Sheldon and Marshall Nations were from the Fair Oak Springs community, near Brookhaven, the county seat of Lincoln County. John Sheldon Nations (1910–85) played fiddle, and Marshall Dee Nations (1912–95) guitar. “A few of our tunes were our father’s,” Marshall wrote—one was “Magnolia One Step,” which his father called “Get Up In The Cool”—“but the others were our own compositions. My brother would sometimes take several old tunes, change them and put them together, making new ones, such as ‘Sales Tax Toddle.’”
