Singer/narrator/actor Mayf Nutter was born Mayfred Nutter Adamson in Jane Lew, West Virginia to a family of local musicians and appeared on the radio at age 12. After leaving college, he landed in Atlanta in the mid-'60s, where he cut his debut recordings. He moved to California in the late 1960s after recording a few songs, and had his first hit in 1970 with "Hey There Johnny," a tribute to Johnny Cash which reached the Top 70. Over the next two years Nutter had four mid-range hits, including "The Sing-Along Song" (1972) and "Green Door" (1973). During the early '70s, he appeared on Buck Owens' TV Ranch 56 times; he also popped up on such television shows as The Waltons, Falcon Crest, and The Fall Guy, and narrated a few Disney films. During the middle of the decade, Nutter had minor hits with "Sweet Southern Lovin'" and "Goin' Skinny Dippin'." Occasionally, he returned to the East to participate in the Wheeling Jamboree's "Jamboree in the Hills," and in 1978, he penned its theme song. In 1982, Nutter became the first American country performer to appear on Chinese television; soon afterwards, he left the performing side of the music industry to concentrate on other areas of his career. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
