 Tennessee Ernie Ford - Pandora Internet Radio
His popularity and recognition transcended country music, and he was among the earliest and most successful "crossover" artists to come out of country music, paving the way for such diverse popular culture figures as Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Reba McEntire, and many more.
Born Ernest Jennings Ford in 1919, he was a native of Bristol, TN, a town that subsequently came to be regarded -- thanks to the Ralph Peer field recording sessions (featuring Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family) conducted there in 1927 -- as one of the birthplaces of modern country music.
He was immensely popular as the 1960s commenced and remained a popular fixture on television for most of that decade, and his recordings were as ambitious as they were successful.

Ford developed the Mustang for a special mid-season debut at the New York World’s Fair in April 1964.
This 1965 Ford Mustang coupe, manufactured in October 1964, belonged to Eleanor McMillan, a conservator at the Smithsonian Institution.

 Popular Ford Spectator, The - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Fords were reasonably priced and cheap to maintain; as the car-buying public increased, more and more bought them.
The result is that Ford's £1.84 billion profit last year put it at number six in the unofficial world ranking for car-makers, way behind Toyota's winning £5.88 billion, although comfortingly ahead of that other underperforming giant, 11th-placed VW (£485 million).
Whether it will raise Ford's market profile for those aspiring to high automotive status is more doubtful, because for many people a Ford is a Ford is a Ford and those who aspire to Jaguars, Land Rovers, Volvos or even Aston Martins will continue to do so.

To address the problem, Ford engineers recommended lowering the vehicle's center of gravity and widening its track by two inches to increase its stability.
Ford marketing consultant Martin Goldfarb tells FRONTLINE that such criticism of Ford executives is unfair.
