Skip Graves

Skip Graves started in music business as early as 1951 when he got his first job playing live radio in Jackson, Tennessee. He never really pursued his active musical career, though. He mostly worked as DJ but also wrote about 70 songs that were recorded by other artists, the best known being "If I'm A Fool For Leaving" which was recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens, Gene Watson and Norma Jean. Throughout the 1960's he recorded several singles for small labels, all of them in strict country style.
