From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Barton Lee Hazlewood (born July 9, 1929 in Mannford, Oklahoma) is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer.

The son of an oilman, Hazlewood spent most of youth living between Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, and Louisiana. Hazlewood spent his teenage years in Port Neches, TX where he was exposed to a rich Gulf Coast music tradition. Hazlewood studied for a medical degree at Southern Methodist University in Fort Worth, Texas. He served with the United States Army during the Korean War.

Hazlewood is perhaps most famous for writing the Nancy Sinatra hit, "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'." But Hazlewood's own output has also achieved something of a cult status in the American rock underground. Hazlewood has a distinctive baritone voice that adds an ominous resonance to his music. Hazlewood's collaborations with Nancy Sinatra as well as his solo output in the late 1960's and early 1970's have been praised as an essential contribution to a sound often described as 'Cowboy Psychedelia' or 'Saccharine Underground'


  • 1968 - "Nancy and Lee" - a collaboration with Nancy Sinatra which includes the song "Some Velvet Morning" (popularized by Sofia Coppola's film Lost in Translation.
  • 1969 - "The Cowboy and the Lady" - a collabration with Ann Margret.
  • 1970 - "Cowboy in Sweden" - recorded in Sweden and often regarded as one of Hazelwood's most bizzare recordings.
  • 1971 - "Requiem for an Almost Lady"
