The Black Oak Arkansas artist had been a member of the rock group since its inception in the 1960s. The group was formed by some “high school pals” who lived in the area around Black Oak, Arkansas.

First members included Rickie Lee Reynolds (guitar), Ronnie “Chicky Hawk” Smith (vocals), Harvey “Burley” Jett (guitar), Stanley “Goober Grin” Knight (guitar), Wayne “Squeezebox” Evans (drums), and “Dirty” Daugherty (bass).

In a 2018 interview with the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Rickie said: “We did not identify the band after simply the individuals within the city. We named the band after the city. No matter who you’re or what you do, there is a sure level in life if you find yourself at the pivot level from what you had been to what you’re.”

“The metropolis of Black Oak was a pivoting level for us. Whether they preferred us or not, that was the pivot in our historical past,” Reynolds added.  

The group found a lot of success in the ’70s when they released hits such as “Lord Have Mercy on My Soul,” “Uncle Lijiah,” “When Electricity Came to Arkansas,” and more.
