The triumvirate of Carroll, Fields, and lyricist Ballard MacDonald launched the compositional boat "On the Mississippi" in 1912; this is generally considered the first of Fields' songs to be a hit, recorded by the era's major artists such as the American Quartet, Billy Murray, and Collins & Harlan.
Fields and Hall got in early on the hillbilly music fad of the late '20s and early '30s, writing and recording material such as "The Terrible Mississippi Flood" and "The End of the Shenandoah" and presenting it on some of the earliest, if hardly most authentic, radio broadcasts of rural music.
While records were still being made, Fields revisited his talents as a "war" singer and cut his own version of the popular "Der Fuehrer's Face." His collaboration with Hall ending in 1941, Fields also decided to return to his roots, the sacred music he had performed as a child in Utica.
