    Leroy Van Dyke Is Touring! - He has had a 59-year career in country music

    Leroy Van Dyke is thought to hold the record for most repeat-performance bookings of any working country music entertainer and is known by fellow musicians as the most professional act in country music. He has a bunch of dates booked.

    Van Dyke is the only entertainer who is also an internationally known licensed auctioneer.

    "Auctioneer" was written solely by Van Dyke while living in a squad tent during his stint in the U.S. Army. Leroy was a Special Agent, U. S. Army Counterintelligence Corps, in Korea. The debut single, in 1956, became an instant multi-million seller, then Leroy struck pay dirt again when he released his next mega hit in 1961 with "Walk On By.'
