Willie Nix — Trucking Little Woman


Willie Nix, born 1922 in Memphis, TN, started tap dancing as a child and in the 40’s worked as both  dancer and comedian in a number of variety shows. He recorded for Memphis and Chicago labels (RPM, Sun, Chess and Chance) but never saw the success he definitely deserved.

Willie Nix played with such Blues greats as B. B. King, Joe Hill, Elmore Morris and Sonny Boy Williamson.  He played the drums and guitar.

His trademark driving beat tunes and witty lyrics can be found on numerous compilation albums.

  1. I am really enjoying your site. Besides the music, I appreciate the information you provide.

    • Thank you! My mission is to keep under-appreciated artists from being completely forgotten. If the info I offer arouses interest in their stories and music, I feel a step closer to that goal.
