Johnny Paycheck first came to public attention in the early 1960s as a honky-tonk singer in the George Jones mold, scoring hits with "A-11" and "That Lovin' Machine." During this era he penned the classics "Apartment #9," an early success for Tammy Wynette, and the eerie "(Pardon Me) I've Got Someone to Kill." A decade later Paycheck reemerged as an avatar of outlaw country, hitting the charts hard with such autobiographical fare as "I'm the Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised," "Drinkin' and Drivin'," and "Take This Job and Shove It." He passed away in February 2003, and was subsequently saluted on TOUCH MY HEART, an all-star tribute album.
