Long Description:
The McCoy Brothers
Joe McCoy and his brother Charlie McCoy, both born on a farm near Raymond, performed and recorded widely during the pre-World War II era, but their most important legacy may rest with the songs they wrote or cowrote. These include "Corrine Corrina," which became a folk music standard. "When the Levee Breaks," which was covered by Led Zeppelin, and "Why Don't You Do Right," a hit for both blues singer Lil Green and pop star Peggy Lee.
