A Product Of Decca Records

From Billboard - October 16, 1954: The Willburn Brothers, Doyle and Teddy, a regular feature of the Webb Pierce show, announced here today that they are leaving the Pierce unit November 1 to go under the personal management of Hubert Long, who also has Faron Young under his wing. The break with Pierce is entirely amicable, the brothers announced.

The Wilburn lads worked with Pierce in 1951 on the "Louisiana Hayride" out of Shreveport, La., when the army grabbed them off. They've been back with Pierce as a regular feature since January of this year. Recently they signed a Decca recording contract, being brought to the attention of Paul Cohen, Decca A&R man, by Pierce.

Their second release on Decca "Let Me Be The First To Know" and "Carefree Moments," will be out Monday (11).
