Hal Denman's Carolina Cotton Pickers were one of the more popular bands in Indiana in the 1920s, but they didn't record until 1931. Denman was from North Carolina and had been leading a band called the Carolina Cotton Pickers before joining a band called The Pirate Entertainers in 1923. When he moved to Indiana in 1924 he still had some old Carolina Cotton Pickers stationery laying around so he revived the band name. The band broke up sometime around 1932.
