Get To Know Them - Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan



Jack Blanchard 

Misty Morgan





The country duo of songwriter/saxophonist/keyboardist Jack Blanchard and his wife, keyboardist Misty Morgan, 
placed 15 singles on the country charts
 between 1969-1975. 
The two were born (three years apart) in the same hospital in Buffalo, NY, 
and both moved to Ohio 
during childhood.
But it wasn’t until they both 
found work in the Florida club circuit 
that they finally met and fell in love. 
Misty was a piano player; 
Jack was scraping by 
as a musician and comedian. 
The two were married in 1967, 
and began writing 
and performing together soon after. 
1969 saw their first charting hit,


“Big Black Bird”

 



 That Record made it 
into the national top 60



Then It Happened!

In 1970
A novelty song
Hit the charts running.
Jack and Misty Got The Call:
"Get Packed, we're selling 50,000 copies a day"!
 The Song?

"Tennessee Bird Walk"
