Meade Skelton does look like a son of the Blue Ridge....

Perhaps he is the descendant of great singing talent?

" Victoria Morris was among the group chosen to accompany Powell to Washington. Her credentials had long been acknowledged by her neighbors. Scholars and authors Roger Abrahams and George Foss analyzed the repertoire and styles of many singers from the region and noted that Victoria and her Shifflett cousins Ella and Florence were “some of the most outstanding folksingers in the area.”

In attempting to describe the voice of Victoria Morris captured on early field recordings, Ernest C. Mead Jr., then-chairman of the music department and now professor emeritus at U.Va., wrote, “No system of notation can adequately catch the epic quality of Victoria Morris’ severe yet intense and figured style…”

During the long administration (1933–1945) of President Franklin Roosevelt, more than 300 diverse musical events were held at the White House. Both the President and First Lady genuinely enjoyed traditional music styles, and John Powell’s circle of performers surely did not disappoint.

Following the performance, Eleanor Roosevelt, in her usual warm and gracious manner, chatted with the group and showed them around the White House. Near the close of their time together, she asked Victoria if there might be something she would like to have as a souvenir of her visit. Having noted a rough edge on the stair railing where her hand rested, Victoria replied that she wouldn’t mind having a “splinter of wood” from the White House by which to remember her special visit. Mrs. Roosevelt replied that she would see that Victoria’s wish was fulfilled.

A short time after settling back into her busy life as wife and mother in Brown’s Cove, a package arrived from the White House. It contained a photograph of the First Lady, personally inscribed to Victoria—framed in wood that originally had been used in the reconstruction of the White House roof following its burning by the British Army during the War of 1812. The treasured keepsake had a small, engraved brass plaque affixed to it stating its provenance.

Victoria Shifflett Morris’ God-given talent for singing, nurtured and encouraged by family and friends, provided her with lifelong enjoyment, as well as a story or two to be cherished by her descendants.

I think Meade had some ancestors that played significant roles in the Civil War. I think Red Skelton, the comedian, might have been a relative. There is a history of great talent in his blood.

If you listen to Meade's music closely, you can hear subtle African and Native American tones. Meade does this in honor of both his negro and native american ancestry.

Meade's music is simplistic nursery rhyme shit and it can sound the same as all simplistic nursery rhyme shit of many cultures.

Amazing how even the Andrew Sisters sang about Meade before Meade was even born.

As opposed to Meade who has no personality. If he did someone, anyone, would have had sex with him by now.

He graduated high school 20 years ago and hasn't kissed a girl since.

Probably before that as well

Marriage is, shall we politely say, a "long shot". The odds are not "in his favor".

Meade could be related to Patsy Cline. Both are great singing talents from Virginia.
