Biography and career

Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Pat Boone has said that he is a direct descendant of the American pioneer Daniel Boone.[1] He grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, attended David Lipscomb College and began recording in 1954 for Republic Records. His 1955 version of "Ain't That a Shame" was a huge hit, selling far better than Fats Domino's original version. This set the stage for the early part of Boone's career, which focused on covering R&B songs by black artists for a white market. Previously, rock 'n' roll had had only limited exposure outside of the African American community. The immense popularity of Pat Boone's covers also helped to bring attention to the original artists, such as Little Richard and Fats Domino and to rhythm and blues in general. In addition, the songwriters and copyright holders benefited even when individual artists did not.

In fact, only six of Boone's many hit singles were R&B covers, and only four of those were rockers. All were released in the first two years of his long career. These were "Ain't That a Shame" by Fats Domino and "Tutti Frutti" and "Long Tall Sally" by Little Richard, and "At My Front Door (Crazy Little Mama)" by the El Dorados. The other two R&B covers were blues ballads, "I Almost Lost My Mind" by Ivory Joe Hunter and "Chains of Love", a hit for Big Joe Turner and later B.B. King that had been written by Ahmet Ertegün. By 1957, Boone was concentrating on the middle-of-the-road music that dominated his career. Although he would continue, on occasion, to record R&B songs (such as "Two Little Kisses," a non-alcoholic version of "One Mint Julep"), they were only rarely released on singles (his version of The Capris' song, "There's a Moon Out Tonight" being a notable exception) as cover versions. Tutti Frutti was Little Richards first hit record in 1955; with its opening cry of Womp-bomp-a-loom-op-a-womp-bam-boom! and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also one of the...

Boone sported a clean-cut image that appealed to white teens and parents. His singing style, a rich baritone, followed in the tradition of his idol, Bing Crosby. Preferring to carry on in the Crosby tradition, he soon began turning more and more to ballads. Some of his biggest hits included "Love Letters in the Sand" (with the instrumental break featuring Boone's whistling), "April Love", "Friendly Persuasion (Thee I Love)", and "Don't Forbid Me".

A devout born-again Christian, he was raised in the conservative Church of Christ, but has been a member of a Pentecostal church since the late 1960s. Boone has refused both songs and movie roles that he felt might compromise his standards, including a role opposite the decade's reigning sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe. In his first film, April Love, he refused to give co-star/film love interest Shirley Jones an onscreen kiss, because the actress was married in real life.

The British Invasion effectively ended Boone's career as a hitmaker, though he continued recording (and having Billboard-charted hits) throughout the 1960s. In the 1970s, he switched to gospel and country, and he continued performing in other media as well, most importantly radio. He is currently working as the disc jockey of a popular oldies radio show and runs his own record company which provides a much-welcomed outlet for new recordings by 1950s greats who can no longer find a place with the major labels.

In the early 1990s, Boone joined Amway and spoke at many motivational seminars. He also became a distributor. In 1997, Boone released In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, a collection of heavy metal covers revamped to fit his style. To promote the album, he appeared at the American Music Awards in black leather, shocking audiences and losing his respectability among his largest constituency, conservative Christians.

Boone once claimed to use his own surname in lieu of curse words when upset.[2]


In 2006, Boone penned an article for WorldNetDaily in which he argued that Democrats and others who are against the Iraq War cannot, under any circumstances, be considered patriotic.[7] He was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on Fox News, where he expressed his outrage against the opponents of George W. Bush (namely the Dixie Chicks) that their criticisms of the President showed they did not "respect their elders".[8] Another article defended Mel Gibson after the actor was recorded making an anti-Semitic rant.[9] In early 2007, Boone wrote two articles claiming that the theory of evolution is an "absurd," "nonsensical" "bankrupt false religion."

As Chevrolet Spokesman

Pat Boone's well-groomed, clean-cut, boyish image won him a long-term product endorsement contract from General Motors during the late 1950's, lasting through the 60's.


Boone sung the praises of his product as "See the USA in your Chevrolet...drive your Chevrolet through the USA, America's the greatest land of all!"

By August 1969 the Bank of America was threatening to foreclose on a $1.2 million loan to the Oaks,[8] and the team was sold to a group of businessmen in Washington, DC and became the Washington Caps.[9] The National Basketball Association of the United States and Canada, commonly known as the NBA, is the premier professional basketball league in North America. ...
