Ricky Nelson started out his career as the son of two consummate entertainers, Harriet and Ozzie Nelson. Like his parents, Ricky started out his career as a as an actor. In fact, he, along with brother David, played Ozzie and Harriet's son on 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet' in the 1950s and early 1960s. Soon he became a teen heartthrob, which lead to more than just acting. Ricky was offered an opportunity in music, and he eagerly grabbed it. Soon released his music, and he was on his way. It seemed like he was born to make music. In 1961, Ricky Nelson had his second big hit of his career, and there were more to come. The song, written by Jerry Fuller, could be one of my favorites. This single made it to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is Ricky Nelson singing "Travelin' Man".
Have a great weekend!
