Hank Williams. Besides being Lando Calrissian's uncle and Jimmy Carter's son-in-law was also famous for other things, including playing the guitar, singing, and standing in front of flags. He did a parody of "On Top of Spaghetti" which instead was about a mountain and was much less funny than the original, but you must remember this was a different time. (The title of this comes from Chuck Prophet's cover of a Duke's of Hazard song.)

It is often said that the best things are made in Pennsylvania. When it comes to acoustic guitars, the truth rings out for anyone who cares to listen. This factory in Nazareth, PA is the holy land for strummers and pickers from around the world.
(Note: I said "strummers" and not "Mummers" which are the abominable exception that proves the rule about great stuff coming from PA.)
