Johnny Horton.jpg1929:  Johnny Horton is born in Los Angeles. His biggest hit is The Battle of New Orleans, which tops Chart Toppers’s Hot 100 for six weeks in 1959 and sells more than 1 million copies. We lose him far too soon on November 4, 1960, when he dies after a car crash while driving home to Shreveport following a concert in Austin, Texas.
