Fiddlers Randall Franks and Bluegrass Hall of Fame member Chubby Wise, who helped popularize "The Orange Blossom Special," toured appearing doing twin fiddling at numerous American Bluegrass Festivals. Wise appeared with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in 1942-1948, Clyde Moody, the York Brothers, Flatt & Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys, and Connie B. Gay. In 1954, Wise became a member of Hank Snow's Rainbow Ranch Boys, returning to the Grand Ole Opry where he remained with the group until 1970. He also worked as a session musician with Mac Wiseman and Red Allen.
Franks also recorded with and produced the legendary fiddler.

"Chubby and his wife Rossie Wise were two of my dearest friends, and Chubby taught me so much about playing the fiddle and entertaining an audience. It was always a privilege to walk on stage with him, it was so easy for us to play together." Randall Franks
