Floyd Cramer (October 27, 1933 – December 31, 1997) was an American Hall of Fame pianist

Cramer was one of the architects of the "Nashville Sound." He popularized the "slip note" piano style where an out-of-tune note slides effortlessly into the correct note. This was a major departure from the percussive piano style which was popular in the late 1950s.
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Cramer grew up in the small town of Huttig, Arkansas, teaching himself to play the piano. After finishing high school, he returned to Shreveport, where he worked as a pianist for the Louisiana Hayride radio show. After Cramer relocated permanently to Nashville, Allen "Puddler" Harris, a native of Franklin Parish in northeastern Louisiana, replaced him as the pianist for the Hayride.
