Calvin Scott "Scotty" Stoneman (1932–1973) was an American bluegrass and country fiddler, five-time National Fiddle Champion and a member of the Bluegrass Champs, the Kentucky Colonels and the Stoneman Family band. Noted for his wild, improvisational style, Stoneman originally learned to play from his maternal grandfather Bill Frost, a traditional fiddler from southwest Virginia
One night, Donna was backstage when she overheard the famous McGuire Sisters gossiping about the Champs’ performance of the bluegrass chestnut Roll in My Sweet Baby’s Arms.
He called it the Blue Grass Champs because all the musicians had won contests. At first the band consisted of Scott, Donna, Jimmy, Porter Church on banjo, and Jimmy Case on guitar, but after awhile Jimmy Case left and Scott hired Van. I want Van, he said. Well, Gene and I were living in the same house in Donelson, but I had made it clear I wouldn’t be a wife to him. He was taking care of the kids when I was out working with the family. Then the school authorities got into the picture. Every time anyone in the family is asked about Scott, it’s just like an awful flashback, like a Vietnam flashback. They started doing things like putting blue jeans on Grandpa Jones. They also fired Buck Owens.

The Stoneman Family (or the Stonemans) ranked among country music's most famous family bands, and were closely associated with their legendary father, Ernest "Pop" Stoneman, who played with them for a number of years. The core of the band was made up of six of Pop's 13 children: Patsy, Scotty, Donn. .The following year, they made it past the Top 30 with "The Five Little Johnson Girls. Following Pop Stoneman's death in 1968, Patsy Stoneman joined the band. In 1968, they had their final chart hit with "Christopher Robin," which only reached the Top 50. They underwent several major personnel changes through the '70s and began recording less frequently, gradually easing into retirement.
Pop Stoneman retired from his job in 1960 and the Blue Grass Champs became the Stonemans, building a strong following in the Washington area. They grabbed onto the folk revival, in the early '60s recorded for Starday and debuted on the Grand Ole Opry. The Stonemans left Washington and moved to Texas, California and Tennessee seeking national recognition, but it was elusive. For the next 19 years, Roni Stoneman was Ida Lee Nagger, the ironing board lady with the wide gap between her front teeth, a battered old housecoat and wig with rags tied to it, perpetually arguing with her shiftless husband, LaVerne. Though the stereotype was negative, the experience was "all positive," she says.
