20, 1916, Mena, Arkansas, USA
Died: January 28, 1972, Springfield, Missouri, USA

An American country music singer and songwriter primarily known for his 1948 hit, "The Deck of Cards".

Tyler wrote and recorded "The Deck of Cards" in 1948. The spoken-word hit single, which was his biggest hit, tells the story of a World War II soldier who explains how a deck of playing cards serves him as a Bible, an almanac and a prayer book. He followed that smash with another recitation, the tear-wrenching Mary Jean Shurtz composition "Dad Gave My Dog Away". His popularity resulted in a booking at New York City's Carnegie Hall.
