Personalities | Slim Whitman | Nashville & Beyond | Country
(Vocals, b. 1924)
Tampa, Florida-born Otis Dewey Whitman Jr. is best known for his warbling, high-falsetto vocal flourishes on sentimental hits like ‘Indian Love Call’ (1952) and ‘Secret Love’ (1954). Although Whitman enjoyed only limited success in the United States, he achieved considerable fame in Europe, especially the British Isles. During the 1980s, he experienced resurgence in the USA after years of relative obscurity.
