In , the Delmore Brothers' manager, George Peek, hired them because the Delmores had split up, and he wanted a duo to take over their radio spot in Greensboro, North Carolina. Wartime gas rationing derailed them in Knoxville.
Johnnie worked civilian jobs for a while, then assembled a troupe in Knoxville with Eddie Hill and Chet Atkins. During their year back in Nashville, they began recording for Apollo, then recorded again for King as part of the King Sacred Quartet.
Those early records sold negligibly. The first session included one of the duo's finest ever performances, What About You.

Tillman, incidentally, says that Nelson King became more forthright about asking for a piece of songs after Hank Williams gave him a share of There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight.
Heart Trouble was yet another Jim Anglin tune, and once again Steve Sholes came from the control room to play sticks. Looking once more for a hit, they returned to the Latin feel at an April session. I said, 'Well let me holler out, we make love to the rhumba beat. The Anglin Brothers had sung it back in the s, and Davis had recorded in March when it was credited to himself and A.
