Webb Michael Pierce (8 d'agost de 1921 - 24 de febrer de 1991) va ser un dels cantants nord-americans de honky tonk més populars a la dècada dels anys 1950, posant en llistes un major nombre de cançons que qualsevol altre artista country d'aquesta dècada.[2]

El seu major èxit va ser "In the jailhouse now" que va estar 37 setmanes a la cartellera, 21 d'elles com a número 1. Pierce també va tenir com a número u durant diverses setmanes cançons com "Slowly" (1954), "Love, Love, Love" (1955), "I Don't Care" (1955), "There Stands The Glass" (1953), "More And More" (1954), "I Ain't Never" (1959) i el seu primer número u "Wondering," que ho va ser durant 4 de les 27 setmanes que va romandre a les llistes.[3]

Per a molts, Pierce, amb el seu flamant estil, va ser la cara més reconeixible de la música country del moment i els seus excessos.[4] Va ser membre del Grand Ole Opry ia títol pòstum del Country Music Hall of Fame .
