JOE DOE BY VINTAGE ~ LUCKY BUCK GUITAR
‘Lucky Buck’, owned by Leslie Coal
Leslie ‘Lucky Buck’ Coal topped the Billboard Country Music charts in 1952 with his heartbreak inspired single, “Whiskey for Breakfast”. Flushed with sudden success, Coal signed numerous endorsement deals, the most lucrative of which was a contract to become a regular fixture on the WHB national radio show Giddy Up Y’all!. Coal’s initial role on the morning show was to sing cover songs of the day.
