Johnnie & Jack were an American country music duo composed of Johnnie Wright (1914–2011) and Jack Anglin (1916–1963). The duo became members of the Grand Ole Opry in the 1940s.[1] Between 1951 and 1962, the duo released several singles on the RCA Victor Records label, including their version of "Goodnite, Sweetheart, Goodnite" which peaked at No. 4 on the Best Seller charts,[2] and the No. 1 "(Oh Baby Mine) I Get So Lonely".

Following Anglin's death in a car accident in 1963, Wright became a solo artist, topping the country charts in 1965 with "Hello Vietnam".
