James Wayne “Jim” Stafford (born January 16, 1944) is an American comedian, musician, and singer-songwriter. While prominent in the 1970s for his records “Spiders & Snakes”, “Swamp Witch”, “Under The Scotsman’s Kilt”, “My Girl Bill”, and “Wildwood Weed”, Stafford has headlined at his own theater in Branson, Missouri, since 1990. Stafford is self-taught on guitar, fiddle, piano, banjo, organ and harmonica.
Jim Stafford’s first chart hit was “Swamp Witch”, produced by Lobo, which cracked the U.S. Top 40 in July 1973. On March 2, 1974 his biggest hit, “Spiders & Snakes”, peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, selling over two million copies, earning a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. that month. Jim Stafford continued to have moderate chart success through most of 1975.
