Who is Hillous Butrum?
Hillous Buel "Bew" Butrum was an American country music guitar player and a record and video producer best known as being a member of Hank Williams' Drifting Cowboys. Hillous Butrum was born in Lafayette, Tennessee. Butrum found his way to Nashville and landed a job at WSM Radio. He eventually wound up a staff musician on the Grand Ole Opry, at age 16. From there, he played bass for Hank Williams' band "The Drifting Cowboys." He would play with the Drifting Cowboys from 1949 until 1950. After the passing of Williams, Butrum joined Hank Snow's band, the Rainbow Ranch Boys, and later played on many Marty Robbins recording sessions. He'd eventually start a music publishing company with Robbins. He established "Butrum Enterprises Publishing Company" and owned Look Records. He produced many early country music documentaries including "Music City USA". Butrum would tour again, from 1977 to 1984, with the reformed Drifting Cowboys.
