Lauren Ashley Newton’s Father
Carson Wayne Newton was born in Norfolk, Virginia, on 3 April 1942. While his father served in the U.S. Navy during WWII, Newton spent his early years learning the piano, guitar, and steel guitar in Roanoke. He moved with his family near Newark, Ohio, where he’d perform in theaters, clubs, and fairs with his older brother, Jerry. Due to his severe asthma, the family later moved to Phoenix in 1952 before Newton finished his junior year at North High School.
The brothers, performing as the Rascals in Rhythm, appeared with the Grand Ole Opry roadshows and on ABC-TV’s Ozark Jubilee. They also performed in front of then-president Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Wayne performed on Gleason’s show 12 times two years after their five-year contract alongside his brother expired. His 1972 recording of Daddy, Don’t You Walk So Fast was an epic success that sold over one million copies, was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A., and peaked at #1 in Australia in June 1972. The Letter was another one of Newton’s #1 hits on the Cashbox Pop and Country.
Over the years, Newton has performed over 30,000 solo shows in Las Vegas, no wonder he goes by the name Mr. Las Vegas.
Apart from music, Newton loves horses and owns a horse breeding program called Aramus Arabians.
