Gotta Travel On - Nyt nostan kytkimen
Carola released the single "Nyt nostan kytkimen" (Now I'll release the clutch) in 1964. It was a minor hit but her most successful years were still to come. Thr lyrics were provided by Johan "Mosse" Viksted., who is best known for being a legendary boss of a record company and helping to build the career for such artists as Lasse Mårtenson and Carola. The covered song was called "Gotta Travel On". It was made popular by Billy Grammer, an American country music singer and noted guitar player. The song was million-selling single in 1959 and made it onto both the country and pop music charts.
