Happy to announce country legend, Faron Young, as the latest Platinum Artist now available at getconquer.com!
A huge player in the world of Nashville country music, Honky Tonk singer Faron Young was not an idle man by any means. A musician, a businessman, an actor, and a soldier; he took his love for music and payed it back ten fold.
Young really started seeing the limelight when he joined as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, was signed by Capitol Records, and went on to join the army as a member of the Entertainments Unit, boosting morale as he sang to the troops during the Korean War. It wasn’t long before Young started coming out with hit after hit, maintaining his streak clear into the 1970’s; his first number one single being “Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young”.
Young also began acting in many western themed films, his most notable role being in “Hidden Gun” where he obtained the lasting nickname “The Young Sheriff”.
Throughout his life, Faron invested a great deal in the city of Nashville. Founding Music City News, running a booking agency, funding book and music publishers, real estate, race tracks; but despite all of his business ventures Faron continued to perform the music that he loved. And you can find that music right here on GetConquer.com
