Looks like Nat Stuckey, the producer, gets a pretty big billing here - here's a bit of info on him

"Aug 24 1988
Singer Nat Stuckey dies of lung cancer at 54

Country Music singer-songwriter Nat Stuckey is dead at age 54. The Cass County native died of lung cancer Wednesday in a Nashville, Tenn., hospital.
Stuckey, an Atlanta High School graduate, achieved fame and success singing and writing tunes like "Sweet Thang," "Pop a Top" and "Waitin' in Your Welfare Line."
He wrote his first No. 1 hit, "Waitin' in Your Welfare Line" while working as a radio announcer for KWKH radio station in Shreveport. The song was recorded by Buck Owens, and Stuckey moved to Nashville in 1968 when he signed a contrract with RCA Victor Records.
He was nominated for a Grammy Award for best sacred performance for his 1969 duet with Connie Smith titled "Whispering Hope."
"Pop a Top" was a hit for Jim Ed Brown, nominated for two Grammies for the song in 1968.
Stuckey had recorded for Paula, RCA, MCA and Krystal International labels during his career.
He most recently recorded commercial jingles, including one for Budweiser beer to be aired next month."

Nat and Lee worked at the same radio station, KWKH in Shreveport, and may have recorded this during that time - I'm not sure.

I wonder if that Budweiser Beer commericial was for Kelso Kerston's (The producer of No Milk Today) Jangle Jingle Inc?
