Ken Biddy was born on August 7 in Woodstock, GA. At the young age of eighteen, he found his niche in artist management forming H. Ken Biddy Entertainment taking on his first client, The Rock-A-Tones. Biddy booked the group throughout the state at Sock Hops setting the stage for them to open for Brenda Lee at the Rome City Auditorium. In 2009, The Rock-A-Tones were inducted into the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame as a group and for the song “You Lied To Me Honey” that was recorded in Cartersville, GA at a local radio station in 1959.
By the early 1980’s, Ken had the opportunity to sign the award-winning world famous country/gospel group The Chuck Wagon Gang. It was at this point that he and his partners decided they needed a more prestigious label name to honor The Chuck Wagon Gang and began Copperfield Records for that purpose. Operating from their Georgia office, the partners traveled to Nashville to carry out their business and to record ‘The Gang’ eventually opening a Nashville office on Music Row in 1984. It wasn’t until October 1985, that Biddy moved to Nashville as President of the operation seeking to be closer to the Nashville decision makers and songwriting community. It proved to be a wise decision for all who became involved with him.
During their 75-year career, the Gang sold in excess of 40 million records. Their career began to stall before Biddy began working with them. He had always admired their music and sought to again bring them to the attention they so richly deserved. Not only were they a successful southern gospel act, they were better known to audiences through their airplay on country radio. During the 1980’s, Biddy was the Executive Producer on 19 albums recorded for Copperfield. The Gang won several Music City News Awards, SESAC, DJ Awards, and induction into the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame. To this day, The 19 album catalog is distributed digitally and through select retailers and online at his copperfieldmusic.com website.
