The Mills Brothers, sometimes billed as The Four Mills Brothers,

were an American jazz and pop vocal quartet of the 20th century who made more than 2,000 recordings that combined sold more than 50 million copies,

and garnered at least three dozen gold records….

The group was originally composed of four brothers born in Piqua, Ohio, 25 miles (40 km) north of Dayton:

John Jr. (October 19, 1910- January 23, 1936) bass vocalist and guitarist,

Herbert (April 2, 1912 – April 12, 1989) tenor,

Harry (August 9, 1913 – June 28, 1982) baritone, and

Donald (April 29, 1915 – November 13, 1999) lead tenor.

Their parents were John Hutchinson (February 11, 1882 – December 8, 1967) and Eathel Mills. John Sr. owned a barber shop and founded a barbershop quartet, called the ‘"Four Kings of Harmony"’.

John Hutchinson Mills senior was the son of William Hutchinson Mills and Cecilia Simms who lived in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.

The Carter Family

The Carter Family was a traditional American folk music group that recorded between 1927 and 1956.

Their music had a profound impact on bluegrass, country, Southern Gospel, pop and rock musicians as well as on the U.S. folk revival of the 1960s.

They were the first vocal group to become country music stars.

Their recordings of such songs as "Wabash Cannonball", "Can the Circle Be Unbroken", "Wildwood Flower" and "Keep On the Sunny Side" made them country standards.
