Powered by Audioscrobbler™Molly O'Day (July 9, 1923 – December 5, 1987) was an American country music vocalist who had some degree of fame and commercial success in the late 1940s. Despite her short recording career of 5 years, she became a legend in her own lifetime and her lasting influence has proven massive.

Born Lois LaVerne Williamson on a farm in Pike County, Kentucky. Molly played and sang in numerous outfits around West Virginia with little success until in in the summer of 1946, the head of Acuff-Rose, Fred Rose heard her sing Tramp on the Street. He almost immediately arranged for her a recording contract with Columbia Records. Molly O'Day & The Cumberland Mountain Folks made their first recordings on December 16, 1946. On these first recordings, bluegrass legend Mac Wiseman appeared on bass. During her first years as a recording artist Molly O'Day's popularity increased but she started to have second doubts about her life's choice. By 1951 she had made her last recording session for Columbia Records.
