In the mid-1950s, she sold 750,000 copies of a song called "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAqRtshU0P4" target="_blank">Will You, Willyum</a>." She played the Grand Ole Opry, <em>American Bandstand</em> and <em>The Tonight Show</em>. But her fame was short-lived. Martin got married and had a baby, which didn't sit so well with the people managing her career.
