Harris was talked into it by Sid Nathan of King records, his label.  King
quite often recorded country versions and R&B versions of the same song.
Also, there was an astute A&R at King by the name of Henry Glover at King.
There is an excellent book about King Records titled "King Of The Queen
City" by John Fox.
