"Chase after the truth like all hell and you'll
free yourself, even though you never touch its coattails" Clarence Darrow
Elvis Presley, Reba McEntire, Roger Miller, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Jerry Lee Lewis, Waylon Jennings, Mel Tillis, Jerry Reed, Tanya Tucker, and Hoyt Axton, just to name a very few, attribute their success to one of the great architects and personalities of music, Mae Boren Axton. Mae reigned as "Queen Mother of Country Music" and "First Lady of Rock 'N Roll" for decades. She was a journalist, schoolteacher, award-winning songwriter, manager, publicist and den mother to the greatest talents in rock, pop, and country. Mae established for herself a unique place in music history when she wrote "Heartbreak Hotel", the first million-selling hit for Elvis Presley.
