Singing and Strumming—and Shooting?

Singing and Strumming—and Shooting?
A Vintage Photos Theme Park photo for the theme of sing, sing, sing!—folks making music vocally.

An unidentified country musician poses in front of a microphone bearing the call letters for radio station WVLN in Olney, Illinois. Although the microphone and guitar suggest that he sang and played for a show on the station, I haven't been able to determine who he is. I was surprised to see that he was wearing a holster with a revolver. I hope he stuck to the singing and strumming and avoided any shooting.

This is an unused real photo postcard with no date or any other additional information on the other side.

John FitzGerald, Smiley Derleth have particularly liked this photo

He must've been used to playing in some tough joints, eh?

It looks like it, doesn't it? I don't think I have any other photos of gun-carrying musicians!
